Last year Grant Morrison announced an all-new project called Annihilator, and today Legendary Comics is putting a visual to the concept by revealing Frazer Irving’s cover for Issue #1.
Below is the synopsis of Morrison’s limited series. Be on the lookout for more information on Annihilator soon, including the release date.
Hellraising screenwriter Ray Spass has one last chance to restore himself to former glory as he struggles to write a new studio tent-pole movie, Annihilator. The film centers around the adventures of Max Nomax, a sci-fi antihero caught in an epic struggle against the authoritarian artificial life form Vada and its chief assassin, Jet Makro.
But when Max Nomax appears in real life, Ray thinks it’s a side effect of the brain tumor he was recently diagnosed with. Despite all logic, Nomax is real, having escaped from an impossible prison with no memory. Ray’s tumor is the key—it contains all of Nomax’s adventures, downloaded into Ray’s head before Nomax escaped.
Ray needs to finish his screenplay in order to get the information out of his head and shrink the tumor. Nomax needs Ray to finish his screenplay so he can remember who he is, what ultimate crime he has committed, and how to defeat Vada and save the universe from annihilation – if the unstoppable Jet Makro doesn’t reach Nomax and Ray first.
