Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino Launch the Shared Horror Universe – The Bone Orchard Mythos – Coming in 2022
The Eisner Award winning, bestselling creative team that brought fans Gideon Falls and Primordial—Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino—will grow their empire with the launch of The Bone Orchard Mythos. This shared horror universe of interconnected stories will launch from Image Comics in 2022.
The Bone Orchard Mythos is an ambitious expansion for the powerhouse creative team and will span multiple books and across a variety of different storytelling formats. Each title will tell its own unique, self-contained tale—some as stand-alone hardcover graphic novels, some as miniseries comics, and some as longer format maxiseries comics—but they will all be set within the same world and add to the overall Bone Orchard mythology.
The team plans to release at least two new titles each year, for the next several years. In Summer 2022 the horrors begin with a hardcover graphic novel titled, The Passageway which follows a geologist sent to a remote lighthouse to investigate a strange phenomenon. In Fall 2022 Lemire and Sorrentino will follow up with a miniseries titled, Ten Thousand Black Feathers, and then another original graphic novel hardcover in 2023 titled Tenement.
The Passageway original graphic novel (ISBN 978-1-5343-2224-0) will be available on Wednesday, June 15 and in bookstores on Tuesday, June 21. It can be pre-ordered at your local comic book shop or independent bookstore or via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and Indigo.
