Bestselling Massive-Verse Title C.O.W.L. Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary, REturns With New Miniseries C.O.W.L.: 1964

COWL-1964Bestselling C.O.W.L. by Kyle Higgins (Radiant Black), Alec Siegel (Hadrian’s Wall), and Rod Reis (New Mutants)—first launched in 2014—will officially become part of the Massive-Verse universe of superhero series alongside Radiant Black, Rogue Sun, No/One, and others, and will kick-off a new chapter this August from Image Comics. C.O.W.L.: 1964 will reunite the original creative team for a three-issue miniseries just in time for the series’ 10 year anniversary.

“I find it incredibly surreal to reunite with Kyle and Alec for more C.O.W.L. work after a decade,” said Reis. “Reflecting on the past 10 years, it’s evident how much our lives and careers have changed, and readers will see that reflected in the upcoming pages.”

Siegel added: “I’m excited to jump back into this world with Kyle and Rod after all this time. We’ve always felt like there was more story to tell and we’re eager for readers to dive in and see where their favorite characters are in 1964 and what new challenges they face.”

“Returning to C.O.W.L. is very special for me,” said Higgins. “The series’ origins date back to my college thesis film, The League, and before that to the short story I wrote that got me into film school. It’s something that’s been with both Alec and myself for a long time. When Alec, Rod and I started this book In 2014, the idea of building it to be a part of a something larger wasn’t something that we thought we would ever be able to do. Now, as we come back to finish the core story, we’ll also be setting the stage for the future of C.O.W.L. and in some ways, The Massive-Verse.”
