This fall, Dark Horse will publish Ruby Falls, a four-issue miniseries from the mind of Ann Nocenti, Flavia Biondi, Lee Loughridge, and Karen Berger. The multigenerational crime noir focuses on Lana, a woman who becomes obsessed with solving a cold case murder that was written off as a mere disappearance.

KILL TIME TILL TIME KILLS YOU IN RUBY FALLS
Ann Nocenti and Flavia Biondi’s New Series Available in October 2019
MILWAUKIE, Ore. (May 16, 2019)—From legendary writer Ann Nocenti (The Seeds, Daredevil), extraordinary new talent Flavia Biondi (Italian artist of La Generazione making her American comics debut), and acclaimed colorist Lee Loughridge (Olivia Twist, Briggs Land) comes Ruby Falls: a neo-noir tale of love, memory, and murder mysteriously woven through three generations of women, and hinging on their individual, intertwined fights for freedom. Ruby Falls, the new four-issue miniseries, is the latest addition to Karen Berger’s critically acclaimed imprint at Dark Horse Comics.
Ruby Falls is a sleepy town. But sleep brings nightmares, and 20-something Lana is about to wake up in the middle of her hometown’s biggest secret: the “disappearance" of Betty Gallagher, who was infamous for her progressive ways during the mobster-ruled heyday of this old mining town. The dim details of this cold-case murder are trapped in the mind of Lana’s grandmother Clara, who suffers from dementia. When Clara starts to share these deeply-buried, violent memories with her, Lana is hooked. She becomes obsessed with cracking the case, even if it means snapping the minds of everyone involved, splintering the peaceful town— and putting herself in grave danger.
Ruby Falls #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on October 2.
