Dark Horse is bringing Panini's Highway to Hell to America this coming September with Hellbound. Victor Gischler (Angel & Faith), Davide Dileo, and Riccardo Burchielli (DMZ), will release a graphic novel version that promises to bring a whole new level of horror to English-speaking audiences. Reminiscent of True Detective and From Hell, Hellbound follows the story of two disgraced FBI agents sent to investigate murders along the highway, but what they discover is way more complicated than anything they could've imagined.
Writer Victor Gischler spoke about working with Dark Horse:
I've had nothing but good times with Dark Horse, and considering their fantastic track record with horror, I'm thrilled they are bringing Hellbound to an American readership.
It seems like writers have nothing but good things to say about working with Dark Horse, which is fantastic to hear in this creator-driven market. Suspenseful murder mystery type books truly never get old, and the fact that they are bringing this series to the U.S. is smart. It's hard for an English-speaking audience to find much of anything about Panini's Highway to Hell series that isn't written in Spanish. Looking at the cover (designed by superstar artist Lee Bermejo), I'm already sufficiently creeped out. So I can only imagine what crazy things are contained throughout the pages of this graphic novel. Hellbound will be available for $17.99 and can be preordered from Amazon.com.
