Dynamite Entertainment has announced it has hired Gail Simone and Walter Geovani to bring readers an all-new tale featuring The Death-Defying Devil.

In this yarn inspired by Rod Serling, Bronze Age horror/mystery anthologies, and modern street-level heroics, the ‘Devil finds himself beaten and bloodied in the backyard of a ramshackle apartment building. The diverse cast of tenants take him in and across each issue they are explored in-depth. Each has their own unique problems, while a strange force also menaces the building as a whole. The ‘Devil makes it his mission to solve all of these puzzles, even when he learns that one of his new neighbors is a traitor.

“I have been fascinated by the Death Defying ‘Devil since I first saw him on the cover of Jim Steranko’s History of Comics. I had no idea who he was, but something about him looked menacing and compelling,” said writer Gail Simone. “Later, I got to read more of the stories and they feel like a precursor to the modern street-level heroes we have today. The guy throws razor boomerangs, how cool is that? And I love working with Walter, he’s one of my most trusted artists. He can draw anything, but superheroes are his favorite and he’s never gotten to draw them!”

The Death-Defying Devil is scheduled for an August 2019 release.
