Nate Cosby’s Buddy Cops has been announced by Dark Horse Comics for their #9 issue of Dark Horse Presents. The new story from Cosby is bound to throw some slaps and punches; Uranus, a galactic space protector demoted to the NYPD (for drinking) is teaming up with Tazer, a reprogrammed 1970s android that follows the exact letter of the law. They hate each other but they are the Buddy Cops.
This February, Nate Cosby (Pigs, Jim Henson’s The Storyteller), Evan Shaner (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller), and Rus Wooton (The Walking Dead) will bring the house down in an all-new story featured in Dark Horse Presents #9.
Monsters! Glowing swords! White boys rapping Wu-Tang lyrics — Fans couldn’t ask for more. Same is to be said about Tom Morello’s Orchid #1 which Dark Horse revealed has sold out of comic shops. Demand for Tom Morello’s epic dystopian fantasy has driven comic stores across the U.S. to a complete sell out of issue #1.
From the mind of musician Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, The Nightwatchman), with art by Scott Hepburn (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic), Orchid is the tale of a teenage prostitute who learns that she is more than the role society has imposed upon her.
Issue #1 started the tale; when the seas rose, genetic codes were smashed. Now, human settlements are ringed by a dense wilderness, from which ferocious new animal species prey on the helpless. The high ground belongs to the rich and powerful, who overlook swampland shantytowns from their fortresslike cities.
Iron-fisted rule ensures order and allows the wealthy to harvest the poor as slaves. Welcome to the world of Orchid. Look for news about an Orchid #1 reprint on the Dark Horse Blog, but in the meantime fans should head to their local comic shop and grab one of the final copies of #1 for only $1 before they’re gone for good.
Orchid #2 is on sale November 9th, 2011.
In Issue #2 — Orchid, along with her little brother and an unexpected ally named Simon, find themselves in unknown territory after they’re captured and sold by slave traders.
Headed toward the feared Fortress Penuel, Simon must mount an escape plan if he’s going to rescue his rebel comrades and return the mysterious and powerful mask of General China to its rightful owner–a saint believed to save the oppressed from the wicked Tomo Wolfe.
