SKOTTIE YOUNG & JORGE CORONA RETEAM FOR HAUNTING NEW SERIES THE ME YOU LOVE IN THE DARK THIS AUGUST
PORTLAND, Ore. 05/19/2021 — The bestselling creative team behind the Eisner Award nominated Middlewest—Skottie Young and Jorge Corona—reunite for a haunting new tale in, The Me You Love in the Dark. The new five issue miniseries is set to launch from Image Comics this August.
In this chilling new series an artist named Ro retreats from the grind
of the city to an isolated old house to find solace and inspiration—but
the muse within is not quite what she expected.
“When Jorge and I were planning our follow up to Middlewest we both wanted to do a love story and a horror story. So, we decided to combine the two,” said Young in an exclusive on the announcement at Comic Book Resources.
“Then, like Ro in the comic, I went and rented a creepy house, turned
off the lights, lit some candles and started writing. I didn’t come out
until I was done.”
Fans of Stephen King and Neil Gaiman will enjoy this beautiful, dark, and disturbing story of discovery, love, and terror.
Corona added: “After the amazing journey of Middlewest,
Skottie and I wanted to take a stab at a more intimate story. Dark and
moody, this book is an exploration into love and relationships, the
highs and the lows, where fantasy meets reality to show the darkest
corners of human nature."
The Me You Love in the Dark #1 (Diamond Code JUN210046) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, August 4.
The Me You Love in the Dark #1 will also be available for
purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple
Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
