Writer Paul Maybury and artist Sam Lotfi will expose the horror that lives on Boston’s subway line in a new miniseries for Dark Horse Comics, Last Stop on the Red Line. Colorist John Rauch and letterer Adam Pruett will help bring this horror to light.
“Subterranean shivery beneath the cold streets of Boston awaits,” Maybury said in the press release. “As a native son, I’ve yearned to tell a story of the other side of the city, seldom portrayed. Real people contending with dissonant visions that convey a reality worse than their darkest nightmares.”
Per the press release, “Last Stop on the Red Line follows detective Migdalia Torres through an investigation of a brutal strangling on a Boston subway car. There are no leads. Any potential evidence turns up nothing but dead ends. That is until Torres stumbles upon a vagrant named Yusef who might just have a supernatural connection to the unsolved crime.”
This sounds like a fun change of pace for Maybury, who is probably better known as an artist or for drawing his own stories. Lotfi has an impressive resume that includes both comics and video games, and he was one of the folks features in DC’s New Talent Showcase 2017. The four-issue miniseries kicks off in May.
