Every soap opera fan knows that discovering your wife has secret hotel reservations will only lead to heartbreak, but when those reservations are for the Lunar Lodge, things get real deadly real fast.
Screenwriter Tyler Marceca makes his comics debut with artist Mirko Colak, colorist Brian Valenza and letterer Frank Cvetkovic on this new miniseries coming from Dark Horse Comics.
“The idea for Lunar Lodge was born from a simple, albeit screwy, question; if I were a werewolf, how would I protect myself and those around me on nights when the moon was full? I mean, who would want to wake up the morning after a full moon covered in blood and mud with no memory of how many people, and livestock, they killed. There would have to be a solution for this, right? And if there was a solution… you better believe some enterprising folks would find a way to profit from it,” Marceca said.

Comic will tell the story of “the gospel of Arthur’s bloody rise to power and his unholy reign.”
Cullen Bunn will bring his unique brand of horror to Camelot as he and artist Mirko Colak team up for Unholy Grail, coming in July from AfterShock Comics.
“I’ve been fascinated by Arthurian legends since I discovered T. H. White’s ‘The Once and Future King’ as a kid,” Bunn writes on his website. “From that point on, I wanted to explore every variation of the story, from Thomas Malory’s work to the movie ‘Excalibur’ to the comic ‘Camelot 3000.’ One of the things that intrigued me was how there are so many interpretations of the epic — as should be the case with all great myths — and so many different takes on the story. At some point, years ago, I started to wonder what the Arthurian legend might look like if they were written as a horror story. I thought about it so much, I guess, that I started dreaming about it. I woke from one of those dreams and scribbled the sentence ‘The demon, who had no name in his own tongue, but would come to be called Merlin by mortals, uncoiled its serpentine body and slithered out of the shadows.’ That was over 20 years ago, but I still have the notebook where I first pondered the concept.”
