The Pretender Returning in Novels and Comics

Posted by at 4:18 pm on September 22, 2013


The Pretender had a four season run in the late 1990s on NBC.  The show they us watch the adventures of Jarod, a master of disguise who could also master any skill . He was The Pretender, and his sci-fi thriller story gained a following, as many seem to do, even larger when it went off the air.  Now after a pair of TV movies extended Jarod’s story, we learned at SDCC this year the exploits of Jarod would be returning, by way of novels and graphic novels alike.

The show creators Steven Mitchell and Craig Van Sickle will handle the novels themselves (the first, Rebirth will hit stores October 7, 2013), they announced Jenna Busch,  one of the contributors to the popular Womanthology comic book with all female creators, would be writing the story for The Pretender: The Centre Chronicles. They say this is just the beginning, as they create “the Centre world,” and plan to continue to expand that world and mythos in multiple media.

The story starts with a six-issue arc (that will then be collected into a hardcover), and it features an all-new, in-continuity story that takes place before the TV show.
