Comic News:
Future Announces Fourth Title
By Brian Jacks


Future Comics has released information on the fourth monthly title from the minds of David Michelinie and Bob Layton. Entitled Peacekeeper, the book will debut in August 2003.

"Peacekeeper promises to be Future Comics' most intriguing title yet, being set in the world of international espionage and intrigue," says series writer and Editor-In-Chief Bob Layton.

Co-Plotted by Future's Head writer David Michelinie, the first issue of Peacekeeper heralds the Future Comics debut of two of the industry's premiere talents: Pat Broderick (Micronauts) & Terry Austin (X-Men).

Asked to elaborate on the premise, Layton responded, "The Brahman Objective is a computer-generated blueprint that could guide humankind to a utopian existence. But in the wrong hands, it could be perverted into a plan to control the world's governments and economies.

"The benevolent Peacekeepers have clandestinely existed for over forty years, slowly manipulating global events to conform to the Brahman Objective--until today.

"Betrayed by one of their own, the Peacekeepers are all but eliminated. And from the ashes of an unthinkable holocaust, a single survivor rises: a reluctant hero obsessed with justice, retribution...and retrieval of the Brahman Objective."

Layton went on to explain, "Being a huge science buff, I’m loading this series with enough next generation hardware to gag a black hole. Our unofficial science consultant, Robert Smithers, has been working closely with me to get all the technology as close to reality as possible. I want this adventure series to be fantastic-yet credible.”

Peacekeeper #1 premieres in August.
