by Brendan M. Allen
BOOM! Studios’ new limited horror series Proctor Valley Road #1, from Grant Morrison, Alex Child, Naomi Franquiz, and Tamra Bonvillain kicks off this week. Aimed at readers of Paper Girls and Die, the series is about mysterious monsters and the four misfit teenagers who must stop them.
‘August, Rylee, Cora & Jennie have organized a “Spook Tour” with their classmates on the most haunted, demon-infested stretch of road in America to fund attending the concert of their dreams.
But when their visit turns deadly, these four friends race to rescue the missing students…before the town tears them limb from limb. Now they must slay the evils roaming Proctor Valley Road…along with the monsters lurking in the hearts of 1970s America.’
Naomi Franquiz says:
Proctor Valley Road is a big slice of Americana laced with uneasy cryptid horror, a side of rebel youth, and a killer soundtrack.
Proctor Valley Road #1 features main cover art by Franquiz, along with variant covers from Chris Wildgoose, Christian Ward, and Peach Momoko.
