Dark Horse comics has a rather interesting project coming up in June that’s now getting ready to hit the solicitation circuit with Mulan: Revelations. Promoted as a new age of Shanghai cyberpunk, the series comes from writer Marc Andreyko (Batwoman, Manhunter), artist Micah Kaneshiro (Blackout, Broken Pieces), and newcomer creator Robert Alter. The formal solicitation isn’t out yet so we don’t have a firm date or price for the new series, but we’ve got a look at the cover, which you can see to the right..
“Working on this project has been a dream. I’ve always been a fan of extrapolating on myths and legends and dealing with the themes that make them so timeless, and Mulan: Revelations has that in spades,” said Andreyko. “Robert Alter and artist Micah Kaneshiro are tremendous collaborators, and I cannot wait for readers to join us on this exciting journey. They are in for something they have never seen before!”
Plot concept: Though the future boasts endless technological wonders, only a very few can afford access to them. As a deadly new virus rages through the rich and the poor, threatening all of humanity, a warrior is awakened to stop the evil puppeteers behind it all! Centuries after her ancestor and namesake fought for China, a new Mulan has been chosen by the ancient Chinese Immortals to fight in a final battle for the world!
