Buffy is Back

Fear Agent #1

Rick Remender brings his Image creation over to Dark Horse, and he's starting at the beginning to give us the origin story for Fear Agent Heath Huston. It's a bad day for Heath: he finally gets home from a long-haul trucking job, and a alien holocaust interrupts his break. But it's not even a conventional alien takeover: three different alien species fighting it out amongst themselves on our fair planet. With a boozing trucker as the hero, and dark humor suffusing everything, this is not your typical comic book science fiction.

Pencils by Tony Moore. This first issue will ship with a pair of variant covers by Jack Davis and Frank Cho. Check out Newsarama's comprehensive preview with the creators here.
