Image Comics with Skybound Entertainment recently announced Stillwater, new comics work from New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award-winning writer Chip Zdarsky (The White Trees, Daredevil, Sex Criminals) and Eisner, Harvey, and Shuster Award-winning artist Ramón K Pérez (Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand, Jane). Stillwater will be a new ongoing series that promises a dive into a new world of horror and intrigue.
There is little known about the story, except for this hook:
In the town of Stillwater, nobody dies. That’s not just a promise. It’s a threat.
There’s also a 3-page preview below!
“I’m thrilled people are finally going to see Stillwater! This idea’s been percolating in my for years now, and it’s been fun working with Ramon to build this tiny, strange world! I’ve always wanted to write a horror comic so I can show the world that I’m not JUST creepy, I can also write creepy!” said Zdarsky in a recent press release. “I love getting to explore immortality on a small stage, the idea that you can live forever but just within such a constrained space. It’s been a treat getting to write characters struggling with that terrifying deal.”
Pérez added: “It’s been a joy to step away from the superhero genre and delve into the horror, thriller, and a dash of mystery genre with Chip on Stillwater! I hope readers are as unsettled as I was drawing the book…”
Stillwater #1 will be available at comic book shops and popular digital comics apps on Wednesday, September 16.
