Image Comics Announces Milligan and Fernandez's "The Discipline"
THE DISCIPLINE IS A DARK, SEDUCTIVE MYSTERY
An all-new series about sex, death, and metamorphosis
Bestselling writer Peter Milligan (X-Force / X-Statix) and artist Leandro Fernandez (Queen & Country) team up for an all-new series, THE DISCIPLINE, launching from Image Comics this March 2016.
In THE DISCIPLINE #1 readers meet Melissa, one woman who—between fighting her sister and hating her husband—still finds time to fall in lust with a stranger who's an awful lot more than he seems.
“This might be the edgiest story I've written,” said Milligan. “In most ‘erotic thrillers’ sex is the end-game, the objective. In The Discipline the erotic charge is simply a step towards something stranger, darker… beyond human.”
What appears to be a simple seduction is revealed as something much darker and more dangerous.
This controversial and erotically-charged tale of sex, death, and metamorphosis begins with an explosion of carnality and weirdness. THE DISCIPLINE #1 (Diamond Code JAN160523) will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016. The final order cutoff deadline for comic book retailers is Monday, February 8th, 2016.
