Skybound’s Horror Series Offers New Take on Lewis and Clark
Release Dates: 5/15/14 (Comic Stores) & 5/27/14 (General Book Stores)
Most Americans know to the story of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, who were dispatched by President Thomas Jefferson, at the height of the 19th century, to explore the vast West of the North American continent.
However, Manifest Destiny, soon to be released as a trade paperback, offers up a version that is a tad more horrific than the one everyone knows all too well.
President Thomas Jefferson sends Lewis and Clark to explore the new frontier – an area largely unknown to the white man – and report their findings.
Aided by a crew of increasingly frightened men, Lewis and Clark, French-Canadian explorer Toussaint Charbonneau and his wife Sacagawea encounter an illness that transforms men into savage beasts.
Published by Skybound, the Image Comics imprint of The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, the upcoming trade paperback collects the first six issues of the original series by Chris Dingess and Matthew Roberts.
