James Tynion IV, Álvaro Martínez Bueno, and Jordie Bellaire Take Us to The Nice House On the Lake

Get ready for James Tynion IV‘s most ambitious story yet, The Nice House On The Lake, alongside his Detective Comics partner Álvaro Martínez Bueno and colorist Jordie Bellaire!

Everyone who was invited to the house knows Walter—well, they know him a little, anyway. Some met him in childhood; some met him months ago. And Walter’s always been a little…off. But after the hardest year of their lives, nobody was going to turn down Walter’s invitation to an astonishingly beautiful house in the woods, overlooking an enormous sylvan lake.

It’s beautiful, it’s opulent, it’s private—so a week of putting up with Walter’s weird little schemes and nicknames in exchange for the vacation of a lifetime? Why not? All of them were at that moment in their lives when they could feel themselves pulling away from their other friends; wouldn’t a chance to reconnect be…nice? Wouldn’t an escape from the horrors of their everyday lives be…idyllic?

Would you accept this invitation from one of your oldest friends?

In the first twelve-issue season of The Nice House On The Lake, the overriding anxieties of the 21st century get a terrifying new face—and it might just be the face of the person you once trusted most. Launching on June 1 as a monthly DC Black Label maxiseries. It features a cover by Álvaro Martínez Bueno and a card stock variant cover by Martin Simmonds.
