Oni Press series Hellbreak met a bit of a delay earlier this year, with coloring duties migrating from Eisner-winner Jordie Bellaire to Eisner-winner Dave Stewart, and Terrible Lizard, also written by Cullen Bunn, took the book's place on the schedule. But the book -- written by Oni veteran Bunn and illustrated by The Secret History of D.B. Cooper's Brian Churilla, is on track for a March 2015 debut.
"It follows a group called the Kerberos Project, which is working closely with the Catholic Church," Bunn told CBR of Hellbreak in March of this year. "We find out that when someone is possessed, their soul is actually displaced so a demon or devil takes up residence in the person's body and kicks their soul into Hell. There are an infinite numbers of Hells out there, each one different, each one ghastly and horrible in its own way."
ROBOT 6 has the first look at a variant cover for issue #1 illustrated by Cliff Chiang, who recently wrapped an acclaimed three-year stint on Wonder Woman. Retailers can "unlock" the Chiang variant by ordering 100 copies of Hellbreak #1. The issue will have a total of three variants, each with a $3.99 cover price; but the standard cover by Churilla will be sold for the introductory price of $1. Chiang's variant and Churilla's standard cover both follow in full below.
