The Neighbors: Not Everything Is As It Seems in New Changeling Horror Series from Boom! Studios
Boom! Studios has announced an upcoming horror series titled The Neighbors. The brand-new series looks to tread new ground in changeling horror as it takes readers to a small mountain town where unsettling events befall the Gowdie family. It doesn’t take long after moving into town before they realize that there is much more under the surface and not everyone in the town is who or what they claim to be. The series is written by Jude Ellison S. Doyle with art by Letizia Cadonici, colors by Alessandro Santoro, letters by Becca Carey, and main cover art by Miguel Mercado. Rámon K. Perez, Frany, Fabio Moon, Ariela Kristantina, and more will provide art for the variant covers accompanying the five-issue series.
Boom! Studios’ description of The Neighbors reads:
“When Janet and Oliver Gowdie move to a quaint mountain town, their daughter Casey becomes part of a horrific chain of events revealing that their neighbors are anything but what they seem. Soon, an unsettling old woman named Agnes Early fixates on Janet and Oliver’s other daughter–2-year-old Isobel.
It becomes clear that it’s impossible to know who to trust… or who is even still human…”
“I am so excited for THE NEIGHBORS. It’s a story about what scared me as a kid, what scares me as a parent, and the terror that shadows queer and trans people who are raising families in 2022,” said Doyle. “Letizia Cadonici’s witchy, haunted art provides such a beautiful portal into this other world. I sincerely hope you’ll walk through and see what’s inside.”
“I am a huge fan of horror and mystery stories so when I read the script for THE NEIGHBORS that Jude had written I really thought it was tailor-made for me,” said Cadonici. “Jude has created such a wonderful and terrifying world, full of so many intriguing symbols and monstrous creatures, that I’m seriously having the time of my life drawing every little detail!”
The Neighbors #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally in March 2023.
