Welcome Back Jack!

Here’s one more random fact about CTU Agent Jack Bauer: he now needs more than one shot to knock out comics fans. Where once Jack could be contained in 48 pages, now he needs a six-part miniseries to properly do justice to his exploits.  

Following on the success of the three previous 24 offerings—24: One  
Shot, 24 Stories, and 24: Midnight Sun—IDW Publishing is proud to  
present the first-ever 24 comic book miniseries, 24: Nightfall.
  
Jack Bauer’s rough days are not only contained to the medium of  
television. 24: Nightfall is a prequel to the ongoing hit Fox  
television series. Before the clock started ticking on season one,  
Jack Bauer was the head of an elite Special Forces team sent to take  
down the mass-murder, Victor Drazen—a most challenging task by any  
means, especially in the war-torn former Yugoslavia. Events quickly  
spiral out of control, as the hunters become the hunted—and the truth  
behind the pivotal Operation: Nightfall is revealed.
  
24: Nightfall, a six-part adventure premiering in November, is  
written by regular 24 writers J.C. Vaughn and Mark L. Haynes, the  
team that brought you 24: Midnight Sun, and with pencils and inks by  
Jean Diaz. Variant covers on each will be provided by Joe Corroney  
(Spike vs. Dracula). All of Corroney’s covers will make up on large  
poster image, as well.

"For fans of 24, particularly those who have been on the edges of their seats since Season One, this is the story that sets everything in motion for Jack Bauer," said co-writer J.C. Vaughn. "The events in Season One were directly related to events two years to the day earlier. Now our readers will get to see exactly what happened and  
lead to the coolest show on television."
  
“IDW Publishing and its talented team takes the 24 fans to a place  
before the series begins—and the writers  continue to deliver on the  
taut, engaging and almost addictive quality of 24 in this creative  
iteration. If you’re a fan of  the televison series 24—then this  
prequel will satisfy  beyond  expectations,” added Michael Peikoff,  
Vice-President 20th Century Fox  Licensing & Merchandising.
  
24: Nightfall #1 (Diamond Order Code SEP063363), the first issue of  
an all-new, 32-page six-issue miniseries, premieres in November 2006.
