ECCC: Wiebe's New "Bounty" Series is What Happens When "Rat Queens" Meets "Firefly"

At Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, Dark Horse revealed a new sci-fi adventure series -- titled "Bounty" -- from Eisner-winning writer Kurtis Wiebe ("Rat Queens") and artist Mindy Lee ("CVO: Covert Vampiric Operations"), which is described as "Rat Queens" meets "Firefly."

Dark Horse unveiled the following first issue cover for "Bounty," be Lee:

"Bounty is strongly my voice and one of my favourite comics I've ever written," Wiebe said of his new creator-owned book. "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."

Here's a description of "Bounty" from Dark Horse's official press release: "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!"

"Bounty" #1 hits stands on July 6, and retails for $3.99.
