It's 1952. The wound WWII inflicted on the world is still fresh. Sam Safdie and his ragtag group of treasure hunters have been searching for the fabled map of the Owl Mountains for years...and they finally found it. Their journey leads them to a massive war complex that hides both unknown horrors and a fortune in gold. However, the deeper they travel, the more they realize the complex has developed a life of its own and that some secrets are better left buried in the past.

Project Riese is an action-packed adventure/sci-fi tale perfect for fans of Uncharted, Overlord, and The Keep.

    Moreover, the story has a unique plot with supernatural elements hinted. The tease of the existence a creature in the complex that comes to life, and the possibility of otherworldly force adds to the spine-chilling moments. The suspenseful buildup of supernatural elements promises a lot of unexplored avenues in future issues. Read Full Review

    Project Riese #1 is a slow burn that is clearly building toward what I hope is a massive fast paced exploration of an abandoned wonderland of pseudo-science centers and horror-filled hallways, in the search for stolen gold and survival.  Read Full Review

    PROJECT RIESE #1 begins an intriguing tale of a group of treasure hunters on the trail of lost Nazi gold hidden in a mysterious network of tunnels. The historical backdrop, location, and circumstances give the horror story a creepy air of credibility, and the art is decent enough. Read Full Review

    Jeff McComsey and Paul Little provide cartoony designs and heavy lines full of rich colors that give the issue the proper period look. Any fan of adventure should add this to their pull list. Read Full Review
