Here's the cover by Paul Azaceta for the first issue of THE FOUNDATION published by Boom! Studios. It's a 5-issue series which I'm writing from a concept created by Kody Chamberlain and interior art by Chee.
The solicitation describes it thus:
History shows that in the 1500s, Nostradamus' three volumes of prophesies were best-sellers, making him a rich man. But what the world doesn't know is he took his vast treasure trove of riches and invested them in creating a foundation to prevent his prophesies from occurring. This secret team still functions today, using Nostradamus' published and unpublished tomes to predict threats to worldwide security! In the vein of The X-Files, but with a 24-like spin!
The first issue was slated to appear later this month (next week, I think) but just to keep you up to date, that's not going to happen. I just turned in the script for this issue on Monday, and I'm guessing that Chee hasn't drawn a single panel yet. Of course, this doesn't mean that you can't still pre-order it through your local comic book store.
