Esme Ford Returns in New Series ‘The Escort’

Esme Ford Returns in New Series 'The Escort'

November 28, 2016 – Denver, CO — After the smashing success of Barrens: Chapter One, Project-Nerd Publishing will bring back Esme Ford in the new series, The Escort.

Audiences have been waiting for the follow up to Barrens, Project-Nerd Publishing’s first title to go to second print on two different covers, but the project came to a halt after Chapter One. With the creative team moving on to other projects, it left the door open for Esme Ford to return in a different capacity.

Set in the not too distant future, The Escort follows Esme Ford as she proves to be the best guide through the barrens as she transports goods and people between the few remaining fortified cities left in the world. Ford will open up a brand new mission with the debut issue of The Escort in January 2017.

The Escort is written by Esme Ford creator and Project-Nerd Publishing Founder, Iggy Michniacki, and will feature the pencils and inks of J.C. Grande (Johnny Monster, Necessary Evil) and colors from Esteban Salinas (Deviant Apple Studios). Erin Lei will return as Esme Ford for a cosplay cover variant of the first issue with Salinas also creating the series’ cover art.

Set to debut early next year, The Escort joins a revamped lineup for Project-Nerd Publishing that will release quarterly with specials debuting at the company’s convention stops across the country.
