D.O.G.S. of Mars coming in 2011
Although most fans probably know Comixology as the company at the forefront of bringing other company’s comics to the iPhone, the iPad and the Web, they’ve also been producing their own digital comics for distribution across their various platforms. Joining Moon Girl and Box 13 is a new comic called D.O.G.S. of Mars, which will be released in January.
Johnny Zito and Tony Trov, writers of the Zuda strip Black Cherry Bombshells and Moon Girl, along with Christian Weiser, are teaming up with High Treason Pictures to tell the story of Zoe, “the swashbuckling captain of Earth’s first Martian colony. Isolated on the farthest frontier of civilization, order breaks down when unfamiliar hostiles invade. Zoe faces mutiny, death and dishonor; she must sacrifice her humanity if she hopes to survive.”
High Treason hopes to release the D.O.G.S. of Mars comic in anticipation of the film, which is scheduled for production next year. The comic will be drawn by Paul Maybury, artist of Party Bear and Aqua Leung, with covers by Rhazzah.
High Treason Pictures’ previous films include Bigger, Stronger, Faster and Neil Patrick Harris’ The Best and The Brightest.
