Devil’s Due sent out a press release earlier this week about Heroes star Milo Ventimiglia being on hand this weekend at the New York Comic Con to announce a new project. Tonight, Variety reports that the project is called Rest, a comic book miniseries featuring a character that looks like Ventimiglia:
The four issues in the series will revolve around the dangers of staying awake as a man is drawn into a conspiracy between a malevolent pharmaceutical company and the U.S. government.
The design of the main character will be inspired by Ventimiglia’s likeness.
Mark Powers, who penned the comicbook “Drafted” and edited “X-Men,” will write the issues based on a story by Mike O’Sullivan.
Ventimiglia is scheduled to not only be at the Devil’s Due panel on Saturday, but will also be signing autographs at their booth at various times throughout the show.
