Originally published via “The Empire of the Tiny Onion” Substack newsletter, writer James Tynion IV and artist Gavin Fullerton are bringing their horror comic The Closet to physical print for the first time as this three issue miniseries launching this June from Image comics.
The creative team for the project also includes colorist Chris O’Halloran as well as letterer Tom Napolitano.
According to the press release, “in The Closet, Thom is moving cross-country with his family and dragging the past along with them. His son, Jamie, is seeing monsters in the bedroom closet and will not let them go.”
In an exclusive on the announcement with ScreenRant Tynon said, “I’m absolutely thrilled to be bringing the first of the original comic series I’ve been publishing through my Substack to print,”The Closet is a personal horror story that’s been living in the back of my head for a very long time, and I can’t wait to introduce it to a larger audience.”
Fullerton added: “The set up of our story I’m sure will be familiar to many horror fans. A little boy is afraid of the monster in his closet. But also many horror fans will know that these familiar tropes are there to guide the audience into something much much deeper.”
In addition to the main cover by Fullerton, variant covers by Michael Avon Oeming and Declan Shalvey will also be available.
