Image Comics announce first “The Dead Hand” collection coming this October
This October, Image Comics will collect the first six issues of their hit series The Dead Hand in a trade paperback titled The Dead Hand, Vol. 1: Cold War Relics. The premise is intriguing enough (after the fall of the Soviet Union, a former intelligence operative discovers a secret that changes the course of history), but even more than that is the insanely stacked creative team behind the book: Kyle Higgins, Stephen Mooney, Jordie Bellaire, and Clayton Cowles. That’s, like, a rock and roll supergroup of comics talent right there. Check out the details below.
THE DEAD HAND, VOL. 1: COLD WAR RELICS TRADE PAPERBACK IS A SUSPENSEFUL ESPIONAGE READ
PORTLAND, OR, 06/21/2018 — The first story arc of the critically acclaimed new Cold War espionage thriller THE DEAD HAND—by writer Kyle Higgins (C.O.W.L., HADRIAN’S WALL, Power Rangers), artist Stephen Mooney (Half Past Danger), and Eisner Award-winning colorist Jordie Bellaire (REDLANDS)—will be collected into trade paperback and available this October. THE DEAD HAND, VOL. 1: COLD WAR RELICS will include issues #1-6 of the series.
THE DEAD HAND, VOL. 1 follows Carter Carlson, who was a highly decorated operative during the Cold War. But in the Fall of 1991, as the Soviet Union collapsed, Carter discovered a secret that not only changed his life… but also altered the course of history. Now, as the mysterious “Dead Hand” threatens to end the world once again, the only thing standing in its way is the relationship between four old spies, a secret town, and a special little boy.
The Dead Hand, Vol. 1: Cold War Relics hits comic shops on October 3 and other retailers on October 9.
