Preview: Dan the Unharmable #1 From David Lapham

In May Avatar is set to debut Dan The Unharmable, a new series from writer David Lapham (Stray Bullets, Crossed) and artist Rafael Ortiz. The series follows a carefree amnesiac whose happily low standard of living is supported by dangerous odd jobs – a type he’s uniquely suited for, since he cannot be injured or feel pain. The invulnerable protagonist is drawn into a modern Hollywood murder mystery involving an old flame and their orphaned kids. Check the wacky preview below. Read on for the skinny…

dan “I had this idea about a guy who just couldn’t be hurt. Bullets, fire, drowning, whatever… nothing can hurt him. But what if that extended to the psychological? Dan doesn’t get riled up if you call him any horrible thing that you can imagine,” says Lapham. “So extending from that, I entered a situation that Dan can’t ignore. Four orphaned kids, their mother brutally murdered in the style of a classic Hollywood murder – even the most hardened man couldn’t ignore this.”
