This was alluded to in our 2011 Survey, but now it’s official: the great Peter Bagge has a new series coming out from Dark Horse in April. Called RESET, it’s about a man who has a second chance at living his life. Will it get better or worse?
AWESOME BONUS SAUCE: Variant covers by Matt Kindt!
Dark Horse Comics is pleased to announce a brand-new project from multiple Harvey and Eagle Award winner Peter Bagge (Apocalypse Nerd): Reset!
If you could relive major events in your life, would you take a stab at making things better—and would your best attempts only make things worse? Or would you use your second chance to put your most twisted, perverted fantasies in motion? These are questions washed-up actor and comedian Guy Krause asks himself after he signs up to be the main research subject for a virtual-reality experiment.
“I originally envisioned Reset mostly taking place in the virtual fantasy world of protagonist Guy Krause’s imagination, but soon discovered that the events occurring simultaneously in his real life were far more interesting, and so I wound up focusing more on that instead. I guess truth is stranger than fiction—and that’s why I’m generally not a fantasy writer!” says Peter Bagge.
In addition, fellow Dark Horse Originals creator Matt Kindt (3 Story) will be drawing the exclusive variant cover for issue #1.
Reset #1 is on sale April 18, 2012!
