Borealis: Head to the Freezing Horrors of Alaska in New Dark Horse Series by Aaron Douglas
Dark Horse Comics presents a spine-chilling tale that will transport readers to the desolate and bone-chilling winters of Alaska. In this frozen wilderness, where temperatures plummet to seventy below zero, a hauntingly supernatural horror awaits.
Accomplished screen and comics writer Mark Verheiden, known for his work on The Mask, Daredevil TV series, Aliens, and Predator comics, joins forces with the talented writer/actor Aaron Douglas, renowned for his role in Battlestar Galactica, and exceptional creative team consisting of Cliff Richards, the acclaimed artist behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Wonder Woman, and colorist Guy Major, known for his work on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Blue Beetle series.
Embrace the chilling atmosphere of remote Qinu, Alaska, a place haunted by bad memories that Silaluk Osha, a dedicated Alaska State Trooper better known as Sil, left behind thirteen years ago. Trapped by a series of gruesome murders, Sil is drawn back to Qinu to confront her dark past and unravel the enigmatic and deadly legends that seem to have a personal connection to her. In Borealis, Verheiden and Douglas have crafted a story that not only captivates readers with its supernatural elements but also explores the inner demons that Sil must confront.
The creative minds behind Borealis have crafted a thrilling narrative, merging a gritty crime story and supernatural horror with the emotional journey of a woman confronting both figurative and literal monsters that haunt her. Both Verheiden and Douglas eagerly anticipate sharing the madness brought to life by Richards and Major with readers. This collaboration has been a long-awaited project for Verheiden and Douglas, friends for years, who have finally found the perfect opportunity to work together.
Aaron Douglas, thrilled to collaborate with Verheiden and bring their shared vision to life, is particularly excited to introduce Borealis to the world. Their creative synergy, along with the addition of Richards and Major, has fueled their passion for this project. Richards himself feels privileged to work on Borealis and is delighted by the opportunity to contribute to a supernatural horror/crime narrative. He hopes that readers will have as much fun immersing themselves in the pages as he did crafting them.
Prepare yourself for a chilling adventure into the darkness of Alaska’s frozen wilderness. Borealis will surely deliver a haunting and emotional journey of a woman confronting her past.
