Image Comics Announce New Supernatural Horror Series, ‘F*ck This Place’

by Olly MacNamee

Today Image/Skybound announced the rather contentiously titled horror series F*ck This Place, from Eisner Award-nominee Kyle Starks (Sexcastle, Rock Candy Mountain), artist Artyom Topilin (Ice Cream Man Presents Quarantine Comix Special), and colourist Lee Loughridge (Deadly Class, The Good Asian). The debut issue will launch in May.

Here’s what you need to know about this new book:

“After inheriting a farm house, Trudy and Gabby are ready to start the next chapter of their lives together…except it’s already home to a mysterious force that’s attracted ghosts, aliens, and all kinds of supernatural beings for decades. Now, Gabby and Trudy must play by the “house rules” in order to survive the most frightening place on Earth.”

Here’s what the creators have to say about this new series:

“It’s a true honor to be working with the good people at Skybound again and an ever greater one that they’re willing to let me dip my toes into horror. You may all know me best as a comedy writer—twice nominated for the Eisner for Best Humor Publication—but comedy and horror are similar beasts. They both rely on tone, set up and pacing. If you enjoyed my comedy works, I think you’ll really love this adventure.

The mysterious and awful Rutherford Ranch of F*ck This Place is being brought to life by the incredible efforts of Artyom Topilin and Lee Loughton. They’re doing incredible work that’s going to blow you away. And I believe this book will too. If you love the heart of horror—normal people in frightful, dangerous situations—then this is the book for you.” – Kyle Starks

“This comic is pretty much everything I love to draw: monsters, gore, creepy woods, cool girls and charismatic bastards. If these are things you also like to see in your comics, you’ve come to the right Place.” – – Artyom Topilin

F*ck This Place #1 will be available in stores and digitally on Wednesday, May 18th, 2022.
