When Joe Hill decided to bring his superpowered short story “The Cape” to IDW Comics, he enlisted the talents of co-writer Jason Ciaramella to adapt the original story and help expand its universe.
The first miniseries of “The Cape,” which followed the adventures of an ordinary loser as he used a cape to launch a murderous rampage, arrives in a hardcover collection from IDW Publishing on May 16, and the follow-up miniseries, “The Cape: 1969,” is slated to launch in July.
The new series will feature art by Nelson Daniel, who was the colorist on the first mini and illustrated IDW’s current “Road Rage” mini, adapting another short prose story by Joe Hill and Hill’s father, Stephen King.
