New York Comic Con is underway, and Dark Horse has kicked things off by announcing a new creator owned mini-series by superstar creator Greg Rucka with art by Toni Fejzula. Here's a short description of the comic from CBR:
"A beautiful girl wakes up in an abandoned subway station with no memory of how she got there. When men try to hurt her . . . they wind up dead. Where did she come from? And what is she capable of?"
"I wanted to express the feeling of vulnerability creators experience after being exploited and bullied by Big Two comics publishers," Rucka explained in an interview with The Outhouse we had to make up because Dark Horse already had all his slots booked up by more important websites. "That image on the cover of Veil #1? That's how I felt after being driven off of Batwoman and The Punisher. It happens to all creators eventually, if they work for Marvel or DC for too long. I found J.H. Williams III naked and emaciated on a street corner in Manhattan just last week. I bought him a sandwich."
"And just like men mysteriously end up dead when they screw with Veil, who I'm guessing is the protaganist of the comic, but don't really know for sure because I'm only a fictional version of Greg Rucka," Rucka continued, "Big Two publishers will pay for what they've done when I produce quality creator-owned comics without the limits imposed by cross-branding marketing synergy."
Veil debuts on March 5. We'll have more info when Dark Horse bothers to send us a press release.
