Dark Horse Announces ‘Skyman’ Miniseries From Joshua Hale Fialkov [Preview]

 

Continuing Dark Horse’s recent push to expand its super hero properties, at this weekend’s Rose City Comic Con the publisher announced Skyman, a new four issue miniseries written by Joshua Hale Fialkov and illustrated by Manuel Garcia and Javier Bergantiño Menor, a.k.a. Bit.

 

Spinning out of the pages of Captain Midnight –  the recently revitalized franchise that began as a 1940′s radio serial — Skyman focuses on the titular character, after an embarrassing defeat at the hands of Captain Midnight, accidentally killing an innocent man while intoxicated. This leads to the Skyman Program needing a new face for their initiative, which they find in US Air Force Captain Eric Reid, a wounded and frustrated veteran seeking a new lease on life.

In a press release, Fialkov spoke about the opportunity to write a character like Skyman: “So honored to be a part of a line of comics that seek to bring back the classic feel of superheroes but in a thoroughly modern way. Plus, working alongside my buddies Josh Williamson and Fred Van Lente is a true treat,” said Fialkov, referencing the writers of Captain Midnight and Brain Boy, the two series that take place in the same universe as Skyman.

Skyman’s first appearance will be in Captain Midnight #4 on October 30, with Skyman #1 — featuring regular and variant covers by Freddie Williams II and Dan Scott — arriving in stores January 15.
