Set a few years after Supernatural: Origins, the story picks up with an 11-year-old Dean and a 7-year-old Sam traveling with their father, John. "Whereas the first series was more about John and his becoming a hunter, this one's much more of a dysfunctional-family story," explains writer Peter Johnson, who's also a co-executive producer onthe TV show. "We're really going to explore the differences between Sam and Dean in this one. Dean is becoming aware of what his dad's up to and we'll see him training and hunting a little bit, while John will start to key in on something different about Sam." ...Johnson says readers should expect "freakier monsters," including "some badass female villains and a big bad villain that may have something to do with the TV show." Some familiar faces, including fellow hunter Bobby, also show up.
Although Peter Johnson (who also wrote Origins) writes Rising Son, a new artist was used - Diego Olmos. The first issue was released on April 23, 2008. A new collection featuring all six issues of the Rising Son comic was released on April 29, 2009.
