“THE WHISPERING DARK” COMING IN OCTOBER 2018
New Series from Christofer Emgård and Tomás Aira Arrives at Dark Horse
Dark Horse Comics is pleased to announce a new series from writer Christofer Emgård (Mirror’s Edge: Exordium) and artist Tomás Aira (War Stories, Night of the Living Dead: Aftermath), The Whispering Dark. The Whispering Dark is the latest horror comic series added to Dark Horse’s historic line.
The Whispering Dark follows an Army pilot confronting a supernatural horror in this thriller in the tradition of Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness and Coppola’s Apocalypse Now! Hannah Vance believed her faith in God could survive anything. But when her helicopter is shot down behind enemy lines, she will fight and kill on an ever more savage battlefield, desperate for a way home. On the horizon, an evil waits for her—and freedom, of a sort.
The Whispering Dark #1 (of four-issues) goes on sale October 24, 2018. This comic is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.
