Vertigo announced on their blog yesterday that they’ve more than doubled the length of the upcoming Joe the Barbarian mini-series by Grant Morrison and Sean Murphy. What was originally going to be a three issue series will now run eight issues. You can also check out some additional preview pages by clicking on the link above.
Morrison has described the comic as “Home Alone meets Lord of the Rings,” with the titular character entering a dream state in which his toys come to life. It begins in January.
