Dark Horse Comics is teaming with Berger Books for the release of Olivia Twist, a female-centric tale based on the Dickens classic tale.
In a dangerous future London, teenage orphan Olivia Twist joins the Esthers, a rag-tag gang of girl thieves, to save a boy she barely knows. Led by the elegant, queenly Fagin, they steal from the rich inhabitants of Vertical City while battling the illegally-augmented Trads for control of the streets.
But Olivia’s life of newfound friendships in this world of internment camps and dark technology gets even more complicated when she discovers that she has more power and wealth than she’s ever dreamed of. But it comes at an unfathomable cost.
The four-part mini-series is the first time novelist Darin Strauss has done any comic book work. Strauss is joined by short fiction writer Adam Dalva as co-writer, with Emma Vieceli on art and Lee Loughridge on colors.
Olivia Twist is scheduled to arrive on September 19th, 2018 with a cover price of $4.99.
