Saturday afternoon hosted Dark Horse’s All-Ages: Comics are for Everyone! panel where the publisher announced two new comics: Bird Boy and a new Aw Yeah Comics! story.
Artist Annie Szabla has been creating comics since 2009 crafting her rich stories and incredible artwork. She is taking her acclaimed Bird Boy series and publishing it through Dark Horse with Bird Boy Volume 1: The Sword of Mali Mani. Scott Allie is editing the title. The comic engages with a young child who finds a mystical sword that he uses to escape a dangerous land of beasts. The series should captivate readers with a rich set of new mythology and beautiful art.
Finally for Dark Horse at New York Comic-Con 2015 is the announcement of more Aw Yeah Comics! from Franco (writer) and Art Baltazar (illustrator) with editing from Rachel Roberts. Art and Franco have been crafting these series for years, but this new title centers around Action Cat and is called (you guessed it) Aw Yeah Comics! Action Cat. The title teams the Cat back up with one of his greatest allies: Adventure Bug. What our heroes don’t know is that the Evil Cat is hiding behind-the-scenes.
Wow, did Dark Horse have a lot of announcements this week. What were some of your favorites?
