Lewis + Barravecchia prepare for ‘blood-splattered’ conquest in ‘Bear Pirate Viking Queen’

The three-issue high-fantasy miniseries begins in May.

Sean Lewis will team up with artist/painter  Jonathan Marks Barravecchia for “a blood-splattered story of conquest.” Bear Pirate Viking Queen, coming from Image Comics this May, is billed as a high fantasy story, and from what I can tell, it does not feature a bear who is also a queen, pirate and viking at the same time (although I’ll be pleasantly surprised if that is, indeed, the case).

Alaska battles a supernatural invasion in ‘Survival’

Dark Horse Comics will publish the new miniseries by Sean Lewis and Bryndon Everett.

Natalie Barahona provides colors, while Ed Dukeshire is lettering the project.
