Jamie McKelvie Launches The Killing Horizon with Matthew Wilson and Aditya Bidikar in the Summer of 2020
The Killing Horizon is the explosive new sci-fi vision from Jamie McKelvie, co-creator of the bestselling, award-winning The Wicked + The Divine, and Eisner Award winning colorist Matthew Wilson, launching from Image Comics in Summer 2020.
The project sees McKelvie return to writing for the first time in a decade, after establishing himself as both a popular artist of comics such as Young Avengers and designer of iconic superheroes including Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel and Loki.
The Killing Horizon takes place in the post-post-apocalyptic future. Far from Earth, a specialist in studying dead alien societies is embedded with a military unit to excavate a new find. She’s done it before. It’s good work and it’s safe. She thinks it’s just another job.
Lost and alone, deep beneath the warped, skeletal spires of the millennia-dead city, she finds something powerful. Something unlike anything any human has ever known. Something that needs her to take it on a journey no living being has ever taken. Something that will make her a target for every side fighting a deadly war. It calls to her.
Joining the established partnership of McKelvie and Wilson are letterer Aditya Bidikar, designer Cecile Richard, and editor Katie West.
