Meet Your Next Hero… Lou the Cat in Strayed

In Dark Horse’s latest series, Strayed, life is bleak. A military-industrial complex reigns over all humanity and is actively destroying distant alien worlds. But there is hope for the galaxy yet and luckily, this hero has nine lives!

The fate of the universe rests in the paws of Lou, an astral-projecting cat and his loving owner Kiara. Desperate to preserve the well-being of billions, their revolt against the status quo is a battle for love, friendship, and the soul of humanity, all brought to you from psychedelic space!

Strayed comes to you from the minds of writer and first-time comics creator Carlos Giffoni, artist and colorist Juan Doe, and letterer Matt Krotzer. They are joined by a host of talented variant cover artists: Dustin Ngyuen, Jim Mahfood, Alexis Ziritt, Matteo Scalera, and Sanford Greene.

Strayed #1 (of 5) arrives in comic shops August 14th.

Mark Millar, Image, and Netflix announce Space Bandits featuring Limited Edition Covers

Netflix and Mark Millar have announced their latest project created in-house, Space Bandits—a female led sci-fi story, described by Millar as a female Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid set in space with a massive and exciting cast of characters.

Superstar Artist Matteo Scalera will illustrate the comic-book translation of this original Netflix property, published by Image Comics.

In Space Bandits, Thena Khole and Cody Blue are among the universe’s most wanted felons. Each the leader of their own criminal operations, they run heists across the galaxies—hopping from ship to ship to fleece everyone inside. But when both women are betrayed by their treacherous crews, the bandits only have one thing on their minds: REVENGE.

As a special bonus, and available to order at the same time, is a limited edition series of Space Bandits Legends Covers, featuring Miller’s all-time favorite comic-book artists—artists Miller was obsessed with in high school, and whom he has wanted to work with for years. 

The first of these five very limited edition covers will be illustrated by comic-book legend Howard Chaykin, and will retail for the same price as a comic-book cost when Mark was in high school… just 75 cents. All other covers will retail at the regular $3.99 price.

Space Bandits #1 will be available in stores on Wednesday, July 3. The final order cutoff deadline is June 10.

ECCC 2019: Dark Horse Delivers More Critical Role with Comics, Collections, and Art Books

Dark Horse Comics and Critical Role have announced three new projects set to release in 2019. Based on epic tales from the world of Exandria, these new comics, art books and more will explore this universe in new and original ways! The most popular digital tabletop game in the world, Critical Role is live-streamed every week and set in Exandria. In each episode, veteran voice actor and Game Master Matthew Mercer leads his nerdy ass and wildly entertaining friends (also fellow voice actors!) on a thrill ride of turmoil and adventure. The cast includes Matthew Mercer (Overwatch, Final Fantasy XV, Fallout 4), Travis Willingham (Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers Assemble, The Legend of Korra), Marisha Ray (Star Wars: Battlefront, Batgirl: Spoiled, Metal Gear: Survive), Taliesin Jaffe (Street Fighter, World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XIV), Ashley Johnson (Blindspot, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teen Titans Go!), Sam Riegel (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, One Punch Man, The Amazing Spiderman), Liam O’Brien (Star Wars Rebels, Transformers: Robots in Disguise, Wolverine and the X-Men), and Laura Bailey (Dragon Ball Z, Fullmetal Alchemist, Gears of War 4).

On July 10, 2019, Dark Horse and Critical Role will release Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins series II #1, which finds the unlikely heroes of Vox Machina back in action-packed yet absurdly entertaining adventures! The six-issue series will be available through Dark Horse Digital and through retail stores and continues to follow the origin stories of engaging characters, material hinted at but not fully disclosed in the live-stream. From award-nominated writer Jody Houser and first series artist Olivia Samson, with colorist MSASSYK and letterer Ariana Maher comes Critical Role: Vox Machina Originsseries II, the highly anticipated sequel to Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins series I. The beautiful first issue cover is by artist Fiona Staples. The series will be collected into a trade paperback collection in summer 2020. 

In Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins series II, familiar faces from Critical Role’s smash-hit first campaign return as their escapades in Stilben lead them towards their next adventure—and a dire threat to Grog Strongjaw, the goliath barbarian, when he goes missing in the night. Tracking him down will see the party lose one member, gain another, and reveal parts of Grog’s secret past. But first, his friends have to actually find him.

Due to popular demand, Dark Horse and Critical Role will also release a trade paperback collection of Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins series I on October 15, 2019! Writers Matthew Mercer and Matthew Colville team with artist extraordinaire Olivia Samson and colorist and letterer Chris Northrop to tell the story of how Vox Machina first met.
