Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ next is Houses of the Unholy

[

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ next graphic novel is set for August 2024 release and it’s called Houses of the Unholy. It follows the December release of Where the Body Was, which AIPT rather liked! Houses of the Unholy promises the team’s trademark crime noir storytelling but with some darker, more sinister thriller twists than their usual fare.

“Houses of the Unholy is something I’ve been describing as Satanic Panic Noir. It’s somewhere in-between a creepy horror story and a f*cked-up noir, and directly tied to the Satanic Panic craze of the ’80s,” said Brubaker. “The book really speaks to my obsessions with cult horror, and plays with the demonic tropes of classic horror from Hammer to Carpenter to Stephen King. The fear that was everywhere back then has clearly resurfaced, and that made me want to dive back into those dark waters and try to find a Brubaker-Phillips take on noir and horror at the same time.”

So what’s Houses of the Unholy about?

In this new tale, an FBI agent from the cult crime beat and a woman with a past linked to the Satanic Panic are drawn into a terrifying hunt for an insane killer hiding in the shadows of the underworld.

This pulse-pounding story asks: can you ever escape your past, or are all your bad decisions just more ghosts to haunt you, wherever you go?

PORTLAND, Ore. 02/12/2024 — The multiple Eisner Award winning creative duo of bestselling writer Ed Brubaker and superstar artist Sean Phillips—and team behind such chart-topping titles as Criminal, Pulp, The Fade Out, Reckless, Night Fever, and Where the Body Was—will hit shelves once again with their upcoming original graphic novel, Houses of the Unholy. This highly anticipated, standalone crime thriller is set to release in August from Image Comics.

Brubaker and Phillips’ names have been stealing headlines left and right lately with The Hollywood Reporter’s buzzy scoop that Amazon has given a full series order to Criminal, with Brubaker co-showrunning and writing the pilot. Criminal is perhaps one of the most beloved comic book series in the pair’s catalog and first cemented them as an ‘auto-buy’ brand for many readers.

Now, their latest offering, Houses of the Unholy promises the team’s trademark crime noir storytelling, but with some darker, more sinister thriller twists than their usual fare.

“Houses of the Unholy is something I’ve been describing as Satanic Panic Noir.

Houses of the Unholy (ISBN: 9781534327429) will be available at local comic book shops on Wednesday, August 14 and independent bookstores, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and Indigo on Tuesday, August 13.

Houses of the Unholy will also be available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
