Genres Collide in Nightworld
Adam McGovern and Paolo Leandri are teaming up once again for an all-new series called Nightworld from Image Comics. The new comic aims to mix humor, horror, tragic romance, and blockbuster monster fights beginning this August. Here's the write up from the publisher:
Sad demon Plenilunio rules a haunted castle with his sleepwalking lover Lidia, and unwisely bargains with the evil Empyre to wake her. He’s in a race for the mystic Soul Key with teen-from-Hades Hotspot and the ruthless Hellena—agents of the Empyre with secret agendas. A four-part thrill ride to hell starts here.
“We couldn’t be happier that our pop-art horror-show saga is at home with Image,” said writer McGovern. “It’s grindhouse humor and blockbuster visuals like you always wanted comics to be!”
"We tried to mix (in real authentic brushstrokes) a cocktail of gothic-horror mood, adrenalized action and personal drama, then garnish with a bit of humor; hope it tastes good!" said artist Leandri.
This sounds like a fun book so I'm interested in how it all comes together. The first issue of Nightworld will be available on August 6th and will retail for $3.99.
