Dynamite Signs John Layman And Joe Eisma For Charlie's Angels Comic


Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce that the brilliant private detectives of Charlie's Angels classic TV series are coming to comics, courtesy of fan-favorite writer John Layman (Chew, Mars Attacks) and sensational artist Joe Eisma (Big Trouble in Little China, Faith). Based on Sony Pictures Television's high-kicking action classic television series, the new comic book series -- debuting in June 2018 -- will send the original Angels, Jill, Kelly, and Sabrina, on a globe-trotting adventure with fabulous 1970s flair. Charlie's Angels #1 will feature multiple cover variants, including one by the team of David Finch and Jimmy Reyes, as well as two different covers by series artist Eisma himself.

John Layman says, "Charlie's Angels wasn't a dark and gritty show; it was breezy fun set in an era that's inherently silly, so you better believe I'm going to embrace that wholeheartedly. I also plan on doing stuff that could never have been done on the show, given the limitations of a ‘70s TV budget. Comics aren't constrained like that, so this is going to be a 'bigger budget' Charlie's Angels, seeing the Angels in exotic locations, taking on cases that are bigger and more exciting than what we ever saw in the show. And I get to work with Joe Eisma, who is a pal and somebody I've always wanted to work with."

Editor Matt Idelson says, "I remember the Charlie's Angels classic TV series for two things: the fun goofiness that I was aware of, even at the age of six, and the fact that unlike most of the shows on TV at the time, the leads were all women. Getting to go back in time and revisit a show that, in a lot of ways, was ahead of the curve, yet had that flavor that all the shows then did, is a blast. Getting to work with John, who I've been pestering for years, is awesome. And getting to work with Joe, who I've learned is as nice a guy as his work is awesome, has already been a joy. The fun we're having on this book is going to be infectious for the reader, I think."

"Working on Charlie's Angels is a win-win all around for me. I get to work on a fantastic property with John Layman, someone whose insane scripts I've wanted to draw since forever. I love this era, and to get to draw an action series starring three beautiful ladies is a dream come true! I'm so grateful to Matt Idelson and the crew at Dynamite -- they've been the absolute best," says artist Joe Eisma. "Visually, my goal is to portray the Angels as strong and powerful, with the confidence and toughness to handle any dangerous situation. Each of them has their own specialty that they bring to the team, and I plan to define that through their body language and personalities. I'm also looking forward to drawing their snazzy 70s attire! I think fans are in for a treat with this comic book series! With John and I involved, you can expect a lot of action, drama and humor, with attention and care paid to getting the feel and characterizations of Charlie's Angels right."

The 1976 Charlie's Angels television series was created by Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts, with industry legend Aaron Spelling serving as Executive Producer for the show during its five-season run. The iconic series followed the crime-fighting adventures of three powerful women working in a Los Angeles private detective agency for the mysterious and unseen Charlie Townsend. The smash-hit series saw more than 100 episodes and became a cult hit for decades to come thanks to subsequent syndication and DVD distribution deals.
