We’ve covered each issue of DC Comics’ horror imprint Hill House Comics and we’re both excited and horrified for the newest entry. What happens when you combine horror icon Joe Hill (Basketful of Heads, Locke & Key), the return of legendary artist Stuart Immonen (Superman: Secret Identity), covers by Jeremy Wilson, variant covers by Gary Frank, the tension of deep sea exploration, mysterious cargo and the innate fear of sharks, together in one package? You get the next spine-tingling launch from DC’s Hill House Comics: Plunge.
In the aftermath of a devastating tsunami, an exploration vessel known as the Derleth begins sending an automated distress signal from a remote atoll in the Bering Strait. The only problem is that the Derleth has been missing for 40 years. Marine biologist Moriah Lamb joins the Carpenter Salvage team to recover the Derleth’s dead…only to find that in this remote part of the Arctic Circle the dead have plenty to say to the living…
Plunge #1 is written by Joe Hill, with art by Stuart Immonen, colors by Dave Stewart, letters by Deron Bennett, cover by Jeremy Wilson, and a variant cover by Gary Frank. It’ in shops February 19, 2020 with final orders due January 27, 2020.
