Warren Ellis has set sail for AfterShock Comics.

An English writer known for TransmetropolitanThe AuthorityRed and the Extremis storyline in Iron Man comics, Ellis will join artist Phil Hester and colorist Mike Spicer on Shipwreck, a six-issue miniseries that will debut Oct. 5.

Ellis previously worked with AfterShock CCO Joe Pruett at Caliber Press, making the transition an easy one.

Shipwreck will feature Dr. Jonathan Shipwright, the sole survivor of a strange and secret shipwreck that leaves him lost and trapped on an “endless road.”
