Early this December Dark Horse is to publish the first in a new five-issue western horror comic-book tale, To Hell You Ride: White Man’s Guilt , by Alien actor, Lance Henriksen and co-writer, Joseph Maddrey with art supplied by Tom Mandrake.
Lance Henriksen is, of course, best known for acting in movies like the Alien franchise, Near Dark, Powder and The Quick and The Dead , as well at the old fantasy TV show, Millennium. He’s obviously branching out here, then.
To Hell You Ride: White Man’s Guilt tells the story of a ritual from the past that presents itself in modern day. The story begins in Colorado in the winter of 1881 where a violent ceremony has been unleashed. The tale flashes to present day with the advent of Two-Dogs, a drifting Native American about to embark on his greatest life or death challenge.
Henriksen told SFcrowsnest, “Dark Horse Comics took a chance on a handshake. A year and a half later we are closing in on the fifth issue of To Hell Your Ride. We have channeled the whole adventure, sharing the work load between Tom Mandrake, Joseph Maddrey and myself. I have never been more excited about revealing my work to an audience.”
