Matt Kindt, Tyler Jenkins and Hilary Jenkins, who created Dark Horse’s history-spanning Fear Case, will venture into the jungles of Vietnam for their next miniseries from the publisher, Apache Delivery Service.
The horror story involves the search for Nazi gold during the Vietnam War — which, rumor has it, is guarded by witches. Kindt said the story is “easily the most unsettling story I’ve written and for-sure the creepiest art I’ve seen Tyler and Hilary come up with.”
Here’s how Dark Horse describes the title:
In the jungles of Vietnam, two men are on the hunt for a cache of missing gold from World War II. The men follow a trail of mysteriously mutilated corpses as they navigate through jungle, war and a maze of caves. Can these men trust each other? Is there a serial killer on the loose? And is there truth to the rumors – that a clan of ancient witches is guarding the missing Nazi gold?
“I have been wanting to make a book set during and in the Vietnam War for a really long time; it is such an interesting period. This book has been a joy to work on. Matt’s scripts are intense and subtle and delivers a rather grim ride into hell,” Jenkins said.
The first issue of four arrives Jan. 5.
