Following the loss of the Star Wars license, Dark Horse Comics descends swiftly into madness.
Source: Press Release
It was only a few weeks ago that Marvel Comics announced that they would be taking over the license to produce Star Wars comic books in 2015, ending a decades long relationship between the franchise and Dark Horse Comics. Despite releasing a statement claiming they were okay, it seems that Dark Horse has been taking things poorly, as they just sent us a teaser today announcing a Twitter press conference with a fictional character, the titular superheroine in their new series, Furious, from Bryan J.L. Glass and Victor Santos (of Mice Templar fame).
Wow. Are you okay, Dark Horse? We agree that Furious looks like a cool book with an interesting premise:
Staring into a fractured mirror of her life, the world’s first superhero, Furious, seeks to atone for her past sins by doling out rage-fueled justice! But the spotlight of our celebrity-obsessed media threatens to undo her noblest efforts and expose her true identity before she can achieve redemption.
But you know that she's not real and can't tweet, right? Right? Oh, Dark Horse.
Readers, you should probably check up on the hashtag #whoisfurious on January 27th, starting at 7PM Eastern time, you know, just to make sure Dark Horse is doing alright.
And just to show them that you care, make sure to pick up the first issue of Furious when it hits stores on January 29th.
We're here for you, Dark Horse. There there.
