A news byte from C2E2: Dark Horse Presents, the long running anthology, will be back in a slimmer format but with some added content heft, including a new “Big Guy & Rusty” story by Frank Miller and Geof Darrow. Previous issues of the long running anthology had been 80 pages but a new 48 page format will be a bit easier to put out, said Dark Horse publisher MIke Richardson.
Rusty and the Big Guy is a comics series from 1995 about a young boy with a giant robot, that classic set up. It was turned into a Saturday morning cartoon for Fox, and ran for a whole season. That’s right, THERE WAS A FRANK MILLER SATURDAY MORNING CARTOON SHOW IN THE 90S. ANd yuo wonder why the 90s were the apogee of the Golden Age of human civilization.
The new story is just a “simple thing” Darrow told Comic Book Resources, which Miller is dialoging.
