Alisik; a new gothic horror series. Preview & Trailer launched today!
Statix Press has generated a lot of buzz since the launch of the imprint from Titan Comics last September, and that excitement continues with the upcoming release of Alisik #1 on February 28.
Check out their animated trailer for this new series, along with stunning interior preview pages and covers for issue 1.
Cover A is by art-house superstar Junko Mizuno (Ravina The Witch?) and Cover B is by series artist/co-creator Helge Vogt.
Written by Hubertus Rufledt with haunting art by Helge Vogt, Alisik is a cross between Emily The Strange and Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book – a beautiful dark and gothic tale of mortality and what happens after death.
When Alisik wakes up alone in a cemetery, she thinks she’s in the middle of a nightmare. Terrified, she flees into the night, but realizes she is invisible to everyone she meets. She really is dead, with no memory of how it happened … and only the ghostly residents of the graveyard can help her unravel the mystery of her afterlife.
“Alisik started as a short animation I did during my time at Disney – something different, a bit darker, but not horror. Hubertus liked it so much, that we wanted to make a comic series out of it,” said Alisik co-creator and artist Helge Vogt, “Alisik became a part of my life. It’s the best I’ve done so far, and I’m thrilled that it’s coming out English!”
Featuring an all-new cover by superstar artist, Junko Mizuno (Ravina the Witch?), Alisik #1 will hit stores and digital devices on February 28, 2018.
