IDW and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products have teamed up to launch a new 24 comic book series, 24: Underground, set to act as a prequel to the upcoming series 24: Live Another Day.

Debuting in April 2014, the comic picks up where the final season of the hit show left off, before leading straight into 24: Live Another Day.

The new comic comes from acclaimed writer Ed Brisson and artist Michael Gaydos.

“Ed burst onto the comics scene with the sci-fi thriller ‘Comeback,’ which was heavy on plot and adventure, a style that fits nicely with an established property such as ‘24,’” said editor Denton J. Tipton.

“We’ve paired the rising star with veteran artist Michael Gaydos, whose draftsmanship and storytelling skills are second to none. Buckle up for a high-octane tale of Jack Bauer’s missing years.”

Greg Goldstein, IDW president and chief operating officer, added: “‘24’ was one of IDW’s earliest successes with licensed comics.

“And the show’s stature has grown immensely since then. Returning to the world of ‘24’ in comics, in conjunction with this highly anticipated return to TV, makes perfect sense.”
