Dark Horse announces sci-fi one-shot ‘Children of the Plague’

When kids are suddenly infected with a disease from outer space and begin forming mysterious superpowers, they become ‘Children of the Plague.’

Press Release

Dark Horse Comics has revealed a new sci-fi one-shot set for September release called Children of the Plague. The one-shot is by Robert Love with colors by Jeffrey Kimbler and letters by David Walker.

“This story is not about fighting monsters, it’s about Remy’s personal struggle. Although she has come to accept her pending death, her relationship with Valmount and her brother Peter is the greatest challenge she’s ever faced— not the fire-breathing monster she’s about to fight,” Robert Love said. “I wanted to do a story about fighting to survive in an unrelenting world that you were not responsible for creating.”
