Top Cow has partnered once again with Texas game company EP1T0ME Studios on a new horror miniseries Revolvers in October, it was announced today.

Revolvers will be a four-issue limited series written by John Zuur Platten, illustrated by Christian DiBari and colored by Simon Gough. It will release in comic shops and digital platforms October 5 and come in two cover variants.

The story of Revolvers, according to the press release,

“…introduces Hampton Wales, a Detroit homicide detective trapped in a mysterious and violent alternate reality, struggling to solve his own, seemingly mundane, murder.”

Top Cow has previously partnered with EP1T0ME Studios on titles St. Mercy and The Clay People: Colossus, of which John Zuur Platten served as writer on the former and artist Christian DiBari worked on the latter.

Platten, who conceived the project, discusses it further:

“I had this idea for the Moratorium, a purgatory wherein the dead, the Revolvers, descend from humans to demonic creatures each time around the Gyre. EP1T0ME let me go dark; I had a blast weaving Hampton’s twisted story through his sordid cast of characters and overlaying today’s Detroit with a more hellish version of it.”

Series artist, Christian DiBari:

Revolvers is hands down the darkest horror book I’ve done yet. It’s got a bit of that Michael Mann crime neo-noir and a lot of Clive Barker‘s Hellraiser.  The world that John and I are creating is definitely a crazy one; I can’t wait for Top Cow fans to check it out!”

EP1T0ME’s President, Richard Leibowitz, weighed in:

“As a videogame company, we set out to create a concept for a competitive first-person hero shooter with a dark horror setting.  As usual, JZP nailed the characters, setting and story; it’s amazing to watch Christian bring Hampton, La Piton, Big Mike, Cali and the rest, including Detroit, to life in the comic.”

Writer John Zuur Platten has a chronicled career in the videogame space. His IMDB profile lists him having worked as a writer and designer of “over sixty projects”, including Fear Effect and the Chronicles of Riddick games.

Christian DiBari is a horror artist who has produced work for Top Cow and Image including 2014’s Cutter, the 2017 Magdalena series and this year’s The Clay People: Colossus one-shot.
