by Rob Caprilozzi

Beware the Butcher.

Dark Horse Comics has provided us an exclusive preview, which can be seen below, of their upcoming title The Butcher’s Boy. The series is written by Landry Q. Walker with art by Justin Greenwood.

“This book hurt to write,” said Walker. “It was an exercise in harnessing my own fears and anxieties. Because if I don’t feel what I am writing… how can I expect my readers to feel it?”

The official synopsis of the series reads “Deep within the backroads of the Pacific Northwest, an entire town fell victim to the brutal cleaver of the Butcher of La Perdita. But that was more than a hundred years ago, and in that time the generational nightmare of murder and meat has been reduced to morbid clickbait folklore for bored travelers to share online.

And yet some say the Butcher still haunts the streets at night, seeking fresh meat for his larder. A true Lovecraftian horror? Or just the feverish dreams of a mentally unstable serial killer. Six friends on a road trip are about to find out . . .”

The first issue of the mini-series is slated for release on May 22, 2024. Keep it locked to Horror News Network for more on The Butcher’s Boy.
