MILWAUKIE, Ore. (December 12, 2019) — Join us in celebrating two of Dark Horse Comics Founder Mike Richardson's (Father's Day, Star Wars: Crimson Empire) classic tales, The Atomic Legion and 47 Ronin—now available in paperback!

Everyone deserves a second chance! In The Atomic Legion, illustrated by Bruce Zick (Dark Horse Presents, Thor), the heroes of yesterday, once hailed as saviors, have been rejected and forgotten by the public and have hidden out in a secret fortress near the North Pole for decades. But when the Professor—a mysterious scientist who built the fortress—is kidnapped by an evil rival, a young boy rallies the monsters, robots, and caped wonders to once again become the heroes of the Atomic Legion!

Travel back to feudal Japan with this faithful adaptation of 47 Ronin! Illustrated by decorated cartoonist, Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo), the tale of these samurai and their epic mission to avenge their wronged master is the story of Japan. Opening with the tragic incident that sealed the fate of Lord Asano, 47 Ronin follows a dedicated group of his vassals on their years-long path of vengeance! Meticulously researched and beautifully illustrated, this collection of the acclaimed miniseries recounts this sweeping saga of honor and violence in all its grandeur. Includes bonus art and behind-the-scenes historical extras!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
