Writer Rob Williams spoke to CBR News about the inspiration for his new "2000 AD" serial, a sequel to "The Grievous Journey of Ichabod Azrael" with artists Dom Reardon, plus

Ichabod Azrael has had a rough couple of lifetimes. After being shot down in the streets of a desert town by a demon-possessed child, the outlaw stormed his way across the afterlife, killing demons and angels alike in order to get back to the land of the living and reunite with his one true love. Along the way, he discovered that he may have been reincarnated in to other lives and that nothing during his lifetime was how it seemed.


"The Grievous Journey of Ichabod Azrael (and the Dead Left in His Wake," by fan-favorite writer Rob Williams ("Ghost Rider"), artist Dom Reardon and colorist Pete Doherty, debuted last year in British comic anthology "2000 AD" and concluded with all the main characters being tossed about in the dissolving barrier between life and death. The second series, entitled "Manhunt," begins in "2000 AD" prog 1789 this June.

Williams spoke to CBR News about returning to the supernatural western series, working with artists Dom Reardon ("Caballistics Inc.") and Pete Doherty ("Flex Mentallo"), and teased an upcoming arc of "Low Life," his popular Judge Dredd spinoff with artist D'Israeli.

I don't want to say too much about "Low Life: Saudade" for fear of spoilers but it's one of the most ambitious things I've been involved with. There's definitely more to it than first appears on the surface and, hopefully, it should provide a pretty major shock for "2000 AD" readers at its end.

"The Grievous Journey ofIchabodAzraelII: Manhunt" by Rob Williams, Dom Reardon and Pete Doherty begins in "2000 AD" prog 1789, on sale in the UK on June 27 and in North America on July 11. Available world-wide digitally at 2000adonline.com>a? on June 29.
