Exclusive: Dark Horse Books Presents Mœbius Library: The Major in 2024

Arriving for the first time in English, Dark Horse Books presents Mœbius Library: The Major. This latest volume in the Mœbius Library series toys with one of its most famous characters. Mœbius Library: The Major features writing and art by legendary creator Jean “Mœbius” Giraud, translation by Diana Schutz, and lettering by Adam Pruett.

The Major is a psychedelic, sequential romp created by Mœbius between 1997 and 2009, following a production principle that embraces graphic spontaneity and improvisation. The lead character of this pseudo-story, Major Grubert, evolves in a humorous yet philosophical manner, echoing how Mœbius’ creations are treated in the Inside Mœbius series.

Join the Major on his last trip to the nebula of The Airtight Garage, where Mœbius rules as the playful Trickster of legend. What begins as a comical jaunt into unusually profound philosophical questions regarding the nature of existence, eventually winds up as a penetrating examination of the relationship between the author and his creation, the latter of whom must necessarily suffer at the heartless whim of his creator, despite the Major’s passionate desire for real life—and even freedom—beyond these comics!

The Mœbius Library: The Major hardcover will arrive in bookstores February 6, 2024 and in comic shops February 7, 2024. The 184-page volume, measuring 8.375 x 10.875”, is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and at your local comic book shop and bookstore and will retail for $39.99.

The unstoppable force of the Leviathan will collide with the immovable object of the world’s most powerful superheroes in an unflinching tale of ultimate horror and ultimate sacrifice.

Dark Horse and T-Pub partner to publish The Many Deaths of Barnaby James

Dark Horse Books presents The Many Deaths of Barnaby James, the first graphic novel to be published from a new partnership with T-Pub. The gothic fantasy was written by Brian Nathanson and Neil Gibson, illustrated by Piotr Kowalski, colored by Brad Simpson, and lettered and designed by Saida Temofonte.

Every year, the circus comes to town. However, “The Black Top” isn’t like any circus you’ve seen before—its performers were once dead. They’ve been resurrected by their fearsome ringmaster, Azlon, who commands that they do his bidding. Among them, Barnaby James, a young gravedigger, requests that Azlon resurrect the love of his (former) life, Delilah. Time and time again, his pleas are rejected. Frustrated, Barnaby decides to steal Azlon’s magic wand and bring back Delilah himself. On his desperate journey to find her, Barnaby must overcome murderers, cannibals and sex slavers–not to mention the full fury of Azlon–or he might just find himself dead… again.

Phillip Kobylanski, President of Gale Anne Hurd’s Valhalla Entertainment (“The Walking Dead,” The Youtube Effect), shepherded the development of the novel with T-Pub. Valhalla has also partnered with Dark Horse on an adaptation of the novel that will bring the story to the screen.
