Dark Horse Comics reveals preview panels from Eric Heisserer’s Shaper

Filmmaker Eric Heisserer brings his cinematic vision to comics in the thrilling new miniseries ‘Shaper’ from Dark Horse Comics.

Heisserer is a writer and director known for, what I thought was the highly underrated 2011 remake of The Thing, along with the strong 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street. In his new series, he tells a timeless tale for a new generation in the tradition of Arthurian legends and Star Wars. With artwork by Felipe Massafera (Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors, Captain Midnight), Shaper hits the ground running in a no-holds-barred sci-fi adventure.

A galactic empire hunts a race of shape shifters prophesied to overthrow its rule. When orphaned teenager Spry discovers that he is one of the hunted — a Shaper — he must learn to use his newfound abilities to escape the empire’s prime enforcer, Tor Ajax, and save his entire race.

Shaper #1 (of 5) is on sale March 18 in comic shops everywhere. Check out preview pages from the series, below.
