With smash hits like Edison Rex and Amelia Cole, MonkeyBrain Comics and IDW Publishing have established a new precedent for comics moving from digital to print. After success being serialized digitally, these great titles get handsome collections, meant for the traditional comic and book markets. The next title to find a whole new audience in print will be Artful Daggers: Fifty Years Later, scheduled to hit shelves in March 2014.
Created by Sean E. Williams, Adam P. Knave and Andrew Losq, with lettering by FrankCvetkovic, Artful Daggers is a story of greed, betrayal, and ultimately, corruption. Fifty years after a time-traveler brings science and technology to the medieval ages, corporations have replaced kingdoms, and the future teeters on a bleak precipice. Agents and assassins, hired for their specialties by the rivaling companies, stem the flow of information with the flow of blood. But the current system can’t hold, and the balance of power is shifting…
The relationship between digital and print comics moves into the future, IDW and MonkeyBrain remain at the forefront, releasing quality title after quality title, and Artful Daggers is no exception!
