Matt Sturges is ging to be treading in some familiar territory when he writes the as of yet unnamed Damsels spin-off series for Dynamite. Sturges, who worked on the Jack of Fables series at Vertigo, will pen a spin-off series set in the world of Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and a host of other fairy tale maidens.
Dynamite signs writer Matt Sturges to new limited series! Damsels, a story featuring Cinderalla, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid and Snow White proved to be such a huge hit for Dynamite that we are coming out with a spin-off series to Damsels!
“What Damsels does for dry land, this book does for the ocean,” says writer Matt Sturges. “We’ve got mermaids! Pirates! A kraken! Sirens! All wrapped up in fast-past coming-of-age story, filled with treachery, high adventure, and very probably some sharks. (And maybe even a little romance for good measure.) In short: if it’s in a fairy tale or legend, and it’s wet, we’ve got it.”
“We’ve had incredible success with our ongoing Damsels series, and there’s a rich world of new Damsels stories to be told. We want to add to that world with the right mini-series, and needed a writer with the right sensibility and the ability to execute great stories. We found that with Matt. I’ve been a fan of his work going back to House of Mystery, JSA, Shadow Pact, and of course Jack of Fables. This is a series that fans will find as a great compliment to our Damsels ongoing series.” States Dynamite President Nick Barrucci.
The Damsels spin-off is set to debut in 2013.
