Anyone who's read Rat Queens (among other works) knows that Kurtis Wiebe is quite the talented writer. His talents always need an outlet though, which is why he's teaming up with Dark Horse comics this summer to release Bounty #1 on July 6. In the new ongoing series, Wiebe will be joined by Mindy Lee on art.
“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!
