BOOM! Studios has announced The Approach, a turbulent new horror series from writers Jeremy Haun and Jason A. Hurley and artist Jesús Hervás about a missing plane that mysteriously reappears after two decades and brings with it a sinister storm that’s much more than it seems.
‘When airport employees Mac and Abigail find themselves snowed in after a blizzard, they witness a terrible plane crash. After pulling a survivor from the wreckage, they realize a terrifying truth: this plane has been missing for 27 years! The nightmare has only just begun though, as the people trapped in the airport soon find themselves confronted by what this plane actually brought back. For those with a fear of flying, it’s not the sky that deserves dread, but what lies beyond it…’
“The Approach is the story of a plane that crash lands at a small regional airport in the middle of a snow storm…after being missing for twenty years…and the horrible thing that came back with it,” said Haun. “It’s our love letter to eighties monster horror, with an absolutely terrifying creature, conjured up by our amazing series artist, Jesús Hervás.”
“It’s been exciting working with Jeremy and Jason on this series because of the challenge of illustrating the horror and suspense while revealing just enough of the unknown mysteries and terrors that loom within the approaching storm,” said Hervas. “The Approach is a wild ride, and I had a lot of fun drawing it, so I can’t wait for everyone to pick it up and start uncovering all the secrets hidden within the pages of the comic.”
The Approach #1 features main cover art by series creator Haun, and variant covers by acclaimed illustrators Francesco Francavilla, Megan Hutchison-Cates, and Bjorn Barends.
Print copies of The Approach #1 will be available for sale in October 2022.
