Valiant Entertainment has announced a new five-issue crime noir title set in San Francisco called The Final Witness. First reported by SyfyWire, The Final Witness follows four as yet unnamed people - a detective, an investigative journalist, an arsonist, and a new superhero - as they attempt the solve a murder.

Who was killed? That identity, too, is being kept secret by the publisher.

According to SyfyWire, series editor Heather Antos describes The Final Witness as Zodiac meets True Detective meets superheroes. She is keeping the creative team a secret for now - but says they are creators who she's been working for years to find the ideal Valiant title for.

"I wanted someone who had a strong understanding of pacing and tension, which make murder mysteries work, and we want the art to capture that gritty, real world vibe," Antos said. "If you're a fan of the stories that happen in Gotham, then you'll be interested in what we're doing here."

Valiant plans to share clues for the murder mystery not only in the comic book's pages, but also in special variant covers.

The Final Witness will reportedly debut in early 2020.
