SKYMAN #1-4 (Joshua hale Fialkov / Manuel Garcia)

Après un combat désastreux contre Captain Midnight, un Skyman complétement bourré tue malencontreusement un badaud. Le fardeau du costume échoue alors au Sgt. Eric Reid de l’Air Force. « Le programme voulait une arme, il n’aura qu’un super-héros. »

C’est le point de départ de la mini-série Skyman du scénariste Joshua Hale Fialkov (Ultimate FF) et du dessinateur Manuel Garcia. Sortie du premier numéro (sur les quatre prévus) en janvier 2014.

As announced at Rose City Comic Con, Dark Horse will unleash its latest superhero early next year! Joshua Hale Fialkov (Tumor), Eisner nominee and writer of the Emmy-nominated animated film Afro Samurai: Resurrection, is set to pen a brand-new series from the pages of Captain Midnight—Skyman!

Skyman is a four-issue miniseries with pencils by Manuel Garcia and inks by Javier Bergantiño Menor (a.k.a. Bit). Issue #1 features regular and variant covers by Freddie Williams II and Dan Scott!

“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,” states Fialkov, referring to the writers of Captain Midnight and Brain Boy, two superhero series that are closely entwined with Skyman.

After an embarrassing defeat at the hands of Captain Midnight, a drunken Skyman accidentally kills an innocent man! Turns out he’s not only an overly patriotic zealot; he’s also a dangerous PR nightmare. Needing a new face for their initiative ASAP, the Skyman Program turns to US Air Force Captain Eric Reid: a wounded veteran on the ropes, looking for a new lease on life. Reid must fight off his personal demons to have any chance of surviving the potentially deadly initiation.

When the Skyman Program plummets, Albright Industries brings in a new hero to make it soar!

Catch Skyman’s first appearance in Captain Midnight #4, October 30th!
