AfterShock Comics will publish the book, marking the first collaboration between the publisher and Milligan. The story involves a protagonist who has his “life hanging by a thread,” and he must use his astral projection to try to figure out who it was who tried to kill him. Reading deeper into the preview text, there is also a “beautiful mystic” helping him, as well as “a demon who seems to be Dorian Gray.”
Sounds like a great mix of narrative elements. You can read the full preview text below, with five interior pages from the first issue, which is due out June 2. Enjoy!
