Fresh off his run on Incredible Hulk, Greg Pak is headed for Hell. Okay, not really. But he is going to prison.
Okay, so maybe that’s not entirely true. It’s actually Pak’s new protagonist Sam Tinker who’s found himself in a very, very, very bad place and needs to claw his way out. But the Devil isn’t all fire and brimstone. There’s that key part of the prayer, “Lead us not into temptation.” That bit is going to play heavily with the wardens and inmates of Dead Man’s Run, a new series developed by The Walking Dead producer Gale Ann Hurd.
Aspen was sweet enough to send along a preview:
