When it comes to comic books fans are always waiting for some type of change up. Jim Zub, Sean Izaakse, and Max Dunbar are doing just that with Champions # 25. Changing the whole world that the team has to deal with.
Jim Zub taps into his fondness for fantasy to bring this story to life. “Everyone who knows me and my work knows that sword & sorcery is near and dear to my heart. It’s a potent vehicle for building stories of survival and heroism in worlds where life can end on the tip of a blade and creatures lurk in every shadow,” adds Zub. “The Champions fight for what’s right, no matter where they are…or who they are, and this upcoming weird and wonderful three-part story is going to show you how true that is.”
The story has two of the teammates vanishing into Weirdworld. This leaves the rest of the Champions with no choice but to follow. “However, the changes this will put them through are both profound and unexpected—and will lead to something new on the horizon!”SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort teases
This October join the Champions in this three-part weird and twisted fantasy story. In this quest prepare for sacrifice as the heroes encounter the monsters and nightmares only found in Weirdworld. The end of this quest will lead to something new at the end for the Champions. It all begins in CHAMPIONS #25, in comic shops this fall!
I for one am a big fan of fantasy and think there is always room for more. There are always hints of fantasy references in comics, but this seems that we finally get to see our heroes in a full out fantasy realm. I am excited to see where they go from here.
