Image Comics Announces "The Discipline" Trade Paperback
The controversial first chapter collected into trade paperback this October
Sizzling creative team Peter Milligan (The Names, X-Statix, Hellblazer) and Leandro Fernandez (The Names, Punisher MAX, Northlanders: The Plague Widow) will release the first arc of their chillingly erotic horror series THE DISCIPLINE in trade paperback this October.
When frustrated Manhattan wife Melissa Peake allows herself to be seduced by a mysterious stranger, she is drawn into an ancient war between The Discipline and the creatures known as The Stalkers…and must discover hitherto unimagined potential within herself to survive. But at what cost? Whatever you've heard about it won’t prepare you for...THE DISCIPLINE.
THE DISCIPLINE, VOLUME 1 (ISBN: 9781632159229) hits comic book stores Wednesday, October 5th and bookstores Tuesday, October 11th and will be available for $9.99. It can be ordered by retailers with Diamond code: JUL160795. It can be preordered now via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and Indigo.
PRAISE FOR THE DISCIPLINE:
“Milligan and Fernandez are cooking up one hell of a sexually charged mystery building on something many people can relate to—feeling sexually starved—and using it to reveal a mysterious world involving sex, violence, and manipulation.” —AiPT!
“Fernandez’s use of shadow to evoke sexual tension and fear of the unknown reinforces an atmosphere of fear-tinged titillation, yet never approaches unwarranted visual depravity.” —Broken Frontier
“THE DISCIPLINE delivers a story that is mythical, risqué, eccentric and mysterious.” —Monkeys Fighting Robots
“THE DISCIPLINE is a dark, suggestive, and ultimately interesting look at what goes with the world after dark. Be it monsters or men, we are all slaves to the night.” —Fangoria
