Dark Horse comics is set to release Dead Inside, a new series from John Arcudi and Toni Fejzula.
I really like crime fiction comics, as the nature of the tale can from from the comedic to the horribly awful. Dead Inside feels different than what we’ve seen before.
“It’s not often that I get to write crime fiction, because I worry I don’t have anything to add to the genre. This time I feel like I do. The more I read about jail crimes investigations, the more I knew I had to tell this story,” said Arcudi.
The Jail Crimes Division of the Sheriff’s Office in Mariposa County investigates crimes committed inside county jails. With a limited number of suspects who can’t escape, these are usually easy cases to solve—but not this one. As Detective Linda Caruso gets closer to the heart of the case, she discovers uncomfortable truths about her friends, her job, and herself.
The first issue of the five-issue mini-series is scheduled to arrive in stores on December 21, 2016, and will feature a cover by Dave Johnson.
