King's Road Episode 1 Page 1
Peter Hogan (co-creator of Resident Alien) returns to the pages of anthology-title  Dark Horse Presents this month with a new story entitled “King’s Road“, drawn by Phil Winslade.

Dark Horse tell us King’s Road is sure to be another gem for the Eisner-winning monthly, a story that centres on some average suburban kids whose lives are turned upside down when  a nightmare from their father’s hidden past came to hunt them down. Now they must fight the evil forces of the usurping witch Malicia for the right to rule a magical kingdom.

King’s Road is about someone from another world – a magical, semi-medieval world,” Peter says, “who came to Earth about twenty years ago, and settled down and raised a family here. But now he has to go back again, taking his family with him, because he’s inherited the throne of that world.

“Meanwhile, there are all sorts of nasty magical creatures trying to kill him before he gets there.”

Phil Winslade has been drawing comics since 1990, with his work published by Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, 2000AD and Fleetway on books such as Daredevil, Legends of the Dark Knight, Shadowpact, Nevada, Monolith and Howard the Duck.
