Dark Horse and Berger Books have announced a new addition to their stable of titles with She Could Fly. Written by Halt and Catch Fire co-creator Christopher Cantwell and featuring art by Martín Morazzo and Miroslav Mrva, She Could Fly is a four-issue miniseries that follows one teenage girl’s search for answers after the death of a mysterious flying woman.
She Could Fly is the fifth series being published under the Berger Books imprint, and the first new title announced since Karen Berger launched the imprint in July of 2017. While the writers of the line’s four previous series are all experienced comic scribes, this will be Cantwell’s first foray into the medium, though he is joined by Marvel and Image veterans Morazzo and Mrva – and, of course, the guiding hand of Berger.
Check out the cover to the first issue and a pair of preview pages, along with the full press release, below, and look for She Could Fly #1 to descend into stores in July.

Official Press Release
MILWAUKIE, Ore., (April 3, 2018)—Today, Dark Horse is pleased to reveal the next comics series installment in the Berger Books imprint! Writer Christopher Cantwell, co-creator/showrunner of AMC’s critically acclaimed Halt and Catch Fire, and artist Martín Morazzo (Nighthawk, Elektra, Ice Cream Man) will unite to tell the strange and poignant tale of the Flying Woman in She Could Fly. They are joined by Miroslav Mrva on color.
The extraordinary story of She Could Fly begins in Chicago, when an unknown woman, flying at speeds of 120 miles per hour and at heights reaching 2,000 feet, suddenly dies in a fiery explosion mid-air.
No one knows who she was, how she flew, or why. Some think it was a government program. Some think it was foreign surveillance. Some think it was all fake. Some are even convinced that it was a religious, transcendent experience happening on earth.
Luna Brewster, a disturbed 15-year-old girl becomes obsessed with learning everything about her while rumors and conspiracy theories roil. Will cracking the secrets of the Flying Woman’s inner life lead to the liberation from her own troubled mind?
The first issue of She Could Fly contains 32-pages of story and retails for $4.99. She Could Fly #1 goes on sale July 11, 2018, and is available for preorder at your local comic shop.
