Joe Casey and Nathan Fox are only getting started with the 1990s era Extreme Studios character.
Joe Casey and Nathan Fox’s Dutch story from the Image! 30th anniversary anthology miniseries gets collected in November, and Image Comics has announced it’ll be followed by a three-issue miniseries.
Dutch #0 serves as a prelude to the new miniseries, which again puts the focus on the 1990s character created by Chap Yaep. Dutch appeared in Supreme and related Extreme Studios titles, including Bloodstrike and Youngblood.
“This is the start of the biggest, most ambitious project I’ve ever done at Image Comics,” said Casey. “And I’m insanely proud of what Nathan and I set up in this zero issue. Revisiting this kind of classic character, catching up with him—in real time—is a narrative luxury most superhero tales would never even attempt. So for all the old school Image fans—not to mention, for anyone who’s curious what all the fuss was about back in ’92—you can’t afford to miss this. But I promise you… there’s so much more to come!”

New projects announced from Matthew Rosenberg and Tyler Boss, Rob Guillory, J.H. Williams and Haden Blackman, Sam Humphries and Jen Bartel, Annie Wu and more.
As they’ve done in previous years, Image Comics dropped a metric ton of announcements at their Image Expo event, held today in Portland, Oregon.
The line-up of announcements this year includes five new titles from Todd McFarlane’s camp, new titles from Chew creators John Layman and Rob Guillory, two comics from Christoper Sebela, the fact that they’ll publish the Netflix/Millarworld titles starting with The Magic Order and much more. No doubt there are interviews aplenty dropping around the internet on all these new projects, so I’ll start with the text of the press release, then add art and commentary as I find it.
So let’s get to it …
Blackbird by Sam Humphries & Jen Bartel
Sam Humphries and Jen Bartel team up to co-create Blackbird, a modern fantasy story best described as Harry Potter meets Riverdale. It follows a young woman named Nina who discovers a neon-lit world of magic masters in Los Angeles. Now they’ve kidnapped her sister, and Nina is the only one who can save her.
“Blackbird is a labor of love, a coming of age story and beautiful people doing insane things with magic,” said Humphries.
