Just a day after announcing his departure from Marvel Comics, Mike Deodato Jr. announced his new creator-owned four issue mini-series Berserker Unbound with writer Jeff Lemire at Dark Horse Comics. Berserker Unbound kicks off with a merciless, sword-wielding warrior thrown through a wormhole to a modern day metropolis. Our hero quickly realizes that he must protect this new world from an evil wizard who will stop at nothing to send him and this new world to hell.
In a press release, Deodato Jr. said:
“I really wanted to draw a barbarian story and Jeff turned this dream of mine into a reality with this deeply emotional story of friendship seen through multiple dimensions. I am not exaggerating when I say this book has the most epic battles I’ve ever drawn! Berserker Unbound is a turning point in my career.”
Berserker Unbound #1 is set to release August 7, 2019.
