Image Comics to Release Doug Wagner’s Plastic

by Stephanie Shamblin Gray

Image Comics announced today that it has a new horror comic coming in April from writer Doug Wagner and artists Daniel Hillyard and Laura Martin called “Plastic.” Although the press release lists it as a crime series, the book is about a retired serial killer who is forced to kill again to save the woman he loves. What makes this book stand out is that the woman he loves is a doll named Virginia.

Wagner said in an interview with Image+ Magazine “Some people are going to HATE it. But, for those who embrace the strange as beautiful, you’re in for one hell of a disturbingly glorious ride.”

Werewolves and vampires are nice in the horror genre, but it’s refreshing to see something so…unusual come along once in a while.

Synopsis: Retired serial killer Edwyn Stoffgruppen is in love with Virginia, a girl he “met online.” Her affection quiets his vile urges. Together, they tour the back roads of America in their LTD, eating doughnuts and enjoying their healthy appetites for each other. Life is good… until a Louisiana billionaire kidnaps Virginia, forcing Edwyn to kill again in exchange for her freedom. The twist? Virginia is a doll.
