Image Comics has announced Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine) is teaming with artist Stephanie Hans for Die, an all-new series arriving in December.

DIE is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of adults have to deal with the returning unearthly horror they barely survived as teenage role-players.

β€œIt’s worryingly zeitgeisty. Role-playing games are part of the cultural conversation in a way they haven’t been since the 1980s,” said Gillen in an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter. β€œI suspect DIE is going to sit a little apart from most of it, especially the comics. Most of the D&D comics either are straight satires or leaning into the fun and games of those memories. We’re a lot bleaker. It’s me, so it’s still playful, but I take fantasy games as seriously as I take pop music and this is a product of that.”

This is rather interesting as Robert Kirkman did a surprise launch of Die!Die!Die! last month, which makes me wonder who will release Die Die at the publisher.

Regardless, Die is scheduled to arrive on December 5th, 2018.
