Get Your First Look at Post-Cold War Spy Thriller <i>The Dead Hand</i>

Writer Kyle Higgins has devoted a good chunk of the last few years to spearheading BOOM! Studios’ Power Rangers empire, but that hasn’t prevented him from cultivating a string of creator-owned Image Comics series. C.O.W.L. introduced a superhero labor union, Hadrian’s Wall unfurled a space-set murder mystery and, beginning in April, The Dead Hand kicks off a post-Cold War saga in which the relationship between an old spy and a young boy is the only thing standing in the way of a world-ending plot. Brought to tense, tactical life by artist Stephen Mooney (Half Past Danger, Grayson), colorist Jordie Bellaire (Redlands, Vision) and letterer Clayton Cowles (Star Wars, Mister Miracle), The Dead Hand launches April 11, and Paste has an exclusive first look at interior pages below.

But in the fall of 1991, as the Soviet Union collapsed, Carter discovered a secret that not only changed his life…but also altered the course of history. Now, as the mysterious “Dead Hand” threatens to end the world once again, the only thing standing in its way is the relationship between an old spy and a little boy.
