A TALE OF TWO WAR BOTS

From the mind that brought you ‘Resident Alien’

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (June 27, 2022)— Dark Horse Books and Steve Parkhouse (Resident Alien, Milkman Murders) are proud to present War Birds. Steve Parkhouse along with writer Geoffrey D. Wessel (Keeper, Takedown) join together to bring this thrilling tale of friendship and survival!

Two renegade AI minds want to simply make conversation—not war! When a bipedal, independent robot soldier makes a unique connection with an injured, flying drone, they flee the warzone they’re in to seek lives of their own. Their military builders want to destroy them, though, while a sympathetic pair of humans tries what they can to free the errant ’bots from military service!

War Birds trade paperback will be in comic shops March 8th, 2023 and bookstores March 21st, 2023. It is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop and bookstore for $19.99.
