Comics writer and author Paul Cornell will make his “comeback” to comics with a new series from Vault Comics, I Walk With Monsters. Cornell will work with artist Sally Cantirino, and colorist Dearbhla Kelly on the title.
“This is a hugely important project for me, both in terms of how personal it is, and how much of a comeback to comics it is,” Cornell said on his blog. “It’s the story of a young woman and her friend who can be a monster, going hunting. I think it’s my best work in the medium, my attempt to create horror that comes from a real place, with lots of heart and character. To see the pages come alive with such glorious artwork has been an absolute joy.”
Over the past few years, Cornell has been focused on writing prose, but his comic book resume is still very impressive, having worked on titles like Doctor Who, Captain Britain and MI: 13, Action Comics, Black Widow, Demon Knights, Wolverine, Saucer Country and This Damned Band.
Look for the first issue on Nov. 11.
