A Family Faces The Flames. Mad Cave Announces New Sci-Fi/Horror: Morning Star

No telephones. No electricity. No escape.

We’re proud to announce an all-new sci-fi/horror series, MORNING STAR, co-written by Tim Daniel and David ‘DB’ Andry (Resonant, End After End, Denizen) with art by Marco Finnegan (007, Where We Live); colors by Jason Wordie (First Knife, Rogues) and letters by Justin Birch. Inspired by Stephen King and Steven Spielberg, imagination alone can empower us to look at the unimaginable.

When smokejumper Nathan Garrett perishes in a raging wildfire, his surviving family’s hopes and happiness burn to ashes. In the face of grief, and malevolent forces beyond their comprehension, can the Garrett family face the flames and confront the horrors that await them in Kootenai National Forest?

Synopsis: 1956. Kootenai National Forest, Montana. When smokejumper Nathan Garrett perishes in a raging wildfire, his surviving family’s hopes and happiness turn to ashes.

Now, one year following Nathan’s death, wife, and mother of two, Jolene Garrett, takes her crumbling family to the Morning Star lookout seeking solace through closure–to scatter her husband’s remains. But something far beyond the reach of their wildest imaginings awaits the Garrett family in the Montana wilderness–something more powerful than their anguish and torment. Something that transcends space and time. No telephones. No electricity. No transportation. No escape.
