Jeremy Haun is Writing a New Horror Series for BOOM! Studios Called THE RED MOTHER

Jeremy Haun is teaming up with artist Danny Luckert and BOOM! Studios to bring fans a new original horror series called The Red Mother. It sounds like a pretty intense story and I love that it’s not an adaptation of something else. Check out the synopsis:

There are dark things just beyond this reality. Horrors that we cannot quite see. Things wanting to get in. After losing her eye and the man she loves during a brutal attack in an alley, Daisy McDonough is left trying to put the pieces of her life back together. Just when she thinks she can start the process of healing and moving on, she begins to see strange things through her new prosthetic eye.

She can see the Red Mother. And the Red Mother can see her right back!

That story sounds like it could be really freaky and put people on the edge of their seats. Haun talked about returning to the horror genre with the following statement:

I’ve worked in nearly every genre out there—fantasy, sci-fi, superhero, crime. Somehow I keep coming back to horror. I love telling horror stories in comics. It works differently than just about any other medium. There are no jump scares. It’s all about building tension from page to page. THE RED MOTHER is me telling my favorite kind of story in the best possible way. I’m lucky to have Danny Luckert as my partner on this project. His art perfectly captures this story. His ability to convey real world emotion, day-to-day life, and absolute otherworldly horror just gives me chills.

Meanwhile, Luckert also expressed his excitement for the project:

I’m really excited to return to the horror genre and can’t wait for people to see what creepiness the RED MOTHER team has cooked up. It’s gonna be a wild story with a lot of red ink.

BOOM!’s Senior Editor, Eric Harburn, said:

What’s scarier than the horrors that we can’t see? Jeremy and Danny dive right into the territory of invisible terrors to create a chilling vision of what lies just beyond our reality. THE RED MOTHER is the story of what happens when those horrors manifest, and we belatedly realize that ignorance truly was bliss.

The Red Mother #1 is set to release on December 11. Will you be reading?
