Image Comics Announces Horror Comic Book One-Shot, "The Belfry"
THE BELFRY: ASCEND AT YOUR OWN RISK
All-new horror one-shot from Gabriel Hardman coming this February
From Logan storyboard artist and Hugo Award-nominated writer/artist Gabriel Hardman (INVISIBLE REPUBLIC, KINSKI, Star Wars Legacy) comes THE BELFRY, a self-contained one-shot that may just strip you of your humanity.
When an airliner crashes in a remote jungle, everyone walks away unscathed—only to find they can’t escape the lush, brutal world of THE BELFRY.
"This is my dark trip into a world that's a little surreal, a little nihilistic, and all terrifying,” said Hardman. “I wanted to flex some different storytelling muscles, and that led me down the road to eye-gouging violence and naked bat people. But there's beauty as well in the lush art style I've adopted for this story. And naked bat people."
THE BELFRY (ONE-SHOT) (Diamond code: DEC160668) hits comic book stores Wednesday, February 22nd, 2016. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, January 30th, 2016.
