Ashley Wood will return to IDW Publishing this year with his Lore collaborator (and wife) T.P. Louise for an ongoing bimonthly series called The Beautiful War.
Debuting in May, the series center on Audel Howard, an industrialist who, “when he lets a green fairy out of the bottle, makes a deal that no mere mortal man can refuse. Wine, women, song, and a large backyard extension called America are now coming his way.”
“Any Ashley Wood book is an event that excites all of us at IDW,” Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall said in a statement. “And T.P. Louise, who crafted such an epic tale in Lore, is back to do the same thing here.”
The debut of The Beautiful War will be followed in June by the release of Wood’s Adventure Kartel, an oversized art book containing comic book stories, concept art and more.
Lore, the 2003 miniseries about a secret agency that protects the unwitting world from monsters of legend intent on humanity’s destruction, is being developed for film by Warner Bros.
