San Jose’s infamous tourist attraction The Winchester Mystery House is getting the comic treatment once again in a new series from Source Point Press.
If you aren’t familiar with it, the Winchester Mystery House was the home of Sarah Lockwood Pardee Winchester, the widow of William Wirt Winchester and heiress to a large portion of the Winchester rifle fortune. After losing her husband and child, Sarah moved from Connecticut to San Jose, California where she bought a farmhouse. From 1886 to 1922, construction seemingly never ceased as the original eight-room farmhouse grew into the world’s most unusual and sprawling mansion. Supposedly it is haunted by all the ghosts of people killed by Winchester firearms.
The new comic will be written by Joshua Werner and illustrated by Dustin Irvin.
“The Winchester Mystery House is a labyrinth full of secrets, and it is my great pleasure to bring those secrets to the reader and unravel them,” Werner said. “Sarah Winchester was a brilliant person, incredibly ahead of her time, and deliciously complex. Weaving her tale and the story of this house into the comic book medium with the beautiful art of Dustin Irvin is a dream come true. And the reader is in for some shocks and surprises.”Continue reading “Source Point Press will explore ‘The Winchester Mystery House’ in a new series”
