MINISERIES PREMIERE

Writer RYAN CADY (HAUNT YOU TO THE END, Batman) and artist CHRISTIAN DiBARI (REVOLVERS, MAGDALENA: REFORMATION) present…

Life, for the most part, is the product of the decisions you make. For some, a “wrong” decision or two (or more) leads to a crossroads on the other side of the Destiny Gate. Do you fight for a chance to survive and to start anew, or do you succumb to your inner demons and end it all for you and, worse, yours?

In this opening tale, we meet Mitchell Slate at the height of the Great Depression. Down on his luck and heading home to a disappointed and desperate family, Mitchell’s train ride veers off the rails and transforms into a macabre and darkly fantastical journey into his own fragile soul.

    What makes Destiny Gate unique is its blending of genres. It’s dark and brooding, like a horror film, but also exciting and action-packed, like an epic fantasy tale.

    Ryan Cady’s engaging and complex script, paired with Christian DiBari’s hauntingly beautiful artwork, makes for an unforgettable debut issue. It’s thrilling, action-packed, and thought-provoking all at the same time.

    Destiny Gate #1 is an intriguing start to what looks to be a fantastic limited series. The first issue lays the groundwork for all that is to come. If you like suspense, horror, and supernatural stories, this is definitely the book for you!

    Based on the concept for an eventual video game, Destiny Gate delivers enough spooky vibes to make up for the flaws and tropes of its premise. The opening issue introduces us to our protagonist, Mitchell Slate, before diving head-first into the larger-than-life consequences of his actions. While the visuals from Christian Dibari allow for some grotesque extravagance, the script doesn’t do nearly enough to make Mitchell, or the structuring of his problem, compelling.
