Titan Comics are pleased to announce the launch of an all-new comic series, The Blacklist, based on the successful television series.
Hitting stores on July 22, 2015, Issue #1 comes with two covers to collect: an original painted cover of Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington from fan-favorite artist, Alice X Zhang (Doctor Who) and a photo cover with an iconic image of Red. The Blacklist comic will also be available to read on personal digital devices.
The comic series is penned by Nichole Phillips and drawn by Beni Lobel (Constantine, Batman: Arkham Unhinged) and developed in conjunction with The Blacklist TV series from Sony Pictures Television. The first arc (Issues 1-5) will feature stories which expand upon the events of the TV series and feature all the major characters from the show, including the formidable Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington, played by James Spader, along with characters Lizzie (Megan Boone), Donald Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff), Dembe (Hisham Tawfiq) and others.
“A true extension of the television series, The Blacklist comic will take you on a journey deep into the dark world of international espionage, conspiracies, and intrigue on a global scale and explore new dimensions of the characters that have captured the audiences worldwide,” said David Leach, The Blacklist comic editor.
About “The Blacklist” TV Show
Since its premiere in 2013, “The Blacklist” has emerged as one of the leading dramas on television. Now in its second season, in February 2015, “The Blacklist” was selected to air in the premium time period behind the Super Bowl, the highest rated TV event of the year.
For decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader, “The Office,” “Boston Legal”) has been one of the FBI’s Most Wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The Concierge of Crime.” Mysteriously, Red surrendered to the FBI and now the FBI works with him as he identifies a “blacklist” of politicians, mobsters, spies and international terrorists. He will help catch them all… with the caveat that Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone) continues to work as his partner. Red will teach Liz to think like a criminal and “see the bigger picture”… whether she wants to or not. Also starring are Diego Klattenhoff (“Homeland”), Harry Lennix (“Man of Steel”), Amir Arison (“Girls”) and Mozhan Marno (“House of Cards”).
Jon Bokenkamp (“The Call,” “Taking Lives”), John Eisendrath (“Alias”), John Davis (“Predator,” “I, Robot,” “Chronicle”), John Fox and Michael Watkins (“The X-Files”) serve as executive producers. “The Blacklist” is a production of Sony Pictures Television and Davis Entertainment.
“The Blacklist” airs on NBC with up to 5 recent episodes available to view on demand on NBC OnDemand, NBC.com and Hulu.com. Season 1 is available on Netflix.
