Dark Horse launches Project Black Sky into webcomic

The publisher’s new superhero push travels from print monthlies into the wild world of webcomics.

Touting the series as the “hottest web comic of the year”, Dark Horse Comics’ new online-only series set in the Project Black Sky universe has arrived at ProjectBlackSky.net. The five-part miniseries will run from now till this September and will detail the secret files uncovered on the viral IWatchTheSky.com conspiracy site.

Fred Van Lente takes the writing chores on the series, with colorist Dan Jackson and letterer Nate Piekos assisting in the creation of each panel. Each panel, you ask? Yep, each day a new panel will go up on the site with more story and revelations about the superheroics of Dark Horse’s newest heroes.

Here’s what publication of the series will look like and when to expect each new chapter:

Project Black Sky Part 1: The Field, featuring art by Steve Ellis, goes live on May 2 with eight screens!

Project Black Sky Part 2: The Launch features art by Michael Broussard and will post weekdays with forty screens beginning May 5.

Project Black Sky Part 3: The Ring features art by Steve Ellis and will post weekdays with forty screens beginning June 26.
