Skybound presents Manifest Destiny, a new ongoing series from creator/writer Chris Dingess (television writer for Syfy’s BEING HUMAN) and artist Matthew Roberts (who worked on Image Comics’ BATTLE POPE with Kirkman).
Manifest Destiny follows Meriwether Lewis and William Clark’s historic expedition across America, only for them to uncover that the frontier is full of monsters. This series debuts in November.
“I’m fascinated by the pop culture phenomenon of taking historical characters, both real and fictional, and placing them in big, fake, extraordinary adventures,” said Dingess. “I’m also intrigued by the modern world’s growing obsession with vast government conspiracies, both real and fictional. I was excited to take these two concepts and make them have a baby. And Matt Roberts has made this baby very pretty.”
“Chris has written such a crazy, fun adventure, but he always leaves me enough rope to hang myself in the details,” adds Roberts. “For example – I had no clue how in vogue popped up collars were in the early 19th century. That and leather chokers. Researching and drawing all these things is such a turn from drawing shiny, spandexed muscles. I’m having a blast.”
Look for Manifest Destiny this November!
