The debut issue of The Nice House On The Lake by James Tynion IV and Álvaro Martínez Bueno, launches on June 1. Everyone who was invited to the house knows Walter.

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?

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!
