Amala's Blade Trade Includes All-New Story, More Treats For Fans
By Lan Pitts
Fans of Steven Horton and Michael Dialynus' Amala's Blade were treated to a double-dose of her last year with the with the zero issue which reprinted her Dark Horse Presents debut, as well as a brand new mini-series. Even better for fans, 2014 is already looking good for Amala and company since coming January 22nd, they will be treated to the release of the Amala's Blade trade!
Newsarama recently spoke to Horton about the upcoming trade, as well as some of the bonus features it contains (which you’re treated to a peek at here), the process of creating Amala's world, some of the back story for the readers who didn't catch it the first time, and what he has in store in the year to come.
Newsarama: So, Steve, I'm sure fans are delighted to finally have Amala's Blade in trade form, what all does it contain? Because you have all the Dark Horse Presents stuff and the mini-series as well.
Steve Horton: It contains an eight-page pitch story that Michael Dialynas and I completed, even before we approached Dark Horse. It's a flashback story that fills in a lot of Amala's past, but ultimately didn't fit the story after we got the gig. Yes, we started from scratch after the greenlight. What can I say? We're crazy.
