Award-winning imprint of BOOM! Studios, Archaia will release a new horror series entitled Plunder. This February, writer, Swifty Lang (Feeding Ground) will team up with artist Skuds McKinley to bring us a terrifying thriller. The story will focus on a gang of Somali pirates who find themselves trapped in the middle of a massacre, after they face off with an illegal Chinese vessel. Their only hope is the 14-year-old boy aboard the ship, who can translate for them.
BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon describes the story as:
…a visceral horror story that has a killer setup and a flat-out intense narrative. Step on board for a wild journey!
The story has been described as a combination of the movies Captain Phillips and The Thing. If that's true, then we are really in for a crazy wild ride. The plot sounds super fierce, and I can already feel my heart pounding with anticipation. I'm really curious to meet this 14-year-old character. Both covers feature a kraken-like creature, creepy enough to send a chill down my spine. It looks like it's going to be a beautifully detailed, spectacular book. Plunder #1 arrives in comic shops on February 18th.
