Image Comics has announced an upcoming series titled Phantom Road. The grindhouse horror/fantasy series is set to reunite acclaimed creators Jeff Lemire and Gabriel Hernandez Walta who previously brought readers the beloved Sentient series.

Image Comics‘ description of Phantom Road reads:

“Phantom Road follows Dom, a long-haul truck driver attempting to stay ahead of his tragic past. When he stops one night to assist Birdie, who has been in a massive car crash, they pull an artifact from the wreckage that throws their lives into fifth gear. Suddenly, a typical midnight run has become a frantic journey through a surreal world where Dom and Birdie find themselves the quarry of strange and impossible monsters.”

Lemire spoke with ScreenRant about the upcoming series, saying:

“As soon as I first worked with Gabriel on Sentient I knew he was a collaborator I needed to do more with. We began talking about a big creator-owned series at Image. Something massive in scope like all the books we loved when we were getting into comics. Something with the scope of Preacher and Sandman and The Walking Dead. We began putting ideas together and Phantom Road is the result. A sprawling mash-up of sci-fi, horror and character driven road movie. We can’t wait to share it with everyone.”

Walta added:

“Working on Phantom Road is such a gift! Doing a creator-owned book with Jeff is something I’ve been wanting to do for many years and having the chance to collaborate with Jordie, Steve, and Greg is a real joy. Also… seeing the Image logo in our book is just a blast!!”

Phantom Road #1 will be available at your local comic shop and digitally on March 8, 2023.
