PORTLAND, OR, 10/22/2018 — Doug TenNapel (Earthworm Jim, GEAR, Ghostopolis, Cardboard) will release a new full-color edition of his science fiction adventure graphic novel—CREATURE TECH—from Image Comics this January.
In CREATURE TECH, good battles evil, and the world hangs in the balance! Resurrected by the Shroud of Turin, the zombified Dr. Jameson sets out to finish what he started 150 years ago—destroying the earth with a giant space eel. Standing in his way is Dr. Ong, a would-be pastor-turned-scientist who now works in a government research facility infamously known as “Creature Tech.” Aided by an unlikely cast of rednecks, symbiotic aliens, and a CIA-trained mantid, Dr. Ong embarks on a journey of faith, love, and self-discovery.
All in a day’s work at Creature Tech!
CREATURE TECH, NEW EDITION (Diamond code: OCT180058, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0918-0) hits comic book stores on Wednesday, January 2nd and bookstores on Tuesday, January 8th. It can be preordered via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indiebound, and Indigo.
CREATURE TECH will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
