On Wednesday, January 17, 2024, Borealis #2 goes on sale from Dark Horse Comics, taking fans further down the winding road of some mysterious, brutal deaths in the cold heart of Alaska. With one State Trooper attempting to solve the crimes, she’ll have to contend with the local mob and closer suspects if she hopes to stop further killings.

Writers Mark Verheiden and Aaron Douglas, artist Cliff Richards, and colorist Guy Major built atmosphere and characterization beautifully in issue #1, using even the location of Alaska itself to bring an eerie terror to readers. Check out these exclusive preview pages that Dark Horse Comics was kind enough to share with FreakSugar! From what you’ll see below, the creative team isn’t letting up on what they’ve laid the foundation for in the inaugural issue and we’re here for it.

Borealis #2 goes on sale Wednesday, January 17, 2024, from Dark Horse Comics.

From the official issue description:

From writer of comics and screen Mark Verheiden (The American, Aliens, Timecop, Falling Skies), writer/actor Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica, The Bridge), and artist CliffRichards (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Justice League) comes Borealis, a freezing nightmare of paranormal terror!

Alaska State Trooper Silaluk “Sil” Osha’s investigation into a series of gruesome slayings draws her deeper into darkness, as a shipment of illegal liquor lies shattered on the snow–along with its mobster smugglers, victims of a deadly force beyond understanding. With no clear suspect at hand, the local underworld arms up for retaliation, but while Sil’s case evidence holds no keys to the murderous mystery, there may be only one place Sil needs to look–into a mirror!
