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.
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.
