Anne Rice is working with IDW to create a comic mini-series adapted from her historical horror novel Servant of the Bones.
What’s it about? Here’s what Amazon had to say:
Anne Rice, among the most iconic creators in horror, brings one of her richest stories to IDW in this six-part tale of murder, demonic revenge, and the redemptive power of faith. When a beautiful young woman is brutally slain in the streets of New York City, the demon Azriel sets out to discover who killed her, only to find a far more sinister plot that could end the world. Once a human in ancient Babylon, Azriel is a spirit of rage and terror that gradually rediscovers his humanity through holy vengeance and spiritual love.
Rice worked with writer Mariah Huehner and illustrator Ray Dillon. The excerpt below is only the first few pages, but it’s pretty cool.
