Some of the conspiracy theories out there are true! The grassy knoll? Check! The Roswell crash? Check! The Philadelphia Experiment? Check! Even better/worse, the same secret society was behind them all!
Now members of the group are being killed and in order to stop the killing they have to find out who’s behind it – and why they’re doing it.
Dark Horse Comics announced Cryptocracy – from writer Van Jensen (The Flash, Green Lantern Corps) and artist Pete Woods (Action Comics) – this morning, along with another Jensen title, Two Dead (with artist Nate Johnson, March) at New York Comic Con 2015. Follow the jump for details.
NYCC 2015: VAN JENSEN BRINGS ALL-NEW PROJECTS TO DARK HORSE
DARK HORSE TO PUBLISH JENSEN’S CREATOR-DRIVEN ORIGINAL SERIES IN 2016
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MILWAUKIE, OR—In 2016, fan-favorite Green Lantern Corps and The Flash scribe Van Jensen brings a new lineup of creator-driven original series to Dark Horse Comics—and you won’t believe what he plans to tackle first.
They were the gunmen on the grassy knoll. They conducted the Philadelphia Experiment. They found the ship that crashed in Roswell—and its pilots. They allowed the Japanese to attack Pearl Harbor. They faked the moon landing.
For ages, they have worked in the shadows, controlling the fate of the world. But now, they are being hunted.
In Cryptocracy, Jensen teams with Action Comics artist Pete Woods for a deep exploration into the secret society behind every major conspiracy in history—and why they’re suddenly being killed. Coming May 2016, the series combines Jensen’s profound story with Woods’s dynamic art for a story that shouldn’t be missed.
Then, in September 2016, Jensen gets back to his roots as a crime reporter for Two Dead, a collaboration with legendary March artist Nate Powell.
On a snowy New Year’s Day, 1947, in Little Rock, Arkansas, Police Chief O. N. Martin gunned down his lieutenant, Jack Deubler, and then killed himself. The threads of crime, conspiracy, violence, racism, and madness that led to this tragic true-crime case of murder-suicide are retraced in Two Dead, which follows in the footsteps of true-crime epics such as Green River Killer.
Look forward to seeing these new stories in 2016!
