Joss Whedon parted ways with Marvel Studios in order to focus on other more personal projects, but what?  The answer came at San Diego Comic Con this year, where Whedon popped up to announce the first of these personal projects– a new comic book named ‘Twist’ which he will release through longtime collaborators Dark Horse, who publish comics based on various Whedon projects like ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ and ‘Firefly.’

Whedon described his new project by saying “It’s a Victorian thriller about a meek chambermaid who is fed to a dark horror — but instead of dying, she returns, with knowledge, power, and rage she can neither deny nor control.”  ‘Twist’ will be released as a six-issue miniseries.

Whedon is no stranger to comics, having written an acclaimed run on ‘Astonishing X-Men’ for Marvel in addition to his own creations for Dark Horse.  It was at Dark Horse’s panel at SDCC that Whedon announced ‘Twist.’

Don’t head down to your LCS to add it to your pull list just yet.  There’s no word on when ‘Twist’ will actually arrive in stores.  The series doesn’t even have an artist attached, meaning it probably won’t arrive until next year some time.

Are you intrigued by the idea of Whedon tackling a supernatural period piece?  Will you be picking up ‘Twist’ when it arrives?
