The Fox franchise 24 is being renewed with a new lead character in the TV series 24: Legacy, but its IDW Publishing that will be telling the story of Jack Bauer's replacement.
Beginning this April, the five-issue 24: Legacy will elaborate on the origin of Eric Carter (played by Corey Hawkins) and his transition to becoming a national hero and hunted man.
“I’ve been a fan of 24 since the first episode, and I’m grateful to IDW for giving me the chance to contribute in a small way to its mythology," writer Christopher Farnsworth told The Hollywood Reporter. " I also get to blow a lot of stuff up on the page, which is always pretty cool. I’m going to do my best to live up to the expectations of the show."
Farnsworth will work with G.I. Joe: Cobra artist Antonio Fuso, with the showrunners behind the new tv series - Manny Coto and Evan Katz - overseeing the in-continuity prequel.
