Official Press Release
San Diego, CA (February 15, 2008)-Fans can still get their Jack Bauer fix. This month, all-new 24 stories will keep readers on the edge of their seats as IDW Publishing releases 24: Cold Warriors.
In this 48-page one-shot, Jack Bauer and Chloe O'Brian are far away from their comfort zone of Los Angeles. Instead, they find themselves at a remote communications station in Alaska during a huge snow storm where they try to stop a Russian terrorist from Jack's past who wants to bring down all wireless communications in the U.S.. "These terrorists are former Soviet KGB agents from the old war," says Andrew Steven Harris, 24 editor for IDW. "They're so dangerous that after the end of the Cold War, even their own government tried to assassinate them."
"Our partnership with IDW has been very gratifying for our division as well as for fans of the show," stated Virginia King, Vice President of U.S. Licensing for Twentieth Century Fox Licensing & Merchandising. "The quality of the writing, the creation of original story arcs, and top-drawer illustrations are all superb and do justice to a powerful show. The graphic novels have helped fill the void as fans await the return of the show to broadcast."
24: Cold Warriors was written by Beau Smith, who also wrote Wynonna Earp. It features art from Steve Bryant, who did the art for Athena Voltaire.
