This September, the followers of SAMCRO will need to ride their hogs to their local comics shop.

Earlier, BOOM! Studios released a teaser hinting that come September, it will begin publishing "Sons of Anarchy" based on the popular FX television series created by Kurt Sutter that month. Written by novelist and frequent "Hellboy" collaborator Christopher Golden and drawn by Damian Couceiro, the series will feature covers by "Scalped" artist RM Guerra.

While the TV series focuses on the ongoing trials and tribulations of Jax Teller's constant struggle with remaining in or getting out of the legendary founding chapter of the Sons of Anarchy biker gang, the series will tell a standalone tale tied to the history of the club.

Check out the full solicitation below, and stay tuned to CBR News next week for an interview with Golden.

Author: Christopher Golden
Artist: Damian Couceiro
Cover Artist: R.M. Guéra

WHY WE LOVE IT: Sons of Anarchy has captivated the attention of the entire BOOM! team with its smart plotting, compelling characters, and modern vision of the outlaw genre. We love the show so much we couldn’t wait to help expand the world of SAMCRO.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Gun-smuggling outlaw bikers with complex pasts and gripping personalities. If you love “guys with guns” like we do, this is that genre at its most elevated.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: With no one else to turn to, the daughter of an old SAMCRO member comes to Charming looking for help. The only people standing between Kendra and certain death are the Sons of Anarchy, and, for better or for worse, Sergeant-at-Arms Tig.
