NEXT INSTALLMENT IN BERGER BOOKS IMPRINT SOARS ONTO SHELVES IN JULY 2018
Dark Horse To Release “She Could Fly” from Christopher Cantwell and Martín Morazzo
Dark Horse Comics is pleased to reveal the next comics series installment in the Berger Books imprint! Writer Christopher Cantwell, co-creator/showrunner of AMC’s critically acclaimed Halt and Catch Fire, and artist Martín Morazzo (Nighthawk, Elektra, Ice Cream Man) will unite to tell the strange and poignant tale of the Flying Woman in She Could Fly. They are joined by Miroslav Mrva on color.
The extraordinary story of She Could Fly begins in Chicago, when an unknown woman, flying at speeds of 120 miles per hour and at heights reaching 2,000 feet, suddenly dies in a fiery explosion mid-air.
No one knows who she was, how she flew, or why. Some think it was a government program. Some think it was foreign surveillance. Some think it was all fake. Some are even convinced that it was a religious, transcendent experience happening on earth.
Luna Brewster, a disturbed 15-year-old girl becomes obsessed with learning everything about her while rumors and conspiracy theories roil. Will cracking the secrets of the Flying Woman’s inner life lead to the liberation from her own troubled mind?
The first issue of She Could Fly contains 32-pages of story and retails for $4.99. She Could Fly #1 goes on sale July 11, 2018, and is available for preorder at your local comic shop.
