Sometimes you hear a description and you just know a comic is for you. That's what I felt when I heard about Dead Man's Hand, described as a Lovecraftian, neo-noir, horror story. Currently on Kickstarter from indie publisher Lawdog Comics, the comic is written and illustrated by James Heffron. The Kickstarter campaign, which has already surpassed its funding goal, will fund the publishing, marketing and distribution of the series' first issue.

Dead Man’s Hand is a Lovecraftian, neo-noir, horror story that follows an ordinary man, with an ordinary life, a courier on a routine delivery to a city hotel, who suddenly wakes to find his entire life now in service to those who operate in darkness. A secret society with an agenda millennia in the making. A man who must now follow in the footsteps of countless others who have taken this journey and perished along it’s darkened path. And then there’s one surgically grafted appendage, one steeped in the darkest of arcane lore, which may or may not hold the key to the fate of all mankind.

“Urban legends. Things that give us that quick tingle up the spine. We hear them, shudder at the possibility, but then dismiss them as “this doesn’t ever actually happen…right?”” says Heffron. “One of these legends I’ve long given thought about is Kidney theft. Person is drugged. Wakes up in an icy bath, bloody sutures on their back from an unsterile surgery with a note, “call 911 if you want to live.” Has it happened? I sure hope not, but the thought of it gave creative birth to this story. A tale that takes the root of it and twists it into something far more sinister.”

Rewards for the Dead Man's Hand Kickstarter campaign include digital and physical copies of the comic itself, prints, key chains, playing card sets and more. It runs through September 13th, 2020.
