DC Comics has released a solicitation for a Chase collection.

JH Williams III - who illustrated the short-lived title alongside writer D Curtis Johnson - highlighted the long-awaited graphic novel on his blog.

The series focused on the adventures of Cameron Chase, a cynical operative for the Department of Extranormal Operations.

"At last we get to have a trade collection on the full Chase material that I had any involvement in, available for pre-order now," said Williams.

"It's going to be pretty comprehensive, featuring the full prematurely cancelled series and some short stories. This is just in time for people to get caught up in the origins of Cameron Chase and the DEO, as these ideas will have relevance to other work.

"This was early work by me (along with other cohorts), and I'm still proud of it today. This was also my first foray into writing my own series, along with co-writer D Curtis Johnson, who sorely needs to return. His talents were tremendous and comics could use his mind again."

Chase was released in 1998 among various other new and experimental DC titles including Aztek: The Ultimate Man, Young Heroes in Love and Hourman, but was cancelled after ten issues.

"Ironically, as we were getting chopped, a groundswell buzz was happening around what we were doing, but unfortunately not in time to save the series," said Williams.

Williams is illustrating and co-writing Batwoman from September as part of DC's 52 new titles.

Chase will be released on December 21.
