It’s a good week for Dan Watters, writer of Home Sick Pilots, among other titles. Not only did Marvel announce a new Loki miniseries that he’s writing, but BOOM! Studios also revealed Seasons Have Teeth, a new miniseries he’s doing with artist Sebastián Cabrol.
The four-issue series features a retired photographer who tries to track down the physical embodiment of the seasons — each a powerful god-like monster. So yes, the seasons literally have teeth.
“I’m overjoyed to be writing this book for Sebastián,” Watters said. “From the dark depths of winter to the joys of summer, he brings such wonderful nuance to both human emotion and monsters—and in The Seasons Have Teeth we are bringing you both in abundance.”
Here’s the description from BOOM!:
Andrew, a retired conflict photographer, lives a life steeped in regret, pain, and sorrow. When the seasons arrive–each one embodied as powerful god-like creatures–everything for Andrew begins to change. As he risks everything to track down Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter, he can’t help but hope that capturing the perfect picture of each will help him find his redemption…and maybe–just maybe–bring color back to his world.
“Dan has created an incredible landscape filled with both mystical and earthly creatures,” Cabrol said. “It’s a unique take on something so marvelous as the idea of wild and sentient seasons. As an artist I’m having a great time exploring this world.”
