WARREN ELLIS COMES TO PROJECT SUPERPOWERS WITH BLACKCROSS
Dynamite Entertainment had announced back in April 2014 that writer Warren Ellis would be working on a Project Superpowers series. Now the publisher has finally shared the details. The title will be called Project Superpowers: Blackcross and will debut in March 2015 with interior artwork from Colton Worley. Instead of focusing on the super heroes of the Golden Age like the previous comics, this one goes for a darker tone in the vein of a supernatural thriller. Here's the writeup from Dynamite:
In the all-new Project Superpowers series, Warren Ellis and Colton Worley take readers on a sinister journey away from the brightly clad heroes of the Golden Age, and into the small town of Blackcross, nestled in the Pacific Northwest. All small towns have secrets, but Blackcross has more secrets than most... it's a lonesome place, haunted by something truly impossible. Project Superpowers: Blackcross is a ghost story about something reaching out from the other side of the night, through the forest and mist of a remote town, to grasp at the hearts of its unsuspecting residents -- victims who won't know that they're the targets of a strange killer until it's much, much too late.

"Since our initial announcement, fans have consistently been asking us two questions: who will be the artist, and when will the series ship? Warren wanted to have multiple scripts written, as well as the right artist on-board (and well into the series), a preference that we stand behind, since we want to ensure on-time delivery for fans and retailers. Warren was very hands-on with the selection of the artist, and we're proud to announce that Colton Worley will be the visual foundation of Blackcross," says Nick Barrucci, Publisher and CEO of Dynamite Entertainment. "With Warren Ellis at the helm, we couldn't do any less than gather the best! The next chapter in the Project Superpowers saga is a mind-blowing, spine-tingling descent into the shadows, and rest assured, it's in good hands."
This wouldn't be a new title launch if it didn't include a bunch of variant covers. Project Superpowers: Blackcross is no different. Declan Shalvey, Tula Lotay, Jason Howard, Jae Lee, Gabrial Hardman, and of course, Colton Worley will all be contributing a cover for the first issue due out in March 2015.

I'm somewhat unfamiliar with Project Superpowers, but if Warren Ellis is involved, you can be damn sure that I'll be checking it out.
