Dark Horse Books, who will be joining the ever-hungry Embracer Group, has announced a new comic book.
John Dunning’s Wiper is about a private detective who wipes her memory after every job. Why? Luna Nomi offers complete discretion; there’s no way she can remember anything embarrassing about her clients.
With touches of Blade Runner and perhaps Total Recall, the sci-fi graphic novel is pencilled and inked by Ricardo Cabral, coloured by Brad Simpson and lettered by Jim Campbell.
Dark Horse says this of the plot;
When she’s hired by enigmatic robot Klute she thinks the case is the answer to all her problems. But there’s something oddly familiar about Klute–and the more she investigates the disappearance of journalist Orson Glark, the more she suspects that he’s somehow connected to her own past…
Lula must face her greatest fears to learn what happened to Glark…and the truth about herself.
Wiper is slated for a September 14 release for comic stores and then on the 27th for bookstores. It’s available on pre-order at Amazon and Barnes & Noble now. I don’t yet see it at British comic book stores like Forbidden Planet, even though they are usually quick to stock Dark Horse.
