Peter Hogan (Resident Alien, Sandman Presents, The Dreaming) returns to fantasy to deliver a three-issue miniseries of King’s Road next February, continuing the tale that began in Dark Horse Presents #23 back in 2013.
Artist Staz Johnson (Judge Dredd) and colourist Douglas Sirois (The 7th Sword) join Hogan to continue this tale of a family on the run from magical, other-dimensional monsters.
They were just your average suburban kids until 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.
The series kicks off with a 48-page special that includes all King’s Road chapters from Dark Horse Presents by Peter Hogan and Phil Winslade — and an additional issue’s worth of story drawn by the new King’s Road art team.
“King’s Road is about someone from another world – a magical, semi- medieval world—who came to Earth about twenty years ago, and settled down and raised a family here,” Hogan explained when the series was first announced as part of DHP‘s line up back in 2013, “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.”
