“… it’s probably the first Southern Gothic, action, sci-fi, drug-fueled body horror concoction ever made.”
IDW has announced a release date and a new artist for Golgotha Motor Mountain, which was one of nine titles they announced last year as part of the IDW Originals line.
Robbi Rodriguez will replace Ryan Lee, who was originally announced as the artist, with Marissa Louise providing colors. They will work with co-writers Matthew Erman and Lonnie Nadler, as well as letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou. Finally, Nikola Čižmešija rounds out the team, who will draw “a backup short manga that is in-universe to the story.”
As for the comic itself, it sounds a bit bonkers.
“This book is genuinely unhinged, bizarre and unlike anything I’ve ever written before. In fact, it’s probably the first Southern Gothic, action, sci-fi, drug-fueled body horror concoction ever made,” Nadler said. “Something like Mad Max by way of Cormac McCarthy. Yet, at its heart, Golgotha is a story about two brothers at odds who have to find a way to trust one another in the face of absolute bedlam. As you can probably tell from my description alone, the whole team is trying hard to make sure this is like no other comic being released today, and that’s invigorating to be a part of.”

The Joe Hill-written story will arrive under the ‘Creepshow’ banner next March.
Author Joe Hill and artists Jason Ciaramella and Michael Walsh will bring one of Hill’s short stories to comics next year under the Creepshow banner — something Hill is intimately familiar with.
“I’m always glad to renew my acquaintance with The Creep and reconnect with the gleeful gross-outs that are the hallmark of Creepshow in all its manifestations, from film to TV to comics,” Hill said. “I wrote ‘Wolverton Station’ over a decade ago, working longhand while I traveled the UK by train for a book tour, and right from the start I knew I was writing a Creepshow kind of thing.”
Hill’s history with Creepshow started with the 1982 film directed by George A. Romero and written by his father, Stephen King. Hill appeared in the opening segment of the film, as the child punished by his father for reading a Creepshow comic. Several of Hill’s short stories also served as the basis for the more recent Shudder TV series.
