‘Jericho’ to return (in comic book form, at least)

Comics, Television

Buffy the Vampire Slayer isn’t the only recent cult hit to be resurrected as a comic book following its TV finale: Devil’s Due Publishing will launch a title based on Jericho this fall.

The extremely popular — yet somehow poorly rated — postapocalyptic CBS drama was canceled during its second season last year. (It had already survived cancellation once before after its first season ended.)

Devil’s Due has published such titles as Micronauts as well as comics based on Dungeons & Dragons, R.A. Salvatore’s DemonWars, Voltron and G.I. Joe.
