Dynamite Brings Looking For a Group from the Web to Print in April
Dynamite Entertainment has announced that Looking For Group, the hilarious fantasy-themed webcomic with a readership of millions, will be released as an ongoing comic book series, representing all strips from the very beginning. Written by Ryan Sohmer and illustrated by Lar deSouza, Hawk, Ryan Dunlavey, and Ed Ryzowski, the upcoming Looking For Group series includes bonus stories from the Non-Playable Character and Tiny Dick Adventures spin-off series. The debut issue will be released in April 2015, featuring brand new cover editions by industry veteran Ty Templeton and Becky Dreisdadt.
Looking For Group follows the adventures of Cale’Anon the elf and Richard the undead warlock, as well as their companions, through Fantasy, Pop Culture, and Gaming tropes, set in a reality and time unlike our own. It’s a place where the eating of small children is not necessarily frowned upon; where beings of extraordinary power can destroy entire villages with only “because I could” as an excuse; where magic and adventure are as commonplace as setting fire to, and then reanimating, a chipmunk into a skeletal minion (it happens more than you’d think); and an epic journey can begin by an accident of fate.
Since its launch on November 26, 2006, Looking For Group has garnered significant media and industry attention and won the 2008 Shuster Award for “Outstanding Canadian Web Comics Creators.” The webcomic is read by millions online every week, along with its two spinoff comics Non-Playable Character and Tiny Dick Adventures, both of which launched to rave reviews in 2014.
Looking For Group #1 will be slated for release in April.
