Boston native Paul Maybury is revisiting his hometown and exploring the idea of supernatural creatures living in the city's underground. In the new Dark Horse series Last Stop on the Red Line, Maybury and artist Sam Lotfi (along with colorist John Rauch and letterer Adam Pruett) are working on what they call a "psycho-thriller horror mystery."
"Subterranean shivery beneath the cold streets of Boston awaits," Maybury said. "As a native son, I’ve yearned to tell a story of the other side of the city, seldom portrayed. Real people contending with dissonant visions that convey a reality worse than their darkest nightmares."
Last Stop on the Red Line centers on police detective Migdalia Torres as she investigates a brutal strangling on a Boston Metro subway car. Without any leads on who committed the crime, a chance meeting with a vagrant named Yusef puts her on the trail of supernatural activity under the City on the Hill.
Last Stop on the Red Line #1 (of 4) is scheduled to debut May 8.
