Sweet Tooth creator Jeff Lemire knows how to celebrate the day after Father’s Day, with the announcement of a heart-breaking tale called Mazebook about a father’s journey through grief over the death of his daughter.
Described as an “ambitious and haunting comic series about family, grief, and loss,” the five-issue mini-series will focus on a building inspector who becomes convinced his deceased daughter is trying to contact him. He uses an unfinished maze from her journal and a map of the city to make his way to a different reality and bring his daughter home.
Dark Horse’s press release included early praise from fellow creators:
Each issue will clock in at 48 pages. The first issue will include a variant cover by Andrea Sorrentino.
Dark Horse Comics will release Mazebook #1 on September 8.
