Award-winning comic book creator Jeff Lemire–of Sweet Tooth and Black Hammer fame–invites horror fans to escape a deadly maze.
The new horror comic offering Mazebook from Dark Horse Comics is a five-issue limited series–written and drawn by Lemire–that follows a grieving father as he enters a dangerous maze to save his lost daughter, as reported by comicsbeat.com. Check out the Mazebook No. 1 covers by Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino on this page.
The 48-page comics–as explained by Dark Horse–deal with “a lonely building inspector still grieving the loss of his puzzle-loving daughter who receives a mysterious phone call from a girl claiming to be her–trapped in the middle of a labyrinth.”
The distraught father is convinced his daughter is reaching out to him from the beyond, so he uses “an old unfinished maze from one of her journals and a map of the city to trace an intricate path through a different plane of reality and embarks on an intense and melancholic adventure to bring his daughter back home.”
The series–which goes on sale at comic book shops Sept. 8–was praised by James Tynion IV (Something is Killing the Children) as a “deeply haunting and powerfully human work. You do not want to miss this book.”
Lemire is coming off his success with the DC Comics/Vertigo Sweet Tooth series, which was adapted into an eight-episode Netflix series, and his Dark Horse Black Hammer comics, which won an Eisner Award for Best New Series in 2017.
