A new monster-hunting hero arrives on the scene at Dark Horse Comics in February. Though it was not part of Dark Horse's February solicitations, the company will nonetheless launch a new mini-series called Calamity Kate, written by Magdalene Visaggio, with art by Corin Howell, colors by Valentina Pinto, and letters by Zakk Saam.
Though Calamity Kate shares a superhero name with the Golden Age Western comic book hero, this new series doesn't appear to have anything to do with that public domain character.
Check out the press release for more info:
From Eisner and GLAAD Media Award-nominated writer Magdalene Visaggio, breakout artist Corin Howell, colorist Valentina Pinto, and letterer Zakk Saam comes Calamity Kate! Calamity Kate is a modern day adventure of heroes and monsters. Visaggio (Eternity Girl, Kim & Kim), Howell (Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, The Girl in the Bay), Pinto (Dejah Thoris), and Saam (Kim & Kim) join forces to tell the story of Kate Strand as she moves west to hunt monsters.
Calamity Kate catches up with titular hero Kate Strand after she reboots her destructive life and moves to L.A. to become the superhero she always wanted to be—a gun-toting monster killer. With her latest career change, she faces new challenges, relationships, and competition. Kate is desperate to show she's worth a damn in a world overrun by zombies, vampires, demons, goblins, and the ultimate monster bounty: The Seven Fabled Beasts of Yore.
The first issue of Calamity Kate (of four) goes on sale February 13, 2019, and is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.
