SWASHBUCKLING CYBERPUNK ADVENTURE TAKES FLIGHT THIS APRIL IN JULES VERNE’S: LIGHTHOUSE
PORTLAND, Ore. 01/20/2021 — Bestselling creative duo David Hine and Brian Haberlin—who brought readers breakout hits like The Marked and Sonata—are back again this April with an all-new adventure in Jules Verne’s: Lighthouse.
Set on the high seas of space, and based upon the work of master
storyteller Jules Verne, this five issue science fiction miniseries will
launch from Image/Shadowline with an extra length first issue.
"Brian introduced me to this lesser-known Jules Verne story of dastardly
brigands and survival on a lonely, windswept island," said Hine. "We
did the obvious thing and transformed it into an epic science-fiction
tale of space piracy, wormholes, galaxy-spanning conflict and a glitchy
but lovable robot called Moses."
Jules Verne’s: Lighthouse is set at the edge of the galaxy,
where there is a giant supercomputer known as the Lighthouse. The only
brain powerful enough to navigate ships through a sargasso of naturally
occurring wormholes, potentially cutting months or even years off a
spaceship’s journey. Three humans, one alien, and a nanny bot have
manned the remote station for years in relative peace until the arrival
of Captain Kongre and his band of cutthroat pirates threatens the future
of civilization and reveals that each of the Lighthouse crew has been
hiding a shocking secret.
He who controls the Lighthouse controls this part of the galaxy.
Haberlin added: "Lighthouse is a story that has been in my
orbit for years. It’s one of Jules Verne’s most interesting stories on
an emotional/psychological level. David and I love playing with flawed
characters and this story is simply full of them. A tale of survival and
redemption, against all odds at the far corner of the universe!"
Jules Verne’s: Lighthouse #1 Cover A by Haberlin and Geirrod Van Dyke (Diamond Code FEB210038) and Jules Verne’s: Lighthouse #1 Cover B by Haberlin and Van Dyke (Diamond Code FEB210039) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, April 14.
Jules Verne’s: Lighthouse #1 will also be available for
purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple
Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
