Dark Horse Comics has announced Wyrd, a new miniseries from writer Curt Pires and artist Antonio Fuso. The four-issue series follows Pitor Wyrd, a freelance detective who assists on cases that are strange or otherwise unexplainable. The series is colored by Stefano Simeone, and lettered by Micah Myers.
Curt Pires has previously written The Tomorrows and Pop for Dark Horse, in addition to work for Black Mask and Image. His most recent credit is a contribution to the Where We Live benefit anthology for victims of last year’s mass shooting in Las Vegas. Antonio Fuso has done work for multiple publishers including IDW, Titan, 2000AD, and Marvel Comics. Wyrd will be his first Dark Horse work.
Check out the two covers to Wyrd #1 – the main cover by Fuso and a variant by Jeff Lemire – as well as the full press release on the series below. Look for Wyrd #1 to hit stores in January 2019.
MILWAUKIE, Ore., (October 12, 2018)—There are some cases that are simply too weird for law enforcement to solve. Enter Pitor Wyrd, an un-aging, invincible detective with a penchant for the strange who steps in to assist…for a fee. Between a botched attempt at recreating a certain US supersolider, a monster roaming the countryside, and a trail of bodies, there is no case too big, too small, or too weird.
Writer Curt Pires (The Fiction, The Forevers, Pop, The Tomorrows) joins forces with artist Antonio Fuso (G.I. Joe: Cobra, James Bond, The Girl Who Played with Fire) for Wyrd, a four-issue comics series that’s James Bond meets The X Files. The series is colored by Stefano Simeone and features variant covers by Jeff Lemire (Black Hammer), Rafael Albuquerque (Neil Gaiman’s A Study in Emerald), Gabriele Dell’Otto (X-23), and Danijel Zezelj (Starve).
Wyrd #1 (of four) goes on sale January 30, 2019, and is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.
