Dive deeper into the mysterious world of Matt Kindt with If You Find This, I’m Already Dead, a new multi-dimensional cosmic odyssey written by Kindt (Subgenre, Mind MGMT, BRZRKR), illustrated by Dan McDaid (Dega, Sea Dogs), colored by Bill Crabtree, and lettered by Jim Campbell. If You Find This, I’m Already Dead is presented in magazine-sized issues (8” x 10.875”) with exclusive behind-the-scenes backmatter. Arriving in February 2024, issue #1 will include a variant cover illustrated by Brian Hurtt, with future issues featuring cover art by Sumeyye Kesgin and Alice Darrow.
Robin is a big city reporter, embedded with U.S. Marines heading to the hostile pocket universe called Terminus. Ten minutes in, the entire marine squad is wiped out and she has to survive (and report) on her own. Terminus is full of cosmic wonders–and sci-fi “gods” that are in the middle of a political power struggle. The language is alien, and the politics are deadly. Can she survive long enough to figure out what’s going on and get home to tell the story?
On the series, Kindt said, “If Moebius, Richard Corben, and Jack Kirby had a baby…well…they actually did. And it’s us.” And on the format,“We wanted to capture the great tradition of such great sci-fi magazines as Heavy Metal, Epic Magazine, and 1984 with a big scuzzy cosmic sci-fi story and format.”
If You Find This, I’m Already Dead #1 (of 3), arrives in comic shops on February 14, 2024. It is now available to pre-order for $7.99 at your local comic shop.
