Series based on FX biker drama will launch in September
"Sons of Anarchy" has found a new — but decidedly old-fashioned — way to draw fans in.
The FX biker drama has inspired a comic book, which will launch Sept. 11 through a partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products and BOOM! Studios, which publishes such comics and graphic novels as "Adventure Time," "2 Guns" and "28 Days Later."
The hit drama will be brought into the comic-book realm by a creative team that includes writer Christopher Golden ("Hellboy"), artist Damian Couceiro ("Incorruptible") and cover artist Garry Brown ("X-Men," "Spider-Man").
BOOM! Studios CEO Ross Richie said that the "Sons of Anarchy" comics will add to the show's mythology "in a way that is authentic and meaningful."
"Our team at BOOM! Studios includes some of the biggest fans of 'Sons of Anarchy' and with our long-time desire to create a comic series around the show now a reality, we couldn’t be more excited," Richie said. "We are focused on adding to the mythology of the show in a way that is authentic and meaningful, while working closely alongside ['Sons of Anarchy' creator] Kurt [Sutter], FX and Fox so that the fans get the best experience from a 'Sons of Anarchy' comic."
"Sons of Anarchy" returns for its sixth season, which is currently in production, on Sept. 10.
