Rat Queens Meets Firefly – Kurtis Wiebe And Mindy Lee Bring Their Bounty To Dark Horse, Announced At ECCC

unnamed (4) Dark Horse Comics has announced that Kurtis Wiebe and Mindy Lee have their latest creator-owned series, Bounty #1, from Dark Horse Comics.

"Bounty is strongly my voice and one of my favourite comics I've ever written," says Wiebe.   "While it's about sisters who hunt criminals in the future, it is ultimately about the nature of family and the trust we share with those closest to us.  With a little bit of action and romance on the side. What Mindy Lee is doing with the art is unlike anything I've seen in comics before."

The Gadflies were the most wanted criminals in the galaxy. Over the years, they'd stolen from the galaxy's most evil corporations and redistributed their ill-gotten gains to the less fortunate. Doing so earned them a reputation as the roughest outlaws in the universe—with a bounty to match! Now, with the law closing in on them, the Gadflies are forced to abandon their bandit personas in favor of a new career as bounty hunters . . . 'cause if you can't beat 'em, join 'em—then rob 'em for all they're worth!

They're calling it "Rat Queens meets Firefly". Oh go on then.

Bounty #1 is out on July 6th.
