Just a little shy of a month from now, Matt and Sharlene Kindt’s newest creator-owned series Dept. H will be hitting comic book shelves courtesy of Dark Horse Comics.

In anticipation of the release, Dark Horse has given us an in-depth look including the final cover for the first issue, a trailer, and preview pages!

Dept. H is being billed as a riveting, undersea locked-room murder mystery. Each issue of the monthly series will cover a period of 24 hours and follows the exploits of Mia, a special investigator hired to uncover the truth about what happened at a deep-sea research station. What she discovers is a mind-blowing crime scene with suspects with terrible secrets, strange deep-sea creaturs…and an impending flood.

The smartest man in the world has been murdered. Six miles deep in the ocean, there are seven suspects with compelling motives. A woman with her own connections to the victim is dispatched to the depths to solve the case. No one is safe.

Inspired by his love of Jacque Cousteau, Jules Verne, CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON and James Bond underwater action scenes, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling creator Matt Kindt collaborates for the first time on an ongoing series with his wife, Sharlene, who colors Kindt’s pages with evocative water colors.

Dept. H (FEB160017) hits comic book shelves on April 20, 2016.
