Rough Riders: Riders on the Storm #1 released

Today sees the release of Rough Riders: Riders on the Storm #1, which kicks off the second Rough Riders story arc by Adam Glass. Artist Patrick Olliffe shared a terrific Houdini preview page on his Facebook page (below).

Great jumping on point! Three years have passed since the Rough Riders' last adventure, but when an assassin's bullet takes President William McKinley's life, Vice President Theodore Roosevelt is thrust into the role of Commander in Chief. As a country mourns the loss of their leader, Roosevelt believes that the assassin is part of a bigger conspiracy, one whose tentacles reach back to Europe and whose intentions are to destroy humanity through world- wide ANARCHY. 
To stop them, Roosevelt must convince Harry Houdini, Jack Johnson, Thomas Edison and a surprisingly very alive Annie Oakley to band together again. But time has strained the bonds that once united them and the ideologies of their enemies may have already seeped into one of their own. Welcome to ROUGH RIDERS: RIDERS ON THE STORM.

As you can see below, this first issue comes in a four variant covers, including a great cover showing Houdini trapped under ice.

Visit Aftershock Comics for more on the series. Issue #2 is due out March 29.
