Falling Skies WEB Premiers Online!!!
Following up on the announcement made in July at Comic-Con International, Dark Horse and TNT are set to launch the all-new bi-weekly webcomic series FALLING SKIES today! Not only will this give fans something to tide them over until the highly anticipated TV series debuting in summer 2011, but will also follow up the exclusive 12 page comic book distributed at New York Comic Con last month! The webcomic series details the events that take place before the series premieres on TNT.
Written by longtime Dark Horse cohort, Mark Verheiden (Aliens Vs. Predator, My Name Is Bruce), the series FALLING SKIES will storyboard the harrowing events of the alien invasion, which places Tom Mason (Noah Wyle), and his three sons, Hal (Drew Roy), Ben (Conner Jessup) and Matt (Maxim Knight) in a struggle to survive as they fight back against the aliens. After the attack, the aliens kidnap Ben. Determined to find his missing son, Tom joins 2nd Mass, a group of soldiers and civilians struggling against an occupying alien force. However, supplies are running low, and Tom must locate an old friend to equip his team, and ensure the human race will persevere!
Making its television debut next summer, the Steven Spielberg-produced series stars Noah Wyle, along with Moon Bloodgood as Anne Glass, a pediatrician who works with the surviving children to help them cope with the traumatic upheaval in their lives, and Will Patton plays a fierce leader of the resistance, Weaver.
