At his lowest, Lucas does something he can’t take back. Hell comes calling, offering him the opportunity to make things right. Demons escaping Hell are upsetting the balance of evil, and now Lucifer has recruited Lucas to send them back. It doesn’t matter in what era the demons escapeWorld War II, old-timey Hollywood, Vietnam, present dayhe must learn to fit in both the past and the present. Given new purpose, Lucas starts to rebuild himself and his life, even as he struggles at the human cost that comes with it.
The 6 issue series was announced today at WonderCon. LUCAS STAND is written by Sutter and Caitlin Kittredge with art by Jesús Hervás. The main cover art – pictured above – is by Lee Bermejo.
Sutter had previously been developing the LUCAS STAND concept as an FX original series. No word as to if that project will ever re-surface.
