AfterShock Comics has announced that is set to launch the new series Dark Ark from Cullen Bunn and artist Juan Doe this September, and we have an unlettered, first-look preview of the debut issue for you here…
“DARK ARK is story about monsters–and I mean almost every type of monster you can imagine–struggling to live together in very close quarters,” states Bunn. “These are creatures of nightmare and legend, and they don’t get along at all. It’s a murder mystery. It’s packed with intrigue and treachery and double-crossing. It’s the story of one man’s quest for redemption… while helping to preserve the worst beasts in the world. And it’s even got a little romance… some heartwarming, some very disturbing.”
The wickedness of mankind has moved the Creator to destroy the world by way of the flood. Noah has been tasked with building an ark to save his family and the animals of the world. But this is not Noah’s story. For darker powers have commanded the sorcerer Shrae to build his own ark and save the unnatural creatures of the world—such as the vampires, the dragons, the naga, and the manticore. But what will happen on a vessel crawling with monsters, where insidious intrigue and horrific violence are the rule of law?
Dark Ark #1 is set to go on sale on September 20th, priced $3.99.
