Adam McGovern and Paolo Leandri (The Next Issue Project, Project: Romantic) are teaming up for Nightworld, a new Image Comics series full of humor, horror, tragic romance and action-packed monster fights. Sad demon Plenilunio rules a haunted castle with his sleepwalking lover Lidia, and unwisely bargains with the evil Empyre to wake her. He's in a race for the mystic Soul Key with teen-from-Hades Hotspot and the ruthless Hellena—agents of the Empyre with secret agendas. A four-part thrill ride to hell starts here. "We couldn't be happier that our pop-art horror-show saga is at home with Image," said McGovern. "It's grindhouse humor and blockbuster visuals like you always wanted comics to be!" Describing Nightworld's art, Leandri said, "we tried to mix (in real authentic brushstrokes) a cocktail of gothic-horror mood, adrenalized action and personal drama, then garnish with a bit of humor; hope it tastes good!" Nightworld #1 comes arrives in stores August 6 (Diamond Code JUN140485).
