The Loveliest Nightmare Begins in August
ComixTribe announced today the upcoming release of Oxymoron: The Loveliest Nightmare, a new monthly crime/ horror series debuting in August. Writers John Lees and Tyler James are joining forces with Alex Cormack to tell a cop versus contradiction-obsessed killer thriller in the vein of Hannibal and Se7en.
The Loveliest Nightmare tells the story of Mary Clark, an afflicted detective suffering from a debilitating chronic illness, and reeling from a demotion back to street cop after her partner’s death. She hates being in uniform, resents her young, wide-eyed partner, and is persona non grata with the rest of the police department. She’s sleepwalking, but the Oxymoron case wakes her up.
When what appears to be a lone nut job in a mask jumping off a skyscraper turns out to be the opening gambit in a killer’s master plan to cleanse a corrupt city of its many contradictions, Mary sees taking him down as a chance to prove herself and earn back her Detective badge. But once the true severity of the Oxymoron’s plan is revealed, she realizes there are much higher stakes than her career in play.
Each issue of the series features a standard cover by Alex Cormack and a variant cover by industry superstars and upcoming talent, including Charles Paul Wilson, III, Iain Laurie, Joe Mulvey and more.
