Teen Horror Anthology Launching in June With Skybound Presents Afterschool
Image/Skybound has announced a new horror miniseries launching this June. The new teen horror anthology series is set to take the cautionary tales we learned as teens and flipping them on their severed heads according to the press release from Image/Skybound. Skybound Presents Afterschool promises to teach them a lesson.
Each issue of the new anthology series will bring together a separate team of talented writers and artists from comics, television, and more. The creators include Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead, Greg Hinkle, Leila Leiz, Jill Blotevogel, and Marley Zarcone. Each team of creators is set to bring their own unique take on the horrifying scale and set of characters they introduce in their stories.
Jon Moisan, Editor at Skybound Entertainment talked about the series in the press release, saying:
“As a horror fan, this series has been a dream come true to work on, every creator featured across each issue is among the most exciting I’ve ever worked with and the scares they’ve dreamed up are beyond anything I’ve ever seen in a comic book. Trust me when I say that you DO NOT want to be sent to detention with any of the monsters featured within.”
The debut issue will feature creators Benson, Moorhead, Hinkle, and Giovanna Niro and is set to follow Nora, whose anxiety has prevented her from being able to approach her high school life with confidence. That is until she adopts her emotional support dog, Janie. Janie comes with a killer secret, and the issue explores how far Nora will go to keep her new companion in her life.
“As lifelong fans of bold anthology storytelling, and as two people who live on a diet of weird fiction, we couldn’t be more proud to be part of Afterschool,” said Benson and Moorhead.
“Drawing horror is always fun, but it’s a real treat when creators like Aaron and Justin bring such a fleshed out idea to the table,” said Hinkle. “This was a very, very fun book to get to draw, and with colors by Giovanna Niro, one that I’m very excited to show off.”
