Dark Horse announces new project from Peter Bagge

Peter Bagge's Reset

In the tradition of one-word titles like Yeah! and Hate, Dark Horse Comics announced a new project from creator Peter Bagge, Reset.

The press release from Dark Horse describes the book as: “If you could relive major events in your life, would you take a stab at making things better—and would your best attempts only make things worse? Or would you use your second chance to put your most twisted, perverted fantasies in motion? These are questions washed-up actor and comedian Guy Krause asks himself after he signs up to be the main research subject for a virtual-reality experiment.”

The first issue of the four-issue series comes out in April and features a variant cover from Matt Kindt, which you can see after the jump.

Great news! P. Bagge can’t miss. His Apocalypse Nerd (also from DH) is woefully underrated, as was his EXCELLENT collection of comics from Reason magazine published by Fantagraphics a couple years back. SO stoked to see something new from him. His work is some of my favorites to share with my ignorant non-conics reading friends. This sounds like a great concept for that excellent humor and pathos Bagge does so well. Robot 6, you’ve made my day :)

I got to talk to Peter about this very briefly when I met him in Seattle to pick up a (wonderful!) commission he did for me. Very excited to see that it’s definitely coming out now. Can’t wait for April. :)

I agree with David as well regarding Apocalypse Nerd… that was a really fantastic series. The backup stories in that series were absolutely amazing. Even managed to snag the OA for the entire Thomas Paine… story!
