by Matt & Sharlene Kindt
On Sale: April 20, 2016
Beginning April 20, Matt and Sharlene Kindt present DEPT. H, a riveting, undersea locked-room murder mystery. Each issue of the monthly series from Dark Horse Comics covers a period of 24 hours and follows the exploits of Mia, a special investigator hired to uncover the truth about what happened at a deep-sea research station. What she discovers is a mind-blowing crime scene filled with suspects with terrible secrets, strange deep-sea creatures…. and an impending flood.
The smartest man in the world has been murdered. Six miles deep in the ocean, there are seven suspects with compelling motives. A woman with her own connections to the victim is dispatched to the depths to solve the case. No one is safe.
Inspired by his love of Jacque Cousteau, Jules Verne, CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON and James Bond underwater action scenes, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling creator Matt Kindt collaborates for the first time on an ongoing series with his wife, Sharlene, who colors Kindt’s pages with evocative water colors. Together they’ve created a smart, pulpy adventure, one of the most anticipated new ongoing titles of 2016 and a worthy successor to Kindt’s critically acclaimed, bestselling MIND MGMT. We invite you to dive in.
