Margaret Atwood and Ken Steacy Launch New Comic ‘War Bears’ at Dark Horse

Posted by March 26, 2018 Comment

Dark Horse is getting a jump on their C2E2 announcements this year. Though the convention doesn’t start until April 6th, the publisher has sent out a press release labeled “C2E2” announcing a brand-new comic from Margaret Atwood and artist Ken Steacy. Called War Bears, the new comic is a historical fiction story set in the Golden Age of comics. From the press release:

War Bears follows comic book creator Al Zurakowski, who dreams of making it big in the early world of Canadian comics publishing. Al creates Oursonette, a fictional Nazi-fighting superheroine, at the peak of World War II. This three-issue miniseries explores the early days of comics in Toronto, a brutal war that greatly strains Al personally and professionally, and how the rise of post-war American comics put an end to his dreams.

War Bears #1 will cost $4.99 and hits stores on September 5.

In the same press release, Dark Horse also advertised The Complete Angel Catbird, hitting stores on October 3 and collecting three volumes of the comic by Atwood, Johnnie Christmas, and Tamra Bonvillain. That 320 page collection will retail for $24.99.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
