Image Comics/Skybound’s Teen Horror ‘Afterschool’ #3 Creative Team Revealed

by Olly MacNamee

Image Comics/Skybound are promoting its new teen horror series, Afterschool, pretty heavily. Each issue will see a new creative team come onboard and for the third issue we’ll be getting writer Jill Blotevogel (Scream: The TV Series, Shining Vale) artist Marley Zarcone (Shade, the Changing Girl), colourist Giovanna Niro (Two Moons, Summoner’s War: Legacy) and letterer Pat Brosseau (Birthright, Manifest Destiny), with a cover by Veronica Fish (Archie, Sabrina the Teenage Witch).

An annoying younger sister doesn’t begin to explain Leda’s situation. Living with Izzy means perpetual chaos—meltdowns, pranks, and zero privacy. But when a killer breaks into their home, Izzy might just be their best defense.
“Children are pretty much sociopaths until we teach them civility. I’ve always loved the idea of crafting a darker, bloodier HOME ALONE about a wild child-sociopath having to defend her home against a killer-psychopath. Afterschool’s mandate pushed me to create a sibling relationship between teen Leda and young Izzy that gives the primal battle real emotional stakes.”  – Jill Blotevogel
Afterschool #3 will be available in print and digitally on Wednesday, August 17, 2022.
