Filmmaker Eric Heisserer brings his cinematic vision to comics in the thrilling new miniseries ‘Shaper’ from Dark Horse Comics.
Heisserer is a writer and director known for, what I thought was the highly underrated 2011 remake of The Thing, along with the strong 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street. In his new series, he tells a timeless tale for a new generation in the tradition of Arthurian legends and Star Wars. With artwork by Felipe Massafera (Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors, Captain Midnight), Shaper hits the ground running in a no-holds-barred sci-fi adventure.
A galactic empire hunts a race of shape shifters prophesied to overthrow its rule. When orphaned teenager Spry discovers that he is one of the hunted — a Shaper — he must learn to use his newfound abilities to escape the empire’s prime enforcer, Tor Ajax, and save his entire race.
Shaper #1 (of 5) is on sale March 18 in comic shops everywhere. Check out preview pages from the series, below.
