Banking on the success of the Supernatural: Origins comic series from Wildstorm (DC Comics), Peter Johnson (co executive producer of the TV show) has decided to dial up the Winchester boys again for a new set of adventures. Starting April 23rd, Wildstrom will publish a new six-issue miniseries call Supernatural: Rising Son. This series picks up a few years after Origins takes place. John is now training 11-year-old Dean to hunt and discovering some of seven-year-old Sam’s uniqueness.
Peter describes this arc as a dysfunctional-family story whereas Origins explored John’s rise and development as a hunter. At 11, Dean starts to discover that his dad is more than a dad – he’s a hunter of evil. If you thought your family was dysfunctional, I bet after checking in with the Winchesters your perception will change.
The Winchester boys are back and you know what that means — fire/brimstone adventure. Hang on and enjoy the ride!
