San Diego Comic-Con 2013: Alan Robert Takes on the Angel of Death in The Shunned One
Fans of the metal band Life of Agony will recognize the name Alan Robert as he is the group's bassist/songwriter. But more recently he's become pretty successful in the world of comics, and he's now prepping his newest title, The Shunned One.
The Shunned One will be released in 2014 by IDW Publishing. With titles like Killogy, Crawl to Me, and Wire Hangers already under his belt, Robert promises this to be his darkest title yet!

From the Press Release
Life of Agony bassist/songwriter Alan Robert teams up with award-winning publisher IDW Publishing once again to release another creator-owned horror comic miniseries, The Shunned One, in 2014. Robert’s upcoming tale of winged woe focuses on an Angel of Death who goes rogue after being ordered to take several innocent lives. This guilt-ridden death angel begins to carry out his own judgment on humans, based on their actions instead of whether their names appear on the preordained Death List. The Angel’s unsanctioned murders instantly alter the balance within the universe and trigger a string of unforeseen disasters that spiral out of control. Banished from Heaven by his Creator and hunted by a pack of vengeful death angels, The Shunned One must hide among the humans to survive while trying to reverse the damage he’s done.
"This will definitely be my darkest series to date," says Robert. "The tragedies in Newtown and Aurora really hit home for me. I can’t even begin to imagine the pain those families are going through. I suppose The Shunned One is my subconscious reaction to events like that—just trying to cope with all this death and my worst fears in my own way."
"I’m happy to once again put my life in Alan Robert’s hands in the form of his latest series for IDW," said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Office/Editor-in-Chief. "As he’s proven with his numerous series for us already, he’s an expert at telling dark, fantastical tales; and The Shunned One, featuring the Angel of Death himself, is only the latest reason we’re happy to keep walking into dark territory with him."
