IDW Publishing recently announced a new series by the creative team of writer Rich Douek and artist Alex Cormack (best known for their hit Road of Bones) as they reunite to bring readers a deep sea adventure with a horrific twist: the five-issue Sea of Sorrows!
In the aftermath of the Great War, the North Atlantic is ripe for plunder by independent salvage crews. When a former naval officer hires the SS Vagabond, he leads the ship to a sunken U-boat, and a fortune in gold. Tensions mount as the crew prepares to double cross each other, but the darkness of the ocean floor holds deeper terrors than any of them have bargained for!
“Alex and I are excited to put the same twisted imaginations that brought you Road of Bones to work on new places, new characters, and of course, new heights of unspeakable terror,” said Douek in a recent press release. “Get ready for another dark journey into the horrors that lurk within the pages of history!”
“The ocean is a terrifying and mysterious place,” says Cormack. “Sea of Sorrows reveals the isolation and horror of being in an alien world on our own planet, facing threats that should be impossible, chasing you through an inescapable setting. With the character designs and especially the story, this would be a book I’d draw just for myself. Rich is a talented writer and great collaborator. I’m happy to be along for the ride!”
Sea of Sorrows #1 will be available with coming May with cover art by Alex Cormack, plus a Retailer Incentive variant edition by Katie Sawatsky. Check your favorite comic book store for availability and preorder.
