Image Comics has released more details on Bone Orchard Mythos, the project Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino teased last week.
According to the press release, the project will include multiple original graphic novels and miniseries under the Bone Orchard Mythos banner, starting with an OGN called The Passageway that’s due out next summer. It’s about a geologist sent to a remote lighthouse to investigate “a strange phenomenon.” That will be followed in the fall by a miniseries titled Ten Thousand Black Feathers and then another original graphic novel hardcover in 2023 titled Tenement.
“These will be just the first few projects in The Bone Orchard Mythos,” said Lemire. “But that’s just the start. We are planning a vast mythology of horror stories that will last for years to come.”
Sorrentino said he and Lemire have been working on the project for more than a year.
“Each one of these books is imbued with such a moody and a chilling atmosphere that is just so good to work with,” Sorrentino said. “Seriously, when we started discussing the project, I felt like I was finally home. These are the kind of stories I want to read as a graphic novel and comics fan, and the kind of things I want to draw as an artist. Every series and graphic novel of The Bone Orchard Mythos will help develop and show this vast hierarchy of horrors we’ve created while, at the same time, serve as a complete, stand alone story. I’m utterly excited that this news is now out in the world. I promise you we’ll all have a lot of fun with this.”
The Passageway will arrive in comic shops June 15. Here’s a look at several promo images that accompanied the release:
