It’s official. Samurai Jack, my favorite cartoon samurai, returns this Halloween—this time in comic book form.

Here’s a blurb that I found at Cartoon Brew:

Fans of Cartoon Network’s Samurai Jack are finally being tossed a bone. Nine years after the series finale of Genndy Tartakovsky’s show, IDW Publishing has announced a new comic book featuring the continuing adventures of Jack, the dimensionally displaced warrior and his epic quest to destroy the wicked overlord Aku.

Written by Jim Zub(Skullkickers) and illustrated byAndy Suriano, the new comic will pick up where the series left off, beginning with a five-issue storyline calledRope of Eons. Suriano, who designed characters for the show, reflected on returning to the popular character via press release: “Returning to Samurai Jack is such a personal experience and labor of love for me. It’s like stepping through a time portal back to characters I know as friends and a world that really launched my animation career.”

The first issue of Samurai Jack, which will begin in October, will feature a variant cover by show creator Genndy Tartakovsky, as well as one by Rob Guillory (Chew).

Are you ready for Samurai Jack’s return in comic book form?
