'Mad Max' Co-Writer and Designer Fight Off Sleep With New Project 'Dream Gang'
After the War Boys, it's time for the Dream Voyager.
Dark Horse Comics has announced plans to publish Dream Gang, a new project from writer and artist Brendan McCarthy, best known to mainstream audiences as one of the writers and concept artists for last year's Mad Max: Fury Road, collecting and updating material previously released as part of the company's Dark Horse Presents anthology series.
McCarthy describes Dream Gang as "the story of a young man who lives a dreary, gray life" who "has a vivid dream that connects him to a group of naturally gifted psychic voyagers known as the Dream Gang." Together with the Dream Gang, he has to find a bomb implanted into one of his memories.
In addition to his work on Fury Road, McCarthy has worked on a number of movies and TV projects including Lost In Space, The Borrowers and Coneheads, in addition to having a comic book career that stretches back to the late 1970s including work on Judge Dredd, Spider-Man and DC Entertainment's Doom Patrol and Shade the Changing Man.
Dream Gang will be released July 27.
