Dark Horse Comics’ newest superhero pops in to an adventure that slips between dimensions.
Scott Travers’s special suit lets him move through our world unseen and untouchable within a shadowy parallel dimension—but he doesn’t know how the suit works or where it came from. With his benefactor missing and unfriendlies after his Blackout gear, Scott must find answers before the answers find him!
Wow does this look cool. Yeah, I know that’s kind of a blanket statement there, but it’s the first thing that popped into my head when I read through the preview strip (below) for Dark Horse’s Blackout.
There’s action, there’s teleporting, there’s weird talk of mysterious dimensional shifting and of course- giant robots. Who doesn’t like giant robots?! Even with just a few pages of preview, Blackout made an impact on me and pretty much instantly made me an even bigger fan of what Dark Horse Comics is doing with their superheroes and Project Black Sky.
This is some unique stuff that definitely feels different than what’s coming out of the big two. Not that the more mainstream and established stuff is bad at all (I’m a big fan of a good portion of it), but much like the revamped Valiant, Dark Horse has it’s own vibe going with these books. It feels from the promo that Blackout will fit in nicely with the likes of X and Captain Midnight and others- and that’s avery good thing indeed.
Look for Blackout to warp onto shelves on March 26th from the team of Frank Barbiere, Randy Stradley, Colin Lorimer and Doug Wheatley.
