DC Comics has conjured Etrigan for the new six-issue miniseries The Demon: Hell Is Earth.
Written by Andrew Constant (Torn) and illustrated by Brad Walker and Andrew Hennessey (Aquaman), the title star Jack Kirby's classic creation in a tale that finds Jason Blood retired, believing he's locked away the demon Etrigan forever. But when a nuclear bomb explodes in Death Valley, it unearths a threat only he's equipped to confront.

Jason Blood and Etrigan: the best of enemies, destined to spend eternity bound together. When a haunting vision leads Jason to Death Valley, a supernatural weapon is unleashed, radically transforming not only the land, but also Blood…and the Demon. The worst, though, is yet to come, as hell begins to make its way into our world.
"I was excited to work on a great, slightly lesser-exposed Kirby character," Walker said in a statement. "As I've gotten into Andrew's scripts, I've been having fun doing something tonally different than books I've worked on in the past. It's fun tapping into moody, darker aspects of my art. It has a bit of a Vertigo vibe. It's maybe not a side of me people know, but it's stuff I am a fan of, just as much as the big, bombastic, superhero stuff."
The Demon: Hell is Earth #1 debuts Nov. 15 from DC Comics.
