Titan Comics And Statix Press To Explore Mortality, Afterlife With Alisik

One day, you're going to die. Maybe it will be a long time from now. Maybe it will be tomorrow. Who knows. What's important is that you're spending the time you have left, however long that is, doing something important: reading a Bleeding Cool article.

But if this concept interests you, know that Titan Comics, via their new European comics imprint, Statix Press, is interested as well. That's why they're publishing Alisik, a series by Hubertus Rufledt and Helge Vogt billed as "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."

From the press release:

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.

With a cover by Junko Mizuno, Alisik #1 is out on February 28.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
