From The Press Release
LOS ANGELES, CA (August 8, 2022) – BOOM! Studios announced today BEHOLD,BEHEMOTH, a brand new horror series from the bestselling House of Slaughter’s Tate Brombal, as he brings his first original series to BOOM! Studios alongside highly acclaimed artist Nick Robles (The Dreaming: Waking Hours), and letterer AndWorld Design (The Many Deaths of Laila Starr), about how a man’s fracturing world and monstrous nightmares foreshadow the unthinkable, in stores November 2022.
Greyson’s world is crumbling following his brother’s sudden and mysterious death. His sleepless nights are haunted by vivid nightmares of a terrifying monster, pushing him to the brink of losing both his sanity and his job as a social worker. But he’s truly shaken to the core when his newest case—a young orphaned girl named Wren—is found at the scene of a brutal murder, just hours after first meeting Greyson. The line between nightmare and waking life blurs as Greyson soon discovers that the monster from his dreams might just be real—a mythical, ancient beast that is bringing about the end of the world, with shocking connections to both him and Wren…

“Behold, Behemoth may be the most ambitious, exhilarating comic of my career, solely because we are building something that comics hasn’t quite seen before,” said Brombal. “It is psycho-horror meets post-apocalypse by way of biblical fantasia, all spinning around the complicated bond between a grieving man and an orphaned girl. And I cannot wait for everyone to witness the culmination of Nick Robles’ entire creative career in these pages. But, for now, simply behold… BEHEMOTH!”
