In this German tale, Lorelai is a river nymph, born to the Rhine River, living in the shadow of a prosperous town called Wochara. But at the heart of Wochara’s prosperity lies a secret deal that Lorelei and the people of Wochara struck a  long time ago. Every year, Wochara sends Lorelei a young man who becomes her husband for the year, living in comfort and luxury in her wondrous palace, while fat nuggets of gold wash up on the town shores. But not everything is as it seems and when she selects a young man who already has a lover, the deal between the people of Wochara and Lorelai is in jeopardy forever.

BOOM! Reveals a First Look at The Man Who Came Down the Attic Stairs

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at The Man Who Came Down the Attic Stairs, a new original graphic novel in stores September 18, 2019, inspired by the works of Shirley Jackson and Ira Levin, in which acclaimed comics creator Celine Loup weaves a tale of horror and suspense that captures the isolation of postpartum depression, while exploring the very real fears associated with new motherhood.

Emma is madly in love with her husband, has just moved into a beautiful new home, and is absolutely glowing in anticipation of her new life as a mother. But when the baby arrives, things quickly take a dark turn as Emma loses days and nights to the infant’s never ending screams and her husband turns into a stranger before her very eyes. Something is scaring her newborn daughter and causing Emma to see strange things in the shadows as fear takes over the once warm household. But is this terrifying presence real or just imagination? And why doesn’t her husband, who isn’t quite himself, seem to notice that anything is wrong?

Out of desperation, Eric kept drawing, painting, and then creating his own characters and worlds culminating with the beloved series, The Goon.
● The Art (and Many Other Mistakes) of Eric Powell sheds light on the deliberate and painstaking process of becoming a world-renowned comic book creator as recalled by the artist and a few of his delinquent friends.
● This extensive art book spotlights never-before-seen childhood drawings, early superhero test pages, film poster art, and the establishment of Powell’s homegrown publishing house Albatross (Exploding) Funnybooks. It’s also very funny.
