DC Comics Unleashes New Horror/Fantasy Series ‘The Last God’ This October

Hot on the heels of Wednesday’s announcement of Joe Hill’s new horror imprint Hill House Comics, DC has just announced another series that is sure to interest horror comic fans entitled The Last God.

According to writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Last Sons of America, Jim Henson’s The Power of the Dark Crystal), the new series “…is a terrifying horror story told in a stunning epic-fantasy world. Set in two different generations, it follows a mighty fellowship of heroes that travels beyond the borders of creation to kill a god, and the next generation, who learn their predecessors aren’t the heroes the world believes them to be.”

Along with Kennedy Johnson, “This series features mind-blowing, terrifying art by Riccardo Federici (Aquaman, Dark Nights: Metal) colorist Dean White, and letterer Tom Napolitano, three absolute geniuses in their fields, and epic world-building so deep and rich that it exists beyond the bounds of the page. Fans of D&DGame of ThronesLord of the Rings and Magic: The Gathering, and anyone who enjoys deep-dives into fantasy lore: you will be extremely well-served with The Last God.”

Fan favorite Federici was grateful for the chance to work on the project and “When I was asked to draw this series I was so excited, both because I love the fantasy genre, especially when there are horror connotations, but also because it was an opportunity to graphically create a new world.  Everyone on the team and at DC has shown me such confidence and I am so thankful.”

According to the official press release, “The story will follow a cross-generational quest to kill an evil tyrant king—also known as the Last God—as he seeks to destroy the land of Cain Anuun.”

The 12-issue series begins October 30 and will be released by DC’s new mature audiences brand, Black label.
