Although the movie deals with what happens when we find out that there are Nazis living on the moon (I honestly thought I’d never write a sentence like that in my life…) IDW is working on a prequel book that will show us how they got there.
IRON SKY Graphic Novel to Invade U.S. in 2013
San Diego, CA, (December 5, 2012) – IDW Publishing, along with comic production house Hazmat Studios and film production company Blind Spot Pictures, are thrilled to present fans with the official IRON SKY movie tie-in graphic novel in March 2013. Drawn and colored by the amazing artistic team of Gerry Kissell and Amin Amat, the guys behind IDW’s best selling graphic novel Code Word: Geronimo, and Xbox’s comic game tie-in Alan Wake. The book will also be featuring original pin-up art by Miguel Angel Abad (Planet of the Apes) and Darren Douglas (Golden Compass) and chronicles the battle against the return of history’s most notoriously evil villains, the Nazis, who unbeknownst to us, escaped to the moon following their defeat in World War II.
“The graphic novel is a prequel to the hit sci-fi action film Iron Sky produced by Blind Spot Pictures, and focuses on how the Nazis ended up on the moon, and how Udo Kier’s character, Wolfgang Kortzfleisch, became Der Überführer.” Said lead artist Kissell. “Part steampunk and part comedy, the graphic novel was written masterfully by Alan Wake scribe, Mikko Rautalahti. who has a wicked sense of humor.” Kissell continued.
The book will be 104 pages, with 67 pages of comic art with an additional 33 pages of production art, behind the scenes bonus material, and other exclusive material written by the film’s director, Timo Vuorensola.
So… sounds kind of… I don’t know! But the combination of steampunk and comedy does intrigue me. To find out more about IDW, go to http://www.idwpublishing.com and for more on Hazmat Studios check out http://www.hazmat-studios.com.
