This partnership has been brewing for a very long time,” says Brian Michael Bendis on bringing Jinxworld to Dark Horse. “Mike Richardson, Daniel Chabon, and everyone else at Dark Horse has welcomed us with open arms and it’s very exciting to start rolling out our brand-new epics like Joy Operations and reintroduce you to some of our classic Jinxworld titles like PowersTorso, and Jinx.

AND a new printing of the brand-new sold-out Powers: The Best Ever graphic novel. 

“Brian Bendis is one of the comic industry’s premier talents and we are so excited to welcome him here to Dark Horse,” Dark Horse Comics President and Founder, Mike Richardson said. “As Brian can confirm, I’ve been chasing him for a very long time. Not only will Brian be bringing new stories here for his many fans, but we will be re-releasing new editions of his existing work for a whole new generation of readers.”


In Joy Operations, Brian Michael Bendis, the New York Times bestselling, Peabody and multi-Eisner award-winning co-creator of Miles Morales, Naomi, Jessica Jones, and Ironheart, teams up with comics sensation Stephen Byrne (Wonder TwinsLegion of Superheroes) for their very first creator-owned blockbuster series. 

Fifty-five years from now. Joy is an EN.VOI. A special agent of one of the JONANDO TRUST. Trusts are corporate-owned cities that are the centerpiece of modern society. She rights wrongs for the trust. She is excellent, hard on herself, and driven. Almost a legendary figure in some parts. Until one day a voice pops in her head trying to get her to betray everything she has ever believed.


This meticulously-designed Akira meets Inception journey shows us a new future like only comics can. Joy Operations #1 will also feature a variant cover by David Mack, as well as an exclusive look behind-the-scenes and a look forward to other, brand-new Jinxworld projects coming exclusively to Dark Horse.

Dark Horse’s Jinxworld editor, Daniel Chabon, had this to say: "I am so happy to be working with Brian, Alisa, and their roster of insanely talented co-creators on these upcoming Jinxworld stories. We have some really amazing books in the works right now and I can't wait for folks to see what we have in store from them and Dark Horse's expanding creator-owned universe."


Joy Operations #1 (of five) will be in comic shops on November 17, 2021. Look for Brian Michael Bendis' future Dark Horse releases in upcoming issues of PREVIEWS. All available to preorder using PREVIEWSworld Pullbox.
