Studio 407 will release its Hybrid series in trade paperback form on February 25, 2009.Â If you didn’t get a chance to read the individual issues, now might be a good time to read the collection before the movie adaptation hits theaters.
“This was a real opportunity to take an old fashioned genre, the classic monster story, and bring it into the 21st century. says Hybrid writer Peter Kwong. “The ‘hybrid” is unlike any creature that you’ve ever seen; yet, like all classical monsters, it’s very much rooted in contemporary fears and anxieties. That always makes it more interesting as a writer, and, I hope, the audience will agree.”
Studio 407 has provided a sneak peek at the first issue, that you can read after the jump.
Hybrid (DCD item # DEC084240)
Writer: Peter Kwong
Artist: Pablo Churin
When four friends decide to rent a schooner for the day, everything is smooth sailing until they encounter a derelict ship adrift in the ocean â€” a massive trawler that looks as if it had been dragged from the bottom of the sea. When they spot a frightened little girl waving at them from the bow, they have no choice but to investigate. As they get closer to the ship, they discover that the girl is not alone.
Hybrid will sell for $16.99
