This Thursday another film director will make the leap from Hollywood to comics as John Moore (“BEHIND ENEMY LINES”, “THE OMEN”, “MAX PAYNE”) will release his newest work of fiction entitled “DEAD SOLDIER” partnered with Richie Smith and publishers Dynamite and Liquid Comics. The first issue in the series looks as if it will deliver in classic Moore fashion, and if you need proof then make the jump to check out the electrifying 5 page preview as well as the detailed synopsis. Read on for the skinny.
“From acclaimed filmmakers John Moore (Max Payne, Behind Enemy Lines and The Omen) and Richie Smyth, comes the story of Colonel John Donner, aka John Doe. It’s the last days of World War One – the Great War. On an obscure patch of mud, a small company of American soldiers fights to the last man against a powerful German offensive. John Doe is the only American survivor of the attack. He wanders alone for days amongst the maze of trenches and blast holes. Shellshocked, badly wounded and without food or medicine, he is lost. Through a twist of events, Donner is transformed into a creature of unthinkable power, a monster that pledges he will avenge the deaths of his fallen comrades, not only on the muddy battlefields of WWI, but across the generations to the slaughter-fields of the “War on Terror.” With abnormal strength and agility he hunts his enemies. But Donner’s actions have not gone unnoticed – and he will soon face an enemy from a place he could never have contemplated.”
