This is some awesome news for fans of these two.
Dark Horse has announced that Sam Humphries and Dalton Rose’s acclaimed self-published title, Sacrifice, will be getting the hardcover treatment. The six-issue miniseries premiered all the way back in 2011, but has since been oft-delayed due to the rising success of its creators. Since the series debut, Humphries has gone on to write for Ultimate Comics Ultimates, Uncanny X-Force, and John Carter: Gods of Mars, while Rose has worked on Theremin and Phabula, among others.
The final issue of the series will release on March 20th, with the hardcover edition to follow this September. Humphries sounds rather excited about the move, stating “We could not be more pleased that Sacrifice has found a new home at Dark Horse, their track record for gorgeous print editions is unparalleled, and their respect for comics is unquestioned. How cool is it that a whole new audience will be able to discover Sacrifice with a Dark Horse logo on the front?”
