Taking place 8 years after the final 8th season of 24, 24: Live Another Day premieres on FOX May 5, 2014. If you can’t wait until May to get your Jack Bauer fix, IDW Publishing is launching an official prequel comic to Live Another Day titled 24: Underground.

24: Underground will pick up right where season 8 of 24 left off. It will be written by Ed Brisson, who is also currently scribing the Sons of Anarchy comics for BOOM! Studios, and will be drawn by Michael Gaydos (Alias, Manhunter). In response to this creative team up, editor Denton J. Tipton said the following:

Ed burst onto the comics scene with the sci-fi thriller Comeback, which was heavy on plot and adventure, a style that fits nicely with an established property such as 24. We’ve paired the rising star with veteran artist Michael Gaydos, whose draftsmanship and storytelling skills are second to none. Buckle up for a high-octane tale of Jack Bauer’s missing years!

24: Underground is set to debut this April 2014 before the May premiere of 24: Live Another Day. Are you excited to see Kiefer Sutherland return as Jack Bauer in 24: Live Another Day? Do you plan on giving 24: Underground a read before the mini-series premieres? Let us know in the comments.
