Originally printed by Dark Horse Comics in 2005, Paul Jenkins and Humberto Ramos teamed on Revelations, a six-issue detective mystery comic book. The series came while the pair were working on Spectacular Spider-Man together, but when both were a little lower profile than they are today.
Now, thanks to Jenkins' exclusive deal with BOOM! Studios, the series is returning for a reprinting. Interestingly, it's not just as a collection - it's actually being re-serialized in a six issue monthly series starting in January 2014. Whether this is because there might be more on the way, well BOOM! isn't saying just yet. Stay tuned to Newsarama for more on this re-release soon. Here's what BOOM! has to say about Revelations.
