A high school party goes apocalyptic in a new series by Curt Pires and Jacoby Salcedo.
Y0uth writer Curt Pires and Angel Boy artist Jacoby Salcedo are throwing an epic rager at Dark Horse this winter, and everyone’s invited. Colorist Mark Dale and letterer Micah Myers are bringing the beer.
It’s Only Teenage Wasteland is the story of Javi and his friends, who decide to throw a party when his parents go out of town. And then the world ends.
“I’m so excited to be back at Dark Horse telling this story with Jacoby and our amazing team,” Pires said. “I started my career almost 10 years ago with them, when they agreed to publish Pop and things have only gotten better from there. This story is a spiritual sequel to Youth in a lot of ways, and I think fans of my work new and old will be pulled into this massive world and mystery we’re building here. This is just the first of many more exciting collaborations to come between myself and Dark Horse.”
Based on the cover, things seem to get out of hand for Javi and his pals:

Curt Pires and Antonio Fuso team up for a ‘James Bond meets the X-Files’ miniseries.
Curt Pires and Antonio Fuso have a new series coming from Dark Horse next year, and it’s weird — or Wyrd, actually.
Wyrd, is a four-issue comics series that’s decribed as “James Bond meets The X Files,” and features Pitor Wyrd — “an un-aging, invincible detective with a penchant for the strange who steps in to assist…for a fee. Between a botched attempt at recreating a certain U.S. supersolider, a monster roaming the countryside and a trail of bodies, there is no case too big, too small, or too weird.”

Dynamite announces ‘James Bond: Service,’ a one-shot featuring an assassin’s plot to exterminate the “special relationship” between the U.S. and Great Britain.
Joining a list of writers that already includes Warren Ells, Andy Diggle, James Robinson and Benjamin Percy, Kieron Gillen has signed on to write Dynamite’s James Bond. He’ll team with artist Antonio Fuso to write James Bond: Service, a one-shot due out in May.
“The thing with the icons is that I’m not particularly interested in doing a one-size-fit-all story for them,” Gillen said in his email newsletter today. “You need to make them live, and that means finding something that really captures you. As such, this ends up digging into some of the interest in history and geopolitics which drives work like Uber, and merging it with the contemporary era. It is very much a Bond inspired by Brexit and realpolitik. If you can’t use a country’s icon to talk about the country, what’s the point, right?”
