“A wonderful kinetic paean to the comics of your youth—funny and razor smart with Kirby lines like you wouldn’t believe. McGovern and Leandri kill it.”
—Junot Díaz, Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

Fan favorite creators Adam McGovern and Paolo Leandri (THE NEXT ISSUE PROJECT, Project: Romantic) reveal early preview pages for their all-new series NIGHTWORLD, which meshes tragic romance with summer blockbuster-quality skirmishes.

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.

“Nightworld is like no comic you’ve seen but all the favorites you remember,” said McGovern. “Paolo and I are so stoked to be able to share it with you soon, and hope you’ll tell your comic shop and follow us to hell!!”

NIGHTWORLD #1 arrives in stores on 8/6, and will be available for $3.99. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code JUN140485. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is TODAY, Monday, July 14.
