Dark Horse Comics Announces Gritty Crime Mini-Series ‘The Icon’

by Brendan M. Allen

From writer and Dark Horse founder Mike Richardson and artist Jordi Armengol comes the cataclysmic crime miniseries, The Icon.

‘Twenty-five years ago, a genuine masked hero came out of nowhere to declare war on crime. All of America celebrated the exploits of the black-clad vigilante as he took down one lawbreaker after another, until suddenly he vanished. But when down-on-his-luck investigator Jake Stevens is hired to find the long-missing dark avenger, his inquiries threaten to expose the myth behind the mask. In gritty realistic detail, THE ICON shines a bright light into the dark corners of truth, justice, and the American Way.’

“Jordi and I have had some fun taking superhero conventions and throwing a little noir into the mix,” says Richardson. “We think the readers will have fun too.” 

“Mike’s script is agile, unpredictable. His characters are hard-boiled, lurking in the dark,” adds Armengol. “It’s been a while since I had enjoyed my work so much and I hope you’ll notice it. Enjoy!”

 The Icon #1 (of four) arrives in comic shops December 15, 2021.
