Image releases more details on Lemire + Sorrentino’s ‘Tenement’

The Bone Orchard Mythos project will kick off in June.

Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino’s The Bone Orchard Mythos horror universe will continue in June with Tenement, which Lemire referred to as “the centerpiece of our new horror universe up to this point.”

Previously teased as a six-issue miniseries, Tenement will now run 10 issues beginning in June with an oversized first issue.

Tenement is the first book I started developing in the early days of planning The Bone Orchard Mythos with Andrea Sorrentino,”Lemire told Popverse. “In many ways it will be the centerpiece of our new horror universe up to this point. It will be our longest story so far and, like Gideon Falls, this new series will follow an ensemble of characters and the readers will really be able to spend time with them and invest in their stories. This will also be a book that starts to connect all the threads of our previous Bone Orchard books and begins to reveal the larger mythology we have been building. Andrea’s work on this one is even more mind-blowing than usual (if that’s possible).”

In Tenement, Lemire and Sorrentino will reveal the dark secrets of seven residents who live in the same building — starting with a sinister death.

“Everything is told through the stories of seven characters—which will all be equally important tales—and penned by Jeff with his trademark care for the human side,” Sorrentino told Ppverse.” Are you wondering what the Bone Orchard is supposed to be…? Tenement has the answer.”

Here’s a look at the first issue’s variant cover by Christian Ward:

The Bone Orchard Mythos universe launched last spring with The Passageway, which was followed in September with Ten Thousand Black Feathers. After Tenement comes Starseed, which was previously teased to be arriving at the end of 2023.
