IDW is working on a miniseries prequel to the hit 1986 film Highlander. Scottish fantasy novelist Brian Ruckley is working with Rebels artist Andrea Mutti on the miniseries, which will follow Connor MacLeod's early years as an immortal and what led him from medieval Scotland to modern-day New York City.
“In the 30 years since its release, Highlander has inspired a massive cult following that craves new stories based on the original film,” said IDW Senior Editor Denton J. Tipton. “Many have tried, to varying degrees of success, but Brian has crafted an exciting narrative that will honor and bolster the underpinnings of Highlander. Also, epic sword fights!”
Ruckley and Mutti's Highlander miniseries is scheduled to debut in February.
