Lemire’s ‘Frogcatchers’ hops into shops this fall

Lemire will write and draw a new graphic novel coming in September from Gallery 13.

Jeff Lemire stays pretty busy with monthly comics, but in addition to his work on titles like Black Hammer and The Terrifics, he still finds time to both write and draw original graphic novels.

Over on his blog he’s announced his next one — Frogcatchers, a ” surreal descent into one man’s psychosis” due out from Gallery 13 in September.


Here’s the description from the publisher:

“A man wakes up alone in a strange room with no recollection of who he is or how he got there. The padlocked doors and barren lobby reinforce the strangeness of this place. This is—as he reads from an old-fashioned keychain beside his bed—the Edgewater Hotel. Even worse, something ominous seems to be lurking in one of the rooms.

“But when he meets a young companion—the only other soul in this vast, enveloping emptiness—his new friend begs him not to unlock the door. There must be something behind it…but what?

“A haunted hotel on the edge of reality, an endless bridge spanning an infinite ocean, and a man and a boy looking for a way out. This is the setting for a boundary pushing, genre-defying new work of fiction by one of comics’ master storytellers.”

Gallery 13 released Lemire’s last graphic novel, Roughnecks, in 2017. You can read more about it and check out some preview pages over at the AV Club.
