IDW Readies for Jack Bauer’s Return

Jack Bauer is coming back to TV in the new event series “24: Live Another Day,” set to premiere May 5 on Fox, and IDW and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products are preparing for his homecoming with an all-new comic book series that will pick up where the final season of the television show left off.

The new comic books will debut in April and offer an expansive look at the events leading up to “24: Live Another Day.”

“‘24’ was one of IDW’s earliest successes with licensed comics, and the show’s stature has grown immensely since then,” says Greg Goldstein, president and chief operating officer, IDW. “Returning to the world of ‘24’ in comics, in conjunction with this highly anticipated return to TV, makes perfect sense.”
