AfterShock Comics has announced new horror comic book series Descendant will debut later this Spring.described as National Treasure meets The X-Files, The supernatural conspiracy story is written by Stephanie Phillips & illustrated by Evgeniy Bornyakov, with colors by Lauren Affe & letters by Troy Peteri.

Phillips said: “Imagine National Treasure meets The X-Files and you’ll get close to Descendant. The story revolves around a conspiracy theorist named David who begins to piece together a mystery surrounding the disappearance of two politicians’ children. What David learns, however, sends him down the rabbit hole of a centuries-old conspiracy, complete with witches, monsters, and a cult, of course. To save the missing kids, David needs to earn the trust of FBI agent Joanna Hernandez and put the last pieces of the puzzle together before time runs out.”

Phillips continued: “Writing this story allows me to blend action, comedy, and some unsolved historical mysteries that have always fascinated me. I really enjoy all of these characters and I am grateful that AfterShock has partnered with me to bring this story to life. Besides, I got to invent a cult, which is definitely on my bucket list of things to do in my life. Kidding… kind of.”

The 32-page debut issue of Descendant issue will be released on Wednesday, May 1st.
