For over two years bestselling writers Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt, and artist David Rubín have worked in secret on an all-new, original graphic novel. The book, titled Cosmic Detective, is an epic science fiction mystery that asks: when a God is murdered, who solves the crime?
In Cosmic Detective, a God is found dead. Foul play is suspected. But who investigates the murder of a god? Not just anyone, that’s for damn sure. Enter our Detective. He’s got a wife, a kid, and a seemingly normal day job as a private eye. But for years, he’s been working for a secret underground cabal of shadowy figures, an organization committed to an uneasy alliance with cosmic forces beyond our imagining.
In Cosmic Detective, the murder of the god threatens to unhinge the gods and tear apart the very fabric of our reality. Only our detective stands in the way of utter destruction. But will the mystery he uncovers be worse than the disaster he’s trying to avert? And will his mind crack under the revelations he’s about to uncover before he can do anything about it?
Cosmic Detective will be presented in an oversized, deluxe format hardcover (8 ¾ x 11/58”), offering readers an immersive experience, with full-color art and multiple bombastic gatefold pages of art and story. This Kickstarter exclusive edition will include features that will not be available anywhere else after the Kickstarter is over – including exclusive art made specifically for this limited-edition volume. The Cosmic Detective playing cards are also a Kickstarter exclusive.
