Image Comics Announces New Surreal Horror Series, ‘Slumber’ From The Writer Of ‘Child’s Play’

by Olly MacNamee

Writer Tyler Burton Smith (Kung Fury, Child’s Play) and artist Vanessa Cardinali will be bringing their new ongoing horror series, Slumber to comic book stores this March from Image Comics.

“In Slumber, readers meet Stetson—a nightmare hunter and a dream detective. She runs a shoddy back-alley business where she helps clients sleep at night by entering their dreams and killing their nightmares. But Stetson’s past comes back to haunt her when she tracks down a literal living nightmare—a serial killer that murders people in their sleep.”

Smith explains more:

“Slumber is an exploration of the surreal world of dreams that is meant to be as weird, funny, unsettling and unpredictable as the wildest dreams that we’ve all experienced. Vanessa’s artwork is the perfect marriage of these elements to bring this crazy story to life.”

Cardinali added:

“Working on Slumber gave me the delightful opportunity to bring to life all the weird, surreal, and psychedelic worlds that Tyler has imagined. This is a wildly original story peppered with unexpected humor and heart. I hope readers enjoy it half as much as I enjoyed drawing it.”

Slumber #1 will be available on Wednesday, March 16th.
