“Kill All Immortals is my tenth creator-owned series to date and I am so freaking thrilled to return to Dark Horse Comics,” said creator Zack Kaplan. “a publisher that is a pinnacle for supernatural action comics, from Hellboy to Black Hammer. And I’m stoked to be joined in combat by this team of immortal and cutthroat comic warriors, Fico Ossio, Jordie Bellaire, Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, Oliver Barrett, Tom Muller, and the entire Dark Horse family, all ready to bring this series to life.”
A thousand years ago, Viking explorer Erik the Red and his four adult children discovered a mysterious source of immortality. In our modern world, they are an enigmatic billionaire family with a powerful banking empire. But when Erik’s only daughter, Frey Asvald, seeks freedom from her family’s influence, she must be prepared to reveal their supernatural secrets and confront her well-trained siblings in a deadly and epic struggle for power.
Kaplan had more to say: “It’s action-packed, character-driven family drama combined with a supernatural/sci-fi adventure that draws from Viking lore and personas. But we’re taking our immortal Vikings and twisting them, bringing them into the luxurious, modern world of globalist billionaires and generational wealth. In our own world, we’ve come to accept that we live in a time where a very few secret and affluent individuals control and own almost everything, an immortal institution of dominance propelled by violence. What is required to change this never-ending cycle? We’re about to find out because now, one of their own is turning the tables. Frey Asvald is fearless, heartfelt and leaps off the page – if you like action heroines like Erika Slaughter, you will love Frey Asvald! Fico and Jordie absolutely kill it on these pages, and we can’t wait for you all to join us in the world of Kill All Immortals!”
Featuring fantastic fight sequences and breathtaking, immersive artwork, the violent story of Vikings, family, and the choices we make to break the bonds that hold us back culminates in a visceral battle when Kill All Immortals #1 arrives in comic shops on February 21, 2024.
