EXCLUSIVE: WORLD WAR II GETS LOVECRAFTIAN IN THE SECRET LAND

After frightening us with The Whispering Dark, writer Christofer Emgård and artist Tomás Aira are ready to do it again with The Secret Land, a new cosmic horror four-issue mini-series debuting in June from Dark Horse Comics. The comic provides a fictionalized reimagining of World War II that will shake you to your very core.

It is 1945, and Hitler is dead. Ben and Katherine are supposed to be together, happy. Instead, Ben fights the war in the Pacific with reckless heroism, believing his fiancée to be dead. However, Katherine lives, undercover aboard a German submarine.
 
As Ben tries to move on, the US Navy receives a message. The Nazis are plotting their return, powered by strange and foreboding technology in Antarctica. When Ben learns Katherine is there, he knows he must go too.
 
As war engulfs the edge of the world, Ben and Katherine confront the truth about the boundaries of love, and what lies beyond them.
 
“Ever since The Whispering Dark I’ve been looking to reprise my collaboration with Tomás, and The Secret Land finally provided the perfect opportunity. This mini-series began life as a pulpy horror tale (it does have both Nazis and tentacles in it…), but at its core it’s really a story about commitment, longing and loss. I feel Tomás has conveyed this beautifully through his evocative art and I hope the readers out there will feel the same.”—Christofer Emgård
 
“Chris' amazing script hooked me from day one and I was eager to flesh out these characters and continue building this terrifying world. Bringing the Otherlands to life has a strange fascination for me, and often I find myself fearful of the very monsters I'm painting, while adorning their abominable visage with teeth-covered appendices. There's probably no better place to set up the darkest monsters than in WW2 but this time, humanity has upped the game, I'm rooting for them as I draw them! “– Tomás Aira

The Secret Land #1 is set for release on June 9th, 2021.
