Media Release — Darby Pop Publishing in partnership with IDW launches the first in its new line of all-original comic books this December with the release of the satiric superhero tale, Indestructible.
Indestructible is the story of a not-so-heroic slacker, Greg Pincus who when he finds himself in the wrong place at the right time, thwarts 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 “average Joe” will go to maintain his (potentially lethal) fame and the perks that come with it.
Indestructible #1 is written by Jeff Kline, 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.
Jeff Kline has been responsible for more than 40 animated and live-action television series and pilots including Transformers Prime, and G.I. Joe: Renegades. His passion for storytelling also led him to found Darby Pop Publishing in early 2013.
