San Diego, CA (April 3, 2014) – From the minds of Rob Rosell and Scott Marder, known from IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA and UNSUPERVISED with writer Jack Lambert and artist Brandon McKinney (ARMY OF TWO), Darby Pop’s newest comic, DOBERMAN, will make its debut this July.
“DOBERMAN is the tale of a roundhouse-kicking, beer-shotgunning, Dodge Stealth-driving badass with a badge, shamed into years of personal exile. But, now he’s back, with only one thing on his mind — revenge!” said Jack Lambert. “Simply put, if Sylvester Stallone, Steven Seagal, and Jean-Claude Van Damme had a child, Frank Doberano (aka Doberman) would be that bastard’s name.”
Frank Doberman was the greatest detective of his era with the fastest car, biggest gun, and longest… um… arrest record. But after a drug bust went horribly wrong, Doberman disappeared, seeking solace in the comforting bosom of Mother Nature. Lured back to the Force by the promise of vengeance, and an ice-cold six-pack, Doberman has to deal with a new age of social media, regulations, and an uber-villain whom the world wants to believe has changed his ways.
