Says Kindt

I’ve never written a story in the horror genre before. Real life is already so full of it. This is the most grounded thing I’ve ever written. And as a result, it’s definitely the most horrific. I apologize in advance.

Dark Horse Comics will debut the first issue of Fear Case on February 3, 2021 featuring a standard cover by series artist Tyler Jenkins and variant covers by Francisco Francavilla and Duncan Fegredo. The second printing variant of issue 1, featuring an all new cover by Andrea Sorrentino, will drop on February 10th, 2020, in order to meet the high demand from comic book stores and readers.
