January 19, 2011 – Los Angeles, CA – This March BOOM! Studios brings you the future of war and a vision of revolution on a galactic scale with INSURRECTION V3.6! Join Blake Masters (BROTHERHOOD) and acclaimed writer Michael Alan Nelson (28 DAYS LATER, DINGO) with white hot artist Michael Penick as they bring you a devastating new series about conflict, humanity, and the cost of freedom. Join the fight and prepare for INSURRECTION V3.6!
In INSURRECTION V3.6 enter a future where pollution, poverty, and armed conflict have been obliterated. Only off-world on the terraformed moons of distant planets does war still exist. Corporations command more power than governments and when they go to war, they use their own military force — armies composed of bio-engineered clones. For generations, these clones have not questioned why they live and die while their makers risk nothing. But now, one of their own will stand up against injustice, sparking a revolution that will change the entire galaxy, igniting INSURRECTION!
INSURRECTION V3.6 is written by Blake Masters (BROTHERHOOD) and Michael Alan Nelson (28 DAYS LATER, DINGO), with art by sensational artist Michael Penick. This title ships in March with A & B covers in a 50/50 split by Karl Richardson and Rael Lyra respectively, and carries a Diamond Code of JAN111041.
“Ever since Red Dwarf was sort-of-brought-back last year, courtesy of the TV channel Dave, there’s been persistent chatters that a full-on series would duly follow. Yet, until now, there’s been no official sign of it being commissioned.
But that’s all changed. Craig Charles let slip the news when chatting on Real Radio’s breakfast show earlier this week, when he said that “They’ve commissioned another series of Red Dwarf. We’re going to film at the end of November, December and January.”
He went on to say that it was only worth doing if it was “as funny as it used to be”, arguing that “we’ve got to recapture the highlights like series 5, series 6, that kind of stuff. If we can hit that mark, then brilliant. There’s no point doing it if it’s a bit so-so.”
Robert Llewellyn confirmed the news on his website, revealing that it was a new six-episode run that was coming, and that once again, we’ve got Dave to thank for it. “The plan at the moment,” he revealed, “and this could change, the plan is that we record the new series in front of an audience.'”
