SDCC Announcement: The Return of John Byrne’s Next Men

Saturday, Jul 24th, 2010

Next Men SDCC imageGenre-defining series returns this December



San Diego, CA (July 24, 2010) - IDW Publishing, a premier publisher of graphic novels and books, and award-winning creator John Byrne, today announced the long-awaited return of Byrne's fan-favorite series, John Byrne's Next Men. Picking up where to series left off in 1995, Byrne and IDW will at last return fans to the world ofProject: Next Men.

Debuting in 1991, Byrne's Next Men originally ran for thirty issues and a standalone prequel graphic novel, 2112. Next Men developed an all-new world of superheroes grounded in modern reality. The series quickly became one of the most critically acclaimed runs of Byrne's remarkable career, but ceased publication in 1995 and left fans with a cliffhanger at the end of issue 30. Now, coinciding with the twentieth anniversary of the original first issue, Byrne and IDW invite fans back into the world of the Next Men.


IDW has previously collected the existing Next Men material, in two black and white "Compleat" volumes and oversized Premiere Edition hardcovers, the third volume of which will be available in stores on September 1, 2010.

"When John started working for us three or four years ago, two things happened, and have been happening pretty much every month since then," said IDW's CCO/Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall. "I've been asking John about doing new Next Men comics, and fans have been e-mailing me demanding that we do new Next Men stories. Happily, after all this time, John is going to quiet us all down and do just that."

Man I loved this comic back in the day. I'm glad to have a reason to step back in a comic store again.
