Welcome your new, creepy ‘Neighbors’ in March

The new title by Jude Ellison S. Doyle, Letizia Cadonici and Alessandro Santoro will debut from BOOM! Studios.

Get out your welcome basket: writer Jude Ellison S. Doyle, artist Letizia Cadonici and colorist Alessandro Santoro will bring The Neighbors to BOOM! Studios later this year.

It’s described as “changeling horror” — which, according to folklore, was when a fairy stole a child and replaced them with a fairy.

“I am so excited for The Neighbors. It’s a story about what scared me as a kid, what scares me as a parent, and the terror that shadows queer and trans people who are raising families in 2022,” said Doyle. “Letizia Cadonici’s witchy, haunted art provides such a beautiful portal into this other world. I sincerely hope you’ll walk through and see what’s inside.”

Here’s the full description from BOOM!:

When Janet and Oliver Gowdie move to a quaint mountain town, their daughter Casey becomes part of a horrific chain of events revealing that their neighbors are anything but what they seem. Soon, an unsettling old woman named Agnes Early fixates on Janet and Oliver’s other daughter–2-year-old Isobel.

“I am a huge fan of horror and mystery stories so when I read the script for The Neighbors that Jude had written I really thought it was tailor-made for me,” said Cadonici. “Jude has created such a wonderful and terrifying world, full of so many intriguing symbols and monstrous creatures, that I’m seriously having the time of my life drawing every little detail!”

Here’s a look at the first issue’s variant covers by Ramon Perez, Frany and Fabio Moon:

And here are some of Cadonici’s character designs:
