Cullen Bunn, Leomacs and Jason Wordie tell the ghost stories that ghosts tell each other in the new series.
Master of horror Cullen Bunn will team with artist Leomacs for a new series from BOOM! Studios, Ghostlore — which is about the ghost stories ghosts tell each other. They’ll be joined by colorist Jason Wordie on the new series, which kicks off in May.
“Ghostlore is something of an ambitious concept,” Bunn said. “It started with a simple question I asked myself. ‘What ghost stories would ghosts tell?’ From there, though, it spun into this epic story of family, loss, grief, and—just possibly—the end of the world. It’s been in my head for a while, but I wanted to wait until the stars aligned, so to speak, to even give it a try. I’m lucky to be working with an artist as talented as Leomacs on the main story, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the cadre of amazing creators who will be illustrating the ghost stories in each and every issue. It all comes together in a book unlike anything else I’ve worked on.”

The first issue features stories by Tom King, Mitch Gerads, Dan Mora, Christopher Cantwell, Javier Rodríguez and more.
DC has revealed more details about the new Batman: Brave and the Bold series they announced back in November. The series will be an anthology, with not every story featuring Batman.
The comic takes its title from the series that ran from the 1950s until 1983, which started as an anthology title but eventually evolved into a Batman team-up title. It was replaced by Batman and the Outsiders, and the title has been dusted off for a couple of mini-series projects since then.
The first issue will have four stories:

Magdalene Visaggio and Craig Cermak reunite for a new story featuring the mischievous Jinx.
Jinx Holliday, aka Li’l Jinx, the classic Archie Comics character who was born on Halloween, will return to the world of Archie Horror in Chilling Adventures Presents … Jinx: A Cursed Life.
Jinx made the jump to Archie’s more frightening imprint last year in an anthology that featured a framing story by Magdalene Visaggio and Craig Cermak. They’ll reunite for this new story featuring the character in a comic-length adventure, joined by colorist Ellie Wright and letterer Jack Morelli.
“It is a blast to not only continue Jinx’s exploits but to now venture into the occult and otherworldly!” Cermak said. “Throughout this tale’s hellish predicament, getting to develop the charmingly hilarious interplay between Jinx and Danni is a particular stand-out as an artist—so much room for very fun expressions and mannerisms. Modernizing both characters has been a true honor. The scripts by Magdalene continue to be sharp, fast-paced delights, providing a great mix of humor and horror for me to go wild. Rock ’n’ roll, flying burgers, possession, and friends who’ve got your back—what more could you ask for?”

Alex Paknadel, Cody Ziglar, Julius Ohta and more will pit the “greener” Spider-Man against the sadistic symbiote.
Miles Morales and friends will face off with Carnage in a crossover event that will run through both their titles starting in May.
Carnage Reigns will kick off with an alpha issue by writers Alex Paknadel and Cody Ziglar, and artist Julius Ohta. The seven-part crossover will run through issues of Carnage, Miles Morales: Spider-Man and the recently launched Red Goblin. Oh, and Iron Man is involved, as Carnage is trapped in the “Extrembiote Armor” Tony Stark created during King in Black. The whole thing will wrap up in an omega issue in June.
“Carnage Reigns is an old-fashioned David and Goliath story pitting a greener Spider-Man against the most sadistic monster in the Marvel Universe—Cletus Kasady!” Paknadel explained to Bloody Disgusting. “Miles has only been this out of his depth on a handful of occasions, which is a gift from a storytelling perspective. I’ve really enjoyed crafting this tale with Cody Ziglar, and we’ve developed a really fun, really productive working shorthand and that fun is present on the page! We know this story will satisfy fans of both characters in their first-ever crossover!”
