Michael Shanks aka Daniel Jackson To Have Very Own Comic

Boom! Studios has announced a comic starring Stargate character Daniel Jackson.

Writer Doug Murray and artist John Watson envision the project as a modern homage to the scientist/soldier characters common in sci-fi and horror films of the ’50s and ’60s.

“I wanted to put Daniel Jackson in a situation where he had to rely upon his own smarts and capabilities to solve an age-old problem while dodging many kinds of dangers,” said Murray.

“Too often in the TV series, he has to protect his teammates or, in other circumstances, rely on them to protect him. In this story, he is his own protection!”

Daniel Jackson first appeared in the Stargate movie before becoming a continuing character in the long-running Stargate: SG1 television show.

Stargate: Daniel Jackson #1 will be released in June.
