Wiebe and Christmas Spin a New Sci-Fi, Horror Tale.

A VIETNAM VET IS HAUNTED BY THE PAST, PLAGUED WITH VISIONS OF THE FUTURE IN PISCES


Bestselling writer Kurtis J. Wiebe (Rat Queens and Peter Panzerfraust) and Johnnie Christmas (Sheltered) team up for an all-new science fiction, psychological body horror series in *PISCES*, coming to Image Comics/Shadowline this April.

PISCES introduces readers to former fighter pilot Dillon Carpenter, who found everything he wanted when he returned from the Vietnam War. A loving partner, a dream career training with NASA to travel through space, and soon, he will learn, a prime candidate for a secret mission, one that will forever change the world: First Contact.

But as Dillon prepares, his war trauma returns and he’s haunted by dark visions of his future. There is but one constant: the voice whispering from the stars.

"Pisces is a monster created from my deepest physical and psychological fears,” said Wiebe. “It's a series I've been afraid to write. This is me facing my demons.”

Christmas added: "Surreal, horrifying and beautiful, Pisces is part lullaby and part nightmare, wrapped within a pulse-pounding voyage of discovery."
