IDW Publishing Announces New CSI Series

Official Press Release

San Diego, Ca. - IDW has announced its newest CSI: Crime Scene Investigation miniseries, entitled Demon House, which will launch in February 2004.

In Demon House, Gil Grissom and his team of Las Vegas CSIs already have their hands full with a gang of costumed robbers, when what looks like an accidental killing inside a charity-event "haunted house" may turn out to be murder.

Like IDW's other popular CSI miniseries, Demon House is written by award-winning crime writer Max Allan Collins, creator of the Nate Heller mystery novels and the original graphic novel Road to Perdition. Collins is also the writer of the CSI novels and video games. Art for this miniseries is by the same acclaimed team as previous miniseries, with Gabriel Rodriguez on the main story and Ashley Wood (Popbot, Dos Fanta) on flashback and crime reenactment scenes, mirroring the visual styles of the TV series.

"Max Allan Collins has topped himself this time," IDW Editor-in-Chief Jeff Mariotte said. "In Demon House we have a visually fascinating location for a mystery that's as full of twists and turns as the best episodes of TV's most popular drama."

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation-Demon House is a 32-page, full color comic book with a retail price of $3.99. As before, IDW promises additional CSI-related matter in every issue.
