Dark Engine Pits Savagery Against Destiny


What do you get when you team up Ryan Burton with John Bivens? How about an all-new, ongoing series from Image Comics called Dark Engine. It's a book that apparently seems to focus on the evil inside us all. With ribsword in hand, with gore in her curling locks, Sym has been sent to the distant past to murder her creators’ enemies. But the twisted alchemists who made Sym do not know that the engine that powers her is sentient, that it is the seed of their destruction. By blood and by fury, Sym will carve out her destiny in this new ongoing series.

“Some drive us, some are alive and thinking. And Sym will learn just exactly what drives her, and why she was sent back in time to essentially murder anything standing,” explained Burton. “Of course, John [Bivens] does a brilliant job of capturing the enormous scope of the story, whether it's showing the stygian machinations of Sym's creators or the harrowing vistas that are littered with the husks of old Lovecraftian monsters, it's all there."

Dark Engine #1 arrives in stores on 7/16 and will be available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAY140574. Full press release below.
