dark horse logoDark Horse Comics will be publishing a “historical fiction genre smash-up” three-issue miniseries starring President George Washington.

The first installment of The Forge series will be released on April 29, 2015. The creative team behind this project includes Donn D. Berdahl, Andy Briggs, and Victor Gischler.

Here’s more from the press release: “Before he fathered a nation, young George Washington forged his legend in blood! Before he fought for his country, he killed for the king! Imbued with the mystical powers of America’s original inhabitants, George and his superpowered axe—along with his friends, a debauched, middle-aged Ben Franklin and a young, rebellious Paul Revere—must stop an evil colonial governor who wishes to rule an empire!”
