BOOM! Studios has announced Basilisk, a brand new supernatural horror series. Written by Cullen Bunn, with art by Jonas Scharf, colors by Alex Guimarães, and letters by Ed Dukeshire, Basilisk unleashes an epic tale of vengeance and survival as a monstrous threat ravages the countryside and the only ones who can stop it are mortal enemies.
‘Who Can Stop The Chimera? Five individuals bound by a cult-like hivemind, they terrorize small towns with their horrifying supernatural sense-based powers, leaving death and destruction in their wake. Regan, one of the Chimera, escaped and has been in hiding, with her murderous eyes bound, overcome with guilt. Until now… when a victim from her past forces her to hunt down the other four of her kind.’
Series author Cullen Bunn says
Basilisk is an epic, dark, fantasy horror story, and I can’t wait for readers to meet the players on both sides of this tale of revenge. Here we have a woman who has absolutely nothing left to lose hunting down a group of would-be gods, each of whom can use one of the five senses to destroy those around them. They’re terrifying in their own way–the heroes and the villains.
Basilisk reunites the entire creative team from BOOM! Studios’ 2018 supernatural horror Bone Parish.
Jonas Scarf, on getting the band back together, says
Getting back together with the team of Bone Parish and exploring a new original horror story with them has been an absolute pleasure. In Basilisk, we draw inspiration from mythology and ground it deep within the mountains of Appalachia as we follow a mysterious group of superpowered individuals called the Chimera.
Featuring main cover art by series artist Jonas Scharf and variant covers by illustrators Christian Ward and Rafael Albuquerque, Basilisk #1 is set to hit the stands in June 2021.
