Mad Cave Studios is excited to announce the six-issue Sci-fi/Pulp Adventure series Project Riese, written by critically-acclaimed writer Zac Thompson (The Dregs), art and cover by Jeff McComsey (FUBAR), with colors by Paul Little and letters by Justin Birch.
It’s 1952. The wound WWII inflicted on the world is still fresh. Sam Safdie and his ragtag group of treasure hunters have been searching for the fabled map of the Owl Mountains for years…and they finally found it. Their journey leads them to a massive war complex that hides both unknown horrors and a fortune in gold. However, the deeper they travel, the more they realize the complex has developed a life of its own and that some secrets are better left buried in the past.
“Project Riese is an adventure story that harkens back to the heyday of weird pulp stories,” said Zac Thompson. “Featuring a cast of characters and sights that feel pulled from the pages of old pulp serials. It’s a weird war story where our POV characters aren’t soldiers or secret agents, but ostensibly normal people caught up in strange circumstances. They’re not looking for glory… but they are looking for a fortune. When Mad Cave approached me for this series, I just couldn’t resist the opportunity to create something with modern themes in this space. If you love the Indiana Jones series, Bioshock, or the most recent Wolfenstien games – you should really dig Project Riese!”
“Project Riese combines just about all the things I like to watch and read about in my fiction,” said Jeff McComsey. “I hope folks have as much fun reading it as I had drawing it.”
“Zac and Jeff have created a classic WWII-era adventure comic that’s equal parts Where Eagles Dare, Indiana Jones and Hellboy, and I’m excited to help bring their adventure to life,” said colorist Paul Little.
