DSTLRY announces three more titles that will debut next spring

Titles by Scott Snyder, Francesco Francavilla, James Tynion IV, Christian Ward, Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso will arrive next year.

DSTLRY has announced three more titles that spin out of its recent anthology The Devil’s Cut, all of which will debut next spring.

The titles include White Boat by Scott Snyder and Francesco Francavilla, Spectregraph by James Tynion IV and Christian Ward, and The Blood Brothers Mother by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso.

DSTLRY, the new comics company formed by former Comixology execs David Steinberger and Chip Mosher, released The Devil’s Cut in print back in August and a digital edition a couple of weeks ago. They’ve also released print editions of Gone by Jock and Somna by Becky Cloonan and Tula Lotay, which were followed this month by limited-edition digital releases (The digital Somna #1 should go on sale on the DSTLRY site this week). Blasfamous by Mirka Andolfo was announced to come out this week.

With these three announcements, that leaves two more titles that were featured in The Devil’s Cut that you can expect to see in the future — one by Elsa Charretier and another by Marc Bernardin and Ariela Kristantina.

Here’s more info on the three titles:

White Boat

White Boat will arrive in March by the reunited team of Scott Snyder and Francesco Francavilla (Night of the Ghoul).

White Boat is by far my most ambitious and expansive deep dive into horror yet,” Snyder said. “Francesco and I are using DSTLRY’s oversized format to unearth a sprawling and terrifying mythology that spans oceans and continents.”

White Boat revolves around a titular mega-yacht that the super-rich use to traverse the globe—floating islands where your every desire can be fulfilled. And getting invited on board should be a dream come true…that is until the crew traps and transports you to a remote island where secret cults have existed for millennia, working on something called “The Human Project.” Does the White Boat ship you to paradise or sink you into hell on earth?

“I’m very excited to work with Scott and DSTLRY on a project with this scope,” Francavilla said. “It’s a rare story that balances claustrophobic psychological terror with global conspiracy. It’s simply epic; we can’t wait for you all to embark on this journey with us.”


Two award-winning creators, James Tynion IV and Christian Ward, team up for Spectregraph, a haunted house story.

“We’ve been cultivating these ideas for years, and we promise a descent into horror like you’ve never seen before—this is a visceral, confrontational take on the haunted house story,” Tynion IV said.

Spectregraph revolves around an isolated mansion nestled into the coastline, a short drive north of Los Angeles. Rumors have haunted the place for years—its owner a titan of American industry, with a strange fascination in the occult and the paranormal. The richest men and women in the country have whispered to each other, trying to understand what he was building alone in that mansion for all those years. And now finally, with his death, and his estate open for sale… they can finally find out for themselves.

Spectregraph is an acid-fueled psychedelic nightmare. I can’t wait for everyone to experience it and find themselves haunted by our ghosts, the likes of which have never seen before,” Ward said.

Look for the first issue in April.

The Blood Brothers Mother

The 100 Bullets team of Brian Azzarello and Edurado Risso team up once again for The Blood Brothers Mother, a brutal western about three kids trying to rescue their kidnapped mother:

THE BLOOD BROTHERS MOTHER follows three children—their step-father gunned down by their recently paroled father; their mother kidnapped; their family torn asunder. The kids set off to rescue her across the wild Texas frontier. Throughout their journey, they’ll face the harsh elements of an unforgiving landscape, filled with wild animals—and men—hungry for blood.

Merciless bounty hunters and more pursue the children as they embark on a relentless quest to rescue their family. One of the children also hides a secret bound to complicate their passage. Along the way, they’ll learn the real cost of revenge—not just in lives, but in how it stains a soul. While revenge may be satisfying in the moment, it leaves a yearning behind that lasts a lifetime. And once you taste it, nothing else is ever so sweet.

“Eduardo and I have been sitting on this story for years. When we first discussed it, neither of us thought we were ready to tell it. Our perspective, it wasn’t right,” Azzarello said. “Westerns are where America expresses its myths, but the truth of America is violence— something we first explored in 100 Bullets. The frontier was a brutally harsh environment, but fertile; it fed the extremes of human morality. The desert is a hell of a sandbox to set stories in.”

“The Blood Brothers Mother has offered an amazing opportunity to explore a time and place Brian and I have yet venture into,” Risso said. “It’s not the most friendly, but it should be memorable.”

The Blood Brothers Mother will kick off in May.
