Dynamite Entertainment announced on Tuesday that it will launch its Highlander comic-book series in July just like it did with Red Sonja and Battlestar Galactica -- with a 25-cent #0 issue.

The #0 issue will feature a cover painting by Gabriele Dell'Otto, as well as a photo cover.

The new series will be written by Brandon Jerwa and Michael Oeming, with art by Lee Moder.

Here's how Dynamite describes the book:

"Featuring events that start off shortly after the first film, Connor MacLeod, the Immortal Highlander, finds himself in the middle of a present-day reunion that takes him back to Berlin, right after the events of the Second World War! During the 'Coldest War' Connor comes up against the Kurgan and the cadre of highly trained super-assassins who follow him."
