Acclaimed The Recount writer Jonathan Hedrick continues to prove he knows how to put together a captivating story in this The Thing meets Starship Troopers miniseries. Quicksand is everything we could ask for in a sci-fi/horror comic with giant bugs, action, twists, plus outstanding art.
After a mysterious hole opens in the Egyptian desert, horrific creatures climb out and wreak havoc on a nearby city. They retreat as quickly as they arrived, leaving the planet in shock by this unfathomable event. A team of elite specialists from around the globe called “Canary One” are sent after the monsters to discover more about them. But when the crew never returns, the world must prepare for the possibility of another wave of attacks.
Many readers and listeners of Capes and Tights know we are big fans of The Recount and when Hedrick has a new project coming are ears tend to perk up. We were not let down with Quicksand. Hedrick continues to give us great stories with action and horror that pushes us to the edge of our seats.
On Quicksand, Hedrick partnered up with artist Debora Lancianese and colorist Sunil Ghagre to give us a beautiful comic from front to back. Add to the fold, we get wonderful letters from Hedrick go-to Cristian Docolomansky.
Horror, sci-fi, creatures, and human interest comes all in one package with this miniseries.
