You may have heard of the upcoming film adaptation of R.I.P.D., the Dark Horse comic book about dead cops who solve supernatural crimes for the beyond-the-grave Rest In Peace Department.
And come November, the publisher is returning to the R.I.P.D. universe with R.I.P.D.: City of the Damned, a miniseries that sees the series' spectral officers on a new case. Courtesy of Dark Horse, here's an exclusive preview of City of the Damned's plot and art:
R.I.P.D.: CITY OF THE DAMNED #1 (of 4)
Peter Lenkov (W), Jeremy Barlow (W), Tony Parker (A), and Dave Wilkins (Cover)
Roy Pulsipher and Nick Walker are dead, but that doesn't mean their time in law enforcement is over. Both Roy and Nick are officers in the Rest in Peace Department, sworn to serve the Almighty and protect the living from evil's foul corruption. Their current case has them chasing a ghostly fanatic determined to undo all of creation-a threat with very personal connections to Roy's past, stretching back a hundred years into a weird, Wild West and Roy's first day on the job. It's a twisted history that Nick is only starting to uncover, and one that could have him reconsidering ever joining the R.I.P.D.!
• Prequel to the upcoming feature film starring Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges!
• The return of the hit series by Peter M. Lenkov (Hawaii Five-O, Demolition Man).
• Co-written by Jeremy Barlow (Dethklok) and drawn by Tony Parker (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?)
