Darby Pop Publishing launches new line of comic books with Jeff Kline’s “Indestructible”
Los Angeles, CA – Darby Pop Publishing releases the first in its new line of all-original comic books with the publication of the satiric superhero tale — “Indestructible” – on December 11th. Published and distributed in partnership with IDW, “Indestructible” is the story of a not-so-heroic slacker (Greg Pincus) who is in the wrong place at the right time, thwarting a robbery with what the general public believes to be “superpowers.” This ongoing series will explore the pitfalls of celebrity, and examine just how far an ordinary Joe will go to maintain his — potentially lethal — fame and the perks that come with it.
“Indestructible” was written by Jeff Kline, who has been responsible for more than 40 animated and live-action television series and pilots including Transformers Prime, and G.I. Joe: Renegades. “Indestructible” #1 is penciled by Javi Garron, inked by Salvi Garcia and colored by Alejandro Sanchez. Jose Lopez is providing the main cover, with Bernard Chang providing a special subscription variant cover.
Kline’s passion for storytelling led him to found Darby Pop Publishing in early 2013. David Wohl (Marvel, Top Cow Productions, and more recently, Radical Comics) is Editor-In-Chief.
Darby Pop plans to release new issues of “Indestructible” monthly, and a new title every other month. The second title to be released will be “City: The Mind in the Machine,” due out in February, 2014, followed by “7th Sword,” in April, 2014.
Founder Jeff Kline (Transformers: Prime, G.I. Joe: Renegades) created Darby Pop Publishing with the goal of using the visual medium of sequential art — aka comic books — to tell all-new stories crafted by a small circle of friends. As a life-long lover of the form, Kline had been searching for years for someone with whom to partner who understood comics inside and out. It was upon meeting former Marvel and Top Cow Editor David Wohl that Kline knew he had finally found Darby Pop’s Editor-In-Chief. The two have since reached out to many talented writers, artists, and comics professionals to build the team behind Darby Pop Publishing’s ever-growing array of original titles.
Darby Pop comic books are published and distributed by IDW Publishing.
