This weekend at Emerald City Comiccon Dark Horse announced a new series from writer Curt Pires and artist Jason Copland. Pires work on “Theremin” has been nothing short of phenomenal. His experimentation with style, paneling, and storytelling has proven to be an outright success subverting expectations with every step of the way. While Copland’s art has been featured in some of the best books around like Daredevil, Robocop, and his own Kill All Monsters. Now these two men are taking to Dark Horse to launch their own series about manufactured pop stars. Hit the jump for all the details.
From Dark Horse:
What if the world’s pop stars and celebrities were literally products, grown by the world’s wealthiest (and most depraved) minds—and one of them escaped? Dark Horse presents the new four-issue miniseries Pop!
Smart and savage! Sexy and scathing! Writer Curt Pires (Theremin, LP) and artist Jason Copland (Daredevil, RoboCop, Kill All Monsters) deliver a series that’s original, exciting, and sure to draw attention!
As unique as it is entertaining, Pop is a white-knuckled thrill ride through the marketing-mastered, technologically tethered tragicomedy we call life.
Pop #1 is on comic shelves August 27! Preorder your copy today!
