Critically acclaimed writer Rodney Barnes and fan-favorite Spawn artist Jason Shawn Alexander will expand their Eisner-nominated Killadelphia series’ universe with the terrifying new tie-in Nita Hawes’ Nightmare Blog. The spin-off series will launch this October from Image Comics.
“Nita Hawes’ Nightmare Blog is pure horror in the classical sense of the word,” said Barnes in an exclusive scoop on the announcement at Comic Book Resources. “Its roots are in the tradition of the classic horror films and novels I’ve loved throughout my life. I’m incredibly excited to see how fans take to the story.”
Jimmy Sangster might have left Maryland for the vampire-infested city of “Killadelphia,” but there is still untold evil lurking the streets of Baltimore. The demon Corson has surfaced from the underworld to possess a once-wronged man, and his vengeance will come at the cost of humanity’s despair! But Jimmy’s former lover Nita Hawes—a woman with demons of her own—has begun a quest to root the evil out of her city. Guided by the ghost of her dead brother, she must come to terms with her own past, lest she join her brother in a state worse than death!
Alexander added: “Nita Hawes’ Nightmare Blog is the perfect conduit for us to explore all matter of things that go bump or scream in the night. This is kick ass horror with crazy amazing talent behind it.”
The series will also feature eye-popping variant covers by Well-Bee, Francesco Mattina, and Patric Reynolds.
Nita Hawes’ Nightmare Blog #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, October 20
