A New Criminal Mastermind Team Emerges in New Dark Horse Series Masterpiece
Masterpiece is an upcoming action/adventure comic series by Dark Horse Comics and Jinxworld. Created by the Eisner Award-winning duo Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev, this gripping new series will keep readers on the edge of their seats as they enter the story of Emma as her world is turned upside down as a result of a hidden secret.
The story follows Emma, also known as Masterpiece, a gifted and determined 16-year-old. Emma has financed her education through her ingenious inventions and gained recognition for her humorous and insightful webcomics. However, her world is turned upside down when she discovers the truth about her parents.
Emma learns that she is the daughter of two notorious master criminals who were responsible for some of the most audacious heists in history. They vanished after outsmarting the billionaire Zero Preston and stealing a billion dollars from him. Zero has been seeking revenge ever since, and now he sets his sights on Emma.
Threatened by Zero, Emma must assemble a team of her peers and her parents’ former associates in order to pull off an impossible heist against Zero’s corporate enemy. Along the way, she will uncover hidden secrets about her parents and her own abilities.
With Bendis at the helm, crafting what will undoubtedly be another compelling narrative, and Maleev bringing the story to life with his stunning illustrations, Masterpiece will take us on a thrilling ride for fans of Miles Morales, Legion of Superheroes, and Akira. The series also features variant covers by artists Latoy and Peach Momoko. Join Emma on her journey as she delves into her parents’ criminal legacy and discovers the true extent of her own powers.
Masterpiece #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on December 13, 2023.
