DAREDEVIL showrunner Steven S. DeKnight returns to comics with dark, supernatural thriller HARD DEAL

Former showrunner of Daredevil Steven S. DeKnight is returning to comics for a dark supernatural story he wants to tell from the title A tough deal.

In the thriller, “a detective races to solve a deadly mystery in the heart of Los Angeles before a horrible fate befalls everyone he touches. Frank Harding is a tough private investigator in 1940s Los Angeles who finds himself battling not only the usual group of criminals and good-for-nothings, but also occasional demons and other malevolent supernatural beings,” he continues. “While battling the forces of As darkness is another day at the office for Frank, his current case, tied to his past and Los Angeles’ all-too-real history of prejudice and discrimination, may be the one that puts Frank out of business…forever. “

DeKnight is developing the original comic with artist Leno Carvalho, colorist Bruno Hang and letterer Troy Peteri.

DeKnight shared in a statement, “Hard Bargain has been a dream thirty years in the making. An idea that was born out of my love of hard, hard crime novels and matinee creature features of yesteryear,” says DeKnight in a statement: “I am thrilled to finally see that dream realized through the incredible artwork of Leno Carvalho and the good people at Humanoids.”

Carvalho added: “Hard Bargain is a new universe of possibilities with new challenges and new rewards. A strong and concise narrative, full of twists and turns that combines the charm of old detective novels with today’s action-packed thrillers.”

Hard Bargain looks like a great comic that will tell a solid and interesting story. Below you can see some preview images. The comic will go on sale in August.
