If you’re a serial comics fan then early 2021 is already shaping up as a launching pad for a number of impressive looking new releases. Here’s news of yet another one this week as Fear Case debuts from Dark Horse Comics. Full details below.
A Horrific New Thriller That Pits Spies Against the Occult
From the minds of Matt Kindt (BANG!, Crimson Flower), Tyler Jenkins (Neverboy, Grass Kings), and Hilary Jenkins (King of Nowhere, Black Badge) comes Fear Case, a new, horrific detective series. The Eisner-award nominated team behind Grass Kings is teaming up once again, this time to strike fear—and intrigue—into the hearts of readers.
“I’ve never written a story in the horror genre before. Real life is already so full of it. This is the most grounded thing I’ve ever written. And as a result, it’s definitely the most horrific. I apologize in advance.” –Matt Kindt
“Once again, working with Matt is exactly as it should be between collaborators. The projects we build are a pure joy to work on.” –Tyler Jenkins
It is True Detective meets The Ring in Fear Case, as a no-nonsense Secret Service agent and his partner investigate a mysterious box known only as the “Fear Case,” which has appeared throughout history at sites of disaster and tragedy. Whoever comes into possession of this case must pass it on within three days or face deadly consequences. The agents must track down this Fear Case while staying one step ahead of a psychotic cult and the otherworldly forces behind the Case’s existence.
Fear Case #1 (of four) will be in comic shops on February 3, 2021. It is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.
