To borrow a phrase from our good friends @darkstarz and @LaserPuff, our resident midnight hosts of all things DC Horror and #house-of-horror-club …
Greetings, horror hounds!
There’s no greater feeling than Halloween in the Summer, and that’s exactly what DC is bringing your way 2021-06-01T07:00:00Z! Read on, if you dare…
On June 1, DC is launching its all-new DC HORROR imprint with The Conjuring: The Lover , a five-issue monthly limited series, which serves as a prelude to the highly anticipated New Line Cinema film, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It , arriving in theatres and exclusively on HBO Max Friday, June 4.
Here’s your first look at some interior pages from issue #1 by series artist Garry Brown.
Whoa! They weren’t kidding when they said “horror”.
This dark and haunting mystery is co-written by Daniel Johnson-McGoldrick (screenwriter, The Conjuring 2, Orphan ) and Rex Ogle. The prelude introduces college student Jessica, a college freshman returning to campus after winter break, bringing with her the anxieties of last semester’s poor grades, the awkwardness of facing a boy she wishes she’d never slept with, and an undeniably unnerving feeling of being watched.
Also launching the DC HORROR imprint is NICE HOUSE ON THE LAKE, by James Tynion IV , Álvaro Martíne, and Jordie Bellaire. We recently saw a spooky sneak that looked a little something like this:
shudder We’re starting to think maybe that house ain’t so nice.
In the debut issue of The Nice House On The Lake by James Tynion IV and Álvaro Martínez Bueno, launching June 1, everyone who was invited to the house knows Walter. Some met him in childhood; some met him months ago. And Walter’s always been a little…off. But after the hardest year of their lives, nobody was going to turn down Walter’s invitation to an astonishingly beautiful house in the woods, overlooking an enormous sylvan lake. It’s beautiful, it’s opulent, it’s private—so a week of putting up with Walter’s weird little schemes and nicknames in exchange for the vacation of a lifetime? Why not?
