Pisces Features Future Visions


Vietnam is a dark chapter in the history of the US. The atrocities committed by the States on behalf of the many citizens who felt there was no reason to be there were many and engendered all manner of bad memories for those who were there. Image Comics is tapping into some of those visions in Pisces, with Kurtis J. Wiebe and Johnnie Christmas teaming up for an all-new science fiction, psychological body horror series in PISCES, coming to Image Comics/Shadowline this April.

"Pisces is a monster created from my deepest physical and psychological fears,” said Wiebe. “It's a series I've been afraid to write. This is me facing my demons.”

Pisces introduces readers to former fighter pilot Dillon Carpenter, who found everything he wanted when he returned from the Vietnam War. A loving partner, a dream career training with NASA to travel through space, and soon, he will learn, a prime candidate for a secret mission, one that will forever change the world: First Contact. But as Dillon prepares, his war trauma returns and he’s haunted by dark visions of his future. There is but one constant: the voice whispering from the stars.

Christmas added: "Surreal, horrifying and beautiful, Pisces is part lullaby and part nightmare, wrapped within a pulse-pounding voyage of discovery."

Pisces #1 will hit stores on April 29 and can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code FEB150484. Full press release below.
