DAREDEVIL Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight Returns To Comics with Dark Supernatural Thriller HARD BARGAIN — GeekTyrant

Former Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight is returning to comics for a dark supernatural story that he wants to tell titled Hard Bargain.

In the thriller, “a detective races to solve a deadly mystery in the heart of Los Angeles before a horrific fate descends upon everyone it touches. Frank Harding is a hard-boiled P.I. in ’40s Los Angeles who finds himself fighting not only the usual cadre of criminals and ne’er-do-wells, but also the occasional demon and other malevolent supernatural beings,” it continues. “While fighting the forces of darkness is another day at the office for Frank, his current case, tied into his own past and LA’s all-too-real history of prejudice and discrimination, may be the one that puts Frank out of business…for good.”

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 sprang from my love of two-fisted, hard-boiled detective stories and matinee creature-features of days gone by,” says DeKnight in a statement. “I’m thrilled to finally have that dream realized via 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, concise narrative rich in twists and turns that combines the charm of old detective stories with the action-packed thrillers of today.”

Hard Bargain looks like a great comic that will tell a solid and interesting story. You can see some preview art below. The comic goes on sale in August.
