“‘Modern Fantasy’ follows three friends, new to the big city, as they struggle to keep their crappy day jobs and pay off their student loans. A young Ranger woman, her drug-dealing reptilian wizard roommate, and her boisterous Dwarf maiden BFF as they embark on a modern day quest to save the world. The roommates become embroiled in danger when one of their significant other’s finds himself taken by criminals, and the trio must get their $#!& together to save him.”
Gudsnuk is best known for creating the webcomic “Henchgirl,” which explored similar themes but in the world of superheroes and villains instead; she also wrote stories for IDW’s “Strawberry Shortcake.” This project will be her and Roberts’s first for Dark Horse Comics.
Expect Dark Horse to announce more new series ahead of Emerald City Comic Con, which is being held from Thursday, March 1, to Sunday March 4. On Twitter, Roberts stated he and Gudsnuk “will be signing promotional prints at the Dark Horse booth on the Friday and Saturday of the show. Come on out!”
“Modern Fantasy” #1 is out June 27.
