The MAN-EATERS team is back! Coming this September 2nd, Dark Horse Comics will publish the debut issue of the highly anticipated series SPY ISLAND by New York Times best-selling author Chelsea Cain, artists Elise McCall and Lia Miternique, colorist Rachelle Rosenberg and letterer Joe Caramagna.
SPY ISLAND is the third comic book series by NYT bestselling novelist Chelsea Cain. Her previous two comics (Man-Eaters/Image, Mockingbird/Marvel) received multiple Eisner nominations, including last year’s Best New Comic Book Series.
Cain and Miternique are co-founders of The Ministry of Trouble. The co-creators have put their all into this Bermuda Triangle spy-mystery miniseries and appear to be having a lot of fun doing it.
“I’m endlessly amazed by the work of our amazing creative team, and everyone at Dark Horse. In the end, we make the stories we want to read. And if Chelsea and I are able to crack each other up, we know we’re on the right track. And we crack each other up a lot.” —Lia Miternique
“Every word of this comic book is true. We want to thank the Bermuda Triangle Chamber of Commerce for access to historical archives.” —Chelsea Cain
