DEATH JR. RETURNS

Backbone Entertainment and Image Comics on Thursday announced that Death, Jr. will return to comic book shelves later this year in a second three-issue, full-color series.

The series, scheduled for a July launch, will feature the return of both Ted Naifeh as illustrator and Gary Whitta as writer.

"The first series of the DJ comic received an unbelievable amount of attention from critics and comic-book fans," said Mike Mika, studio head of Backbone Entertainment's Emeryville location. "We're thrilled to have Ted and Gary back on board to further the world of Death, Jr."

Death, Jr follows the teenage of son of the grim reaper and his band of unusual friends as they always seem to find themselves in trouble.

"Image Comics is very excited to once again be bringing the adventures of Death, Jr. and his pals to the printed page," said Jim Demonakos, Image Comics' public relations and marketing coordinator. "Another series is just what the fans have been asking for."

Here's how Image describes the new series:

"After a tumultuous school year in which DJ and his friends had to band together to fight DJ's evil uncle Moloch, the second series will find the gang on their summer vacation. DJ gets his wish and starts working a summer job with his dad, but he's disappointed to learn he has to work his way up from the bottom, while the rest of the gang is headed for a less-than-savory summer camp experience."

Backbone Entertainment will be premiering the first new piece of art from the comic as a poster for next week's WonderCon in San Francisco, where the company will also be selling copies of the first trade paperback, the PSP game and new T-shirts. In addition, Backbone will stage a trade paperback signing at its booth with Naifeh, Whitta and Mike Mignola, who drew the trade's cover
