Doug TenNapel’s “Creature Tech” gets the full-color treatment from Image next year
A guy and a humanoid praying mantis riding a motorcycle.
A zombified evil scientist who wants to destroy the world via a giant space eel.
All from the guy who created Earthworm Jim. How have I never read this?
Originally published in 2002, Doug TenNapel’s Creature Tech is getting a brand new, fully colored collection, due out early next year. With a plot involving all sorts of mad scientists, genetic experiments, and Indiana Jones-style adventure, it’s high time the book found a new audience. Check out the details below.
NEW FULL-COLOR EDITION OF CREATURE TECH ARRIVES THIS JANUARY
PORTLAND, OR, 10/22/2018 — Doug TenNapel (Earthworm Jim, GEAR, Ghostopolis, Cardboard) will release a new full-color edition of his science fiction adventure graphic novel—CREATURE TECH—from Image Comics this January.
In CREATURE TECH, good battles evil, and the world hangs in the balance! Resurrected by the Shroud of Turin, the zombified Dr. Jameson sets out to finish what he started 150 years ago—destroying the earth with a giant space eel. Standing in his way is Dr. Ong, a would-be pastor-turned-scientist who now works in a government research facility infamously known as “Creature Tech.” Aided by an unlikely cast of rednecks, symbiotic aliens, and a CIA-trained mantid, Dr. Ong embarks on a journey of faith, love, and self-discovery.
All in a day’s work at Creature Tech!
Creature Tech, New Edition will hit comic shops on January 2, 2019 and other retailers on January 8, 2019.
