As we learned at WonderCon last weekend, Boom! Studios are going to be publishing an all-new horror comic series in July from horror veteran Cullen Bunn and debuting artists Şerif & Mustafa Karasu in July 2018. Boom! have now released further details and concept art, as well as covers, for issue #1.
In Bone Parish, a new drug is taking over New Orleans, “one made from the ashes of the dead”. Wars are being fought over the supply, with demand rising. Factions collide and users begin to experience “terrifying visions of the dead coming back to life—through them”.
Cullen Bunn explains:
BONE PARISH is a supernatural crime story, the story of a tenacious family that is determined to carve out their own empire despite overwhelming odds. The challenges they face originate both in this world and the next. They face pressure from rival criminal organizations that are much more powerful than they are. They must contend with internal strife as obsession and ambition tear away at them from within. And they face horrific threats from the restless spirits they stir as part of their sinister business dealings.
Mustafa & Serif Karasu add:
We are immensely excited and honored to be a part of developing this unpredictable, exceptional story alongside Cullen Bunn and BOOM! Studios. We know this dynamic story will captivate and amaze fans the same way it has for us!
Bone Parish #1 features a main cover by Lee Garbett (Lucifer) and a variant cover by Rod Reis (Doctor Strange: Damnation).
Print copies of Bone Parish #1 will be available for sale in July 2018 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one). Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.
