‘Revolution’ ended its 2 year run as NBC’s post-apocalyptic world where the power has been cut off yet everyone still looked freshly showered without a proper ending though now we’ll see it come to a close in digital form! The plan is for the digital series to bring full closure to the multitude of open ended story arcs that were never able to be resolved before the network pulled the series off the air. The aired season turned series finale was really just a tease for a curtain call with so much left unexplored.
The best part of this revival for fans? Everyone from the creative team, which includes executive producers Eric Kripke, J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, Rockne S. O’Bannon, and Jon Favreau, have returned to put together the mini-series. It will be a four-issue run that DC Comics is putting together in order to give us how they wanted the series to end. All of the writing is being directly handled by the show’s writers David Reed and Ryan Parrott. Helping out is also the rest of the creative team which includes Paul Grellong, David Rambo, Trey Callaway, Anne Cofell Saunders, Ben Edlund, Matt Pitts and Jim Barnes.
On DC’s end, the book will be illustrated by Angel Hernandez with each of the four chapters having a special cover to them. Starting Monday May 4th we’ll be getting these installments every 2 weeks until the story concludes.
We’ve also got a few illustrations of Charlie Matheson, Miles Matheson, and Sebastian Monroe to share with you!
Each of these chapters will be released on ComicBook.com for one week and later released on Revolution’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Revolution. According to executive producer Eric Kripke he and Abrams, “are pleased and proud to announce the REVOLUTION endgame: a four-issue series coming soon from DC Comics. If you take a look at the attached photo, you’ll see that we brought back the entire writing staff to work on it. The band’s back together! (And if you study the photo closely, you’ll notice a certain young, plucky Matheson who also joined us). Everyone has generously agreed to work for little or no money. They’re doing it, because like you, they’re passionate about this story and want to see it end correctly. ”
