“The Dead Hand mixes my love of historical fiction and huge action into one of the biggest stories I’ve ever written. It’s Metal Gear Solid, James Bond, and John le Carré all mixed into one comic,” said Higgins. “The end of the Cold War is an incredibly fascinating era—the proliferation of weapons and scientists from the Soviet Union, the complicated relationships between countries, the introduction of capitalism in Russia… it’s a great backdrop for a story about the end of the world.”
Mooney added: “I’m hugely excited to be embarking on this thrilling Cold War journey with Kyle, Jordie, and Clayton. The Dead Hand is exactly the type of sci-fi tinged espionage book I love as a reader, and I can’t wait for people to take a first step into this murky world. Be careful who you trust!”
