In IDW Publishing’s new series Dead Seas, coming this December, ghosts are real and dangerous, but they’re also valuable, their ectoplasm capable of curing countless diseases.  There’s only one problem: harvesting their ectoplasm can be just as deadly.  Enter Gus Ortiz, a prisoner willing to take the risk in return for a reduced sentence—anything to see his daughter again.  All it will take is a few months at sea scraping ectoplasm off the walls of the Perdition, a floating prison containing the most vicious ghosts on Earth.  But here are even more terrors for Gus to worry about in this Lovecraftian horror adventure.

From the mind of Star Wars comics writer Cavan Scott and Scot Star Wars artist Nick Brokenshire, Dead Seas is an original story coming to comic shops monthly.  Take a look inside the first issue in this preview, courtesy of IDW Publishing:

It’s being marketed as The Poseidon Adventure meets The Haunting of Hill House.  Dead Seas #1 will be available with three variant covers for fans and retailers to enjoy, including Cover A by Nick Brokenshire, Cover B by Scott’s Star Wars: The High Republic collaborator Ario Anindito, and Cover C by Frazer Irving (Batman & Robin).  Add it to your pull list at Elite Comics or your local comic shop now.
