The Wicked + The Devine creator Keiron Gillen is teaming up with Stephanie Hans for the upcoming horror series Die. The role-playing game culture gets turned on its head when a group of forty-something adults get back together to face off an evil they encountered as teens. The group disappeared as teenagers during a role-playing game, only to be found later, all of them unwilling talk about what happened to them. Gillen calls it ‘Goth Jumanji’, but there’s plenty of opportunity to dive into some deeply disturbing territory here, all of it ripe with horror potential. The series is set to release 5 December 2018 from Image Comics and also features lettering by Clayton Cowles.
