IDW Publishing is unleashing four new horror-infused comic series this month, and we’ve got the cover artwork and story details for you on all of them!
Conor McCreery, Anthony Del Col (w) • Andy Belanger (a) • Kagan McLeod, Belanger (c)
What Fables does for fairy tales, Kill Shakespeare does with the greatest writer of all time. This dark take on the Bard pits his greatest heroes (Hamlet, Juliet, Othello Falstaff) against his most menacing villains (Richard III, Lady Macbeth, Iago) in an epic adventure to find and kill a reclusive wizard named William Shakespeare. This debut – featuring a full 32-page story – will change the way you look at Shakespeare forever. (2 regular covers will be shipped in a 1-to-1 ratio.)
Mark Ryan (w) • Mike Grell (a & c)
Artist Mike Grell (Jon Sable Freelance, The Warlord) teams up with writer/actor Mark Ryan (the Transformers movies) in an amazing story 15 years in the making. Weaving together true timelines from WWII and the present day, The Pilgrim is a tale of war and the supernatural, drawing on the history of the occultism used by both British and Nazi forces and fusing it with a modern day intelligence and espionage story ripped from today’s headlines.
Marc Andreyko (w) • Stephen Molnar (a) • The Sharp Brothers (c)
Earth in the near future is a place where the only gods worshipped are money and power. When black-market artifacts dealer Hamilton Finch stumbles upon a cache of ancient treasures, he does not expect to come face-to-face with Zeus himself! Is it true? Do the gods walk among us? And what event has caused them to show themselves after so many millennia? (Created by TV and movie star Michael Chiklis!)
Alan Robert (w & a) • Robert, Nelson DeCastro (c)
Rocker Alan Robert of the legendary metal-crossover music group Life of Agony writes and illustrates this twisted horror/conspiracy series. Wire Hangers uses nightmarish visuals and graphic storytelling to depict a wave of abductions plaguing New York City. Pill-popping detectives, corrupt secret agents, and a mysterious, disfigured homeless man are all inter-connected in this horrific tale of revenge and redemption. (2 regular covers will be shipped in a 1-to-1 ratio.)
