by Olly MacNamee
The Youth creative team, Curt Pires, Alex Diotto, Dee Cunniffe, along with Rockwell White and Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou have a new series coming from Image Comics. Indigo Children, launching in March from Image Comics.
Radiant Black meets The Department of Truth in this epic new story that follows journalist Donovan Price as he hunts down the extraordinarily gifted Indigo Children after their mysterious disappearances fifteen years prior.
Pires said of this new project:
“I’m ecstatic to be back at Image Comics with Indigo Children—a book that’s been meticulously crafted with my closest collaborators Alex and Dee and new members of the team Rockwell and Hassan. We’ve been working on this book for years—fine tuning and perfecting it and are excited to finally bring it to the world come March 2023.”
“I’m incredibly fortunate to work alongside this creative team for my first long-form comic book. It has been a surreal experience writing these characters and stories with Curt over the years and seeing them realized in such spectacular fashion.”
“I’m thrilled to be back with Team Youth on this new project,” said Cunniffe. “A weird little book which has scratched that X-files and Arthur C. Clarke’s Mysterious World itch I’ve had for years!”
“I’m very proud of the work our team has done on this book, and I can’t wait for readers to join us in this new adventure!”
The new series will also feature a lineup of variant covers by Tyler Boss, Tula Lotay, and Jenny Frisson. Plus, the series has already been optioned for a feature film, currently in development from Alan Wake producer, Jeff Ludwig.
Indigo Children #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, March 29th.
