From The Press Release
PORTLAND, Ore. 03/18/2022 — Bestselling writer James Tynion IV (The Department Of Truth, Razorblades) and artist Gavin Fullerton (Bog Bodies, Bags) invite readers to a new tale of existential familial horror in the upcoming, The Closet. Previously published via “The Empire of the Tiny Onion” newsletter, this three issue miniseries will launch in June from Image Comics in print format for the first time.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to be bringing the first of the original comic series I’ve been publishing through my Substack to print,” said Tynion IV in an exclusive on the announcement with ScreenRant. “The Closet is a personal horror story that’s been living in the back of my head for a very long time, and I can’t wait to introduce it to a larger audience.”
In The Closet, Thom is moving cross-country with his family and dragging the past along with them. His son, Jamie, is seeing monsters in the bedroom closet and will not let them go.
Fullerton added: “The set up of our story I’m sure will be familiar to many horror fans. A little boy is afraid of the monster in his closet. But also many horror fans will know that these familiar tropes are there to guide the audience into something much much deeper.”
The Closet #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, June 1:
- Cover A by Fullerton – Diamond Code APR220048
- Cover B 1:25 copy incentive by Michael Avon Oeming – Diamond Code APR220049
