Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Dan McDaid on board for Dark Horse 'Catalyst Comics' project

Catalyst Comics from Dark Horse

Following the series announcement at last year’s New York Comic Con, US publisher Dark Horse has announced the official release date for Catalyst Comix, whose creative team includes Dan McDaid, Paul Maybury and Brendan McCarthy.

The creative team of Joe Casey and artists Dan McDaid, Ulises Farinas, and Paul Maybury will be turning the superhero genre inside out with a completely original take on capes, tights, and superpowers in the series.

Man of action Joe Casey reimagines powerhouse Titan, guardian angel Amazing Grace, and the subversive Agents of Change in three mind-blowing, intertwining stories. Superhero comics get a back-alley facelift as these very different champions confront a cosmic threat and personal demons -- and where better to start than the end of the world!

“With this book, we’re taking the kinds of creative chances that other corporate superhero series wouldn’t even think about,” said writer Joe Casey. “This thing looks great, it feels great, and it’s the kind of comic book that makes life worth living!”

“Joe and his team have created a very unique comic, existing quite far apart from your traditional Marvel and DC titles,” said Dark Horse President Mike Richardson. “I might even venture to call it the first postmodern superhero series.”

One of the most exciting and groundbreaking new series in Dark Horse’s superhero initiative, Catalyst Comix promises an inspired take on the capes-and-tights genre, with wraparound series covers from Rafael Grampá, Paul Pope, and Brendan McCarthy.

Look for the first issue in your local comic shop on 3rd July 2013.
