GHOST PROJEKT AT SYFY

The comic was written by Joe Harris, with art by Steve Rolston.

Also in development are Seeing Things, about a cop becomes a ghost and a socially awkward man who realizes that the hallucinations he’s had all his life may not be a figment of his imagination; and an untitled project from producer Robert H. Wolfe about the newly formed Unity Democracy, which orders a volatile mix of humans and trans-humans to lead the Starship Defender on an expedition in search of lost worlds requiring law and order.

DARK HORSE COMICS ROUNDUP

Dark Horse Comics has announced it is teaming with writer Caitlín R. Kiernan to publish Alabaster.

Alabaster is based on Kiernan's Dancy Flammarion stories, a dark fantasy series centered around a female teenage protagonist of striking appearance and hidden, terrible depths.

Alabaster will first appear in Dark Horse Presents #9 (on sale Feb. 22), followed by the five-issue mini-series Alabaster: Wolves that launches April 11.

Alabaster: Wolves features art by Steve Lieber and cover by Greg Ruth.

Here's how Dark Horse sets up the story:

"For nearly as long as she can remember, 17-year-old Dancy Flammarion has fought monsters, cutting a bloody swath through the demons and dark things of the world, aimed like a weapon by a merciless seraph, more taskmaster than guardian.

"Part continuation, part reimagining, the series begins with Dancy making and breaking an oath in the name of her seraph, who subsequently abandons her. Injured and alone, Dancy has to find her own way for the first time in her life -- and the wolves are closing in."

In other Dark Horse news:

* UXB by Colin Lorimer will debut in Dark Horse Presents #10 in March.

Here's how the story is described:

"In a shattered future postwar London, powerful experimental 'life suits' that permanently graft to human bodies are created to counter the threat of terrorism. Given to three brothers, the suits could make the trio the saviors of mankind -- if they can ever get past their obsessions for film, violent video games and porn."
