Dark Horse has announced a new sci-fi miniseries debuting in March by Justin Giampaoli, Andrea Mutti, Vladimir Popov, and Sal Cipriano called Starship Down. The series sees a woman discover an alien ship in Siberia, sparking a conspiracy-themed ruckus as the origin of humankind is rewritten.

Check out the press release below, and look for the comic in Dark Horse's March solicitation. Starship Down #1 hits stores on March 18th.

MILWAUKIE, Ore. (December 18, 2019), Creators Justin Giampaoli (Thirteen Minutes), Andrea Mutti (Rebels), alongside colorist Vladimir Popov (Relics of Youth), and letterer Sal Cipriano (Invisible Kingdom), bring you the new sci-fi miniseries Starship Down.

Starship Down follows cultural anthropologist Jocelyn Young after the earth-shattering discovery of an extraterrestrial ship buried deep under the ice of Siberia.

As she consults with US Naval Intelligence on the investigation, meddling Russians, Vatican officials, media spotlight, and her own insecurities threaten her efforts to keep the fabric of society from crumbling as mankind discovers its startling origin.

"Starship Down is a sci-fi drama that was truly an exercise in "write the type of story you want to read." The heart of the story is really about finding your true place in the world, in a way that's not bound by what's come before.

Dark Horse is such a welcoming publisher, home of so many daring and off-beat genre mashups. It seemed like the perfect place for a fun thriller full of rich social issues to examine and Andrea is a dream collaborator with a true eye for sci-fi. He understands that attention to detail helps sell the world, but he also delivers the type of raw emotion and humanity that readers need to connect with in order to care."—Justin Giampaoli

"Starship Down is the sum of many narrative aspects that I love: history, science fiction, technology, myths, legends and religion … joined with adventure and the solid presence of non-two-dimensional characters. It remains pure entertainment but touches very profound social and emotional aspects, a fine example of how a comic can range and touch themes of a certain level."—Andrea Mutti

Starship Down #1 (of four) arrives March 18, 2020 and is available for pre-order at your local comic shop now.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
