FOR EMERALD CITY COMIC CON: Dark Horse Comics is happy to announce that Rat Queens Eisner Award-nominated writer Kurtis Wiebe is bringing his latest creator-owned series to readers this summer with the arrival of Bounty #1.
This ongoing series sees Wiebe join forces with pop-comic sensation Mindy Lee to present a femme-fatale sci-fi caper of epic proportions!
“Bounty is strongly my voice and one of my favourite comics I’ve ever written,” says Wiebe. “While it’s about sisters who hunt criminals in the future, it is ultimately about the nature of family and the trust we share with those closest to us. With a little bit of action and romance on the side. What Mindy Lee is doing with the art is unlike anything I’ve seen in comics before.”
The Gadflies were the most wanted criminals in the galaxy. Over the years, they’d stolen from the galaxy’s most evil corporations and redistributed their ill-gotten gains to the less fortunate. Doing so earned them a reputation as the roughest outlaws in the universe—with a bounty to match! Now, with the law closing in on them, the Gadflies are forced to abandon their bandit personas in favor of a new career as bounty hunters . . . ’cause if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em—then rob ’em for all they’re worth!
It’s Rat Queens meets Firefly!
Bounty #1 debuts on July 6 and retails for $3.99. Preorder a copy today at your local comic shop.
