Eisner-Award Winning “The Silver Coin” Creator Michael Walsh Launches Cyberpunk Series “Nullhunter” In October

nullhunterMichael Walsh, the Eisner Award-winning creator of The Silver Coin, as well as upcoming Skybound miniseries Universal Monsters: Frankenstein and The Horizon Experiment: The Sacred Damned, is setting out on an epic quest with rising star artist Gustaffo Vargas (Marvel’s Voices X-Men) to create new sci-fi series Nullhunter, a neon-infused cyberpunk retelling of the Labors of Hercules set amongst the stars. This reimagining of classic Greek mythology, that interplays ’80s-inspired dystopian storytelling and art in the same vein as fan-favorites like Ronin and Blade Runner, will set sail when issue #1 hits shelves in October.

In Nullhunter, Clay is a war hero who faces unspeakable tragedy after returning home. Seeking justice, he’s forced into service for his estranged father’s powerful company, OLYMP0S. His first mission takes him to faraway N3M-3A on the trail of a hijacked shipment of war lions. In seeking exoneration, this quest of twelve near-impossible labors will lead Clay to the very edges of space as he discovers the true source of evil in the cosmos.

“When I was a kid, I was obsessed with Greco-Roman mythology. I’d spend hours pouring over old mythology books that I’d rented from the library while drawing my own versions of Hercules, Zeus, Poseidon, and all the larger-than-life gods and monsters. For a long time, I’ve wanted to take a crack at making a Hercules comic, but I could never find a unique and original way in,” said Walsh.
