MILWAUKIE, Ore., (February 20, 2018)—In 2017, Dark Horse published the Henchgirl collection by breakout talent Kristen Gudsnuk! Today, Dark Horse is pleased to reveal a new creator-owned project from Gudsnuk and writer Rafer Roberts (A&A: The Adventures of Archer and Armstrong), Modern Fantasy. Modern Fantasy marks Roberts’ debut at Dark Horse.
