MySpace and Dark Horse Comics announced today the two companies would partner to bring MySpace Dark Horse Presents to the online community.
This new online series, which is an homage to the original print Dark Horse Presents, will include original content, will be available exclusively on MySpace, and best of all, it’s free.
The August issue goes live on MySpace today, and will include the following comics:
- Sugar Shock, the debut new comic from artist Fábio Moon and Joss Whedon, creator of the popular television shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly, and author of the highly successful Dark Horse Comics miniseries, Fray, among others
- The Umbrella Academy by artist Gabriel Bá and Gerard Way, lead singer of the band My Chemical Romance
- Samurai by Ron Marz and Luke Ross
- Comic-Con Murder Mystery by Rick Geary
The comics contained in future issues of “MySpace Dark Horse Presents” will include a mix from both established, successful, comic creators as well as talented amateurs. Site editors from both MySpace and Dark Horse Comics will search MySpace profiles for new talent to feature in every upcoming issue. New issues will be available exclusively on MySpace the first week of every month, with the second issue premiering the first week of September.
