DC Horror Presents: ‘The Conjuring – The Lover’ #1 Preview
by Olly MacNamee
As part of our new look Sunday line-up we’ll still be bringing you a selection of themed previews, and this week is no different. With DC Comics offering up several horror comics this week, we thought we’d pepper the afternoon with previews for The Swamp Thing #4 and the inescapable James Tynion IV’s newest creator-owned series, The Nice House on the Lake #1. But first, we bring you a movie tie-in title we think will do awfully well, DC Horror Presents: The Conjuring – The Lover #1:

“The terrifying debut of the tie-in to The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It begins here, with a story that’s bursting at the seams with clues about the new film.
Meet Jessica. Jessica just returned to her freshman year of college after winter break, bringing with her the anxieties of last semester’s poor grades, the awkwardness of facing a boy she wishes she’d never slept with, and an undeniably unnerving feeling of being watched.
She soon comes to realize that something evil made her its target, and it will not rest until it has her in its unholy grip. But why did this sinister presence set its sights on a seemingly normal college freshman? Read this nerve-racking tale, creepily crafted by Conjuring screenwriter David L. Johnson-McGoldrick and Rex Ogle with heart-stopping art from Garry Brown and chill-inducing covers by Bill Sienkiewicz, to find out!”
DC Horror Presents: The Conjuring – The Lover #1 is out Tuesday 1st June from DC Comics
