Official Press Release
Earlier this year, Legendary Comics revealed Jim Lee's cover for the first book of The Tower Chronicles trilogy. At that time, the company promised that the remaining covers were going to be drawn by equally renowned comic book artists. Well, if there was any doubt as to the veracity of that promise, Legendary put it to rest during its Comics panel at San Diego Comic-Con when it revealed the cover for the second part of Volume One -- as created by Alex Ross. (See below.)Â The art showcasesÂ a spectacular shot of the title character in action. The release is scheduled to hit stores in November.
With a lead character created by Legendary founder Thomas Tull, Executive Producer of 300 & The Dark Knight, and developed by Tull and Matt Wagner (Grendel, Mage), THE TOWER CHRONICLES creates a new mythology on familiar worlds through a unique take on the bounty hunter storyline. The all-new IP sets the standard for future releases from Legendary.
Be on the lookout at for more information on THE TOWER CHRONICLES leading up to the launch of the first book this September.
