Jeremy Haun, Jason A. Hurley and Jesús Hervás will fly the unfriendly skies this October in The Approach, a new horror series coming from BOOM! Studios.
“The Approach is the story of a plane that crash lands at a small regional airport in the middle of a snow storm…after being missing for 20 years…and the horrible thing that came back with it,” said Haun. “It’s our love letter to ’80s monster horror, with an absolutely terrifying creature, conjured up by our amazing series artist, Jesús Hervás.”
Here’s the description from BOOM!: When airport employees Mac and Abigail find themselves snowed in after a blizzard, they witness a terrible plane crash. After pulling a survivor from the wreckage, they realize a terrifying truth: this plane has been missing for 27 years! The nightmare has only just begun though, as the people trapped in the airport soon find themselves confronted by what this plane actually brought back. For those with a fear of flying, it’s not the sky that deserves dread, but what lies beyond it…
“It’s been exciting working with Jeremy and Jason on this series because of the challenge of illustrating the horror and suspense while revealing just enough of the unknown mysteries and terrors that loom within the approaching storm,” said Hervás. “The Approach is a wild ride, and I had a lot of fun drawing it, so I can’t wait for everyone to pick it up and start uncovering all the secrets hidden within the pages of the comic.”
Haun and Hurley previously worked together on The Beauty at Image Comics, while Hervás has worked on several horror titles in the past, including The Empty Man, Tales of Terror and Dark Ark.
