Resident Alien creator Steve Parkhouse and writer Geoffrey D. Wessel (Kaiju Sunset) are collaborating on War Birds, a graphic novel about friendship, love, and survival – with drones.

“Two renegade AI minds simply want to make conversation – not war! When a bipedal, independent robot soldier makes a unique connection with an injured, flying drone, they flee the warzone they’re in to seek lives of their own. Their military builders want to destroy them while a sympathetic pair of humans try what they can to free the errant ’bots from military service,” Dark Horse’s description states.

The War Birds trade paperback from Dark Horse Books will be in comic shops on March 8, 2023. It retails for $19.99.
