Sweet Tooth and Trillium creator Jeff Lemire has revealed updated releases dates for projects he’s working on — A.D.: After Death with writer Scott Snyder from Image Comics and Roughneck, which he’s both writing and drawing himself, from Simon and Schuster’s new Gallery 13 imprint.
Announced back in January of 2015, A.D.: After Death tells the story of what happens when mankind cures death. A.D.: After Death will be serialized as three, oversized prestige format books written by Snyder and fully painted by Lemire. The first volume is due in November.
Roughneck, meanwhile, is about a former hockey tough guy living in small-town Canada, like his Essex County trilogy. It’s now due in April 2017 from Gallery 13, a new graphic novel imprint which will launch next year. In addition to Lemire’s book, the imprint will also re-release Stephen King and Bernie Wrightson’s Creepshow and will publish Alone, a French graphic novel by Christophe Chaboute, according to ICv2.
