BALTIMORE COMIC-CON: GLASS AND SANTOS GET FURIOUS!
Harvey Award winner Bryan J. L. Glass brings his creator-owned superhero to Dark Horse Comics!
SEPTEMBER 6, BALTIMORE, MD—Writer Bryan J. L. Glass (Mighty Marvel: Women of Marvel, Thor: First Thunder) and artist Victor Santos (Ghosts, Polar: Came from the Cold, Filthy Rich), two-thirds of the Harvey Award–winning Mice Templar team, will join forces once again for a creator-owned superhero series: Furious!
Furious is a five-issue miniseries where celebrity, fame, and superheroes meet.
“Furious, the character, is driven by the same outrage and anger we all feel toward injustice, but as a superheroine she realizes she actually has the power to do something about it,” says writer Bryan J. L. Glass. “But no matter how noble the intention, there’s always a price to pay for reckless action.”
Staring into a fractured mirror of her life, the world’s first superhero, Furious, seeks to atone for her past sins by doling out rage-fueled justice! But the spotlight of our celebrity-obsessed media threatens to undo her noblest efforts and expose her true identity before she can achieve redemption.
“Furious, the series, is driven by those consequences: An adrenaline-fueled crash into the darkest depths of one woman’s shattered world and what she chooses to do about it!” added Glass.
