BERKELEY, CA — This August, Image Comics and Rick
Remender bring horror fans a modern take on the classic ghost story
in SORROW. This four issue mini-series masterfully blends all the
terror of The Exorcist with the eerie psychosis of David Lynch’s Twin
“I’ve been fascinated with the idea of possession since childhood,”
says Remender “There is nothing more terrifying than the idea of
dark, disembodied spirits creeping in and taking us over. Co-writer
Seth Peck and I wrote this with the idea that gore is the least
interesting aspect of Horror stories– true horror is psychological,
not simply bloody.”
In 1952, the U.S. Government’s nuclear testing killed all of the good
people of Sorrow, Nevada. Today, the sign in front of town reads
“population zero”. The locals, however, will tell you a very
different story… When a car accident strands a group of four young
travelers in this desolate ghost town, they soon find that not all
that is buried is dead.
The creative team of SORROW consists of fan favorite comics industry
veteran Remender (STRANGE GIRL, FEAR AGENT) along with co-writer Seth
Peck and Italian superstar artist Francesco Francavilla (Black Coat,
Fear Agent) with covers by Kieron Dwyer (Remains, Sea of Red).
“When Rick approached me to work on the book with him I was
flattered,” Says Peck “Beyond being a friend, I’m also a fan of his
work, and I loved the concept behind “Sorrow”. Hopefully we can
deliver something that fans can enjoy and find genuinely creepy.
Before we started, Rick and I spent a lot of time talking about what
sort of elements we wanted in the book, and what sort of things would
give readers a legitimate scare. I think we’ve succeeded, and
Francesco really brought all that to life in his artwork.”
SORROW is a black and white four issue miniseries with a cover price
of $2.99. Issue number one goes on sale August first. It will be
available for order through the June issue of Diamond Previews.
