I am a big fan of We Kill Monsters and am presently drooling at the opportunity to re-enter the world and mythology surrounding the Lost Room. I even asked about this in my interview with them last November (here).
WE KILL MONSTERS writers Laura Harkcom & Christopher Leone announced at the Comic Con edition of “The Totally Rad Show” that “The Lost Room: Season II” will be published by Red 5 Comics next year!
The book is a sequel to their original television mini-series “The Lost Room,” which they co-created, co-wrote and co-executive produced for The SyFy Channel and Lionsgate Television. “The Lost Room” starred Peter Krause, Julianna Margulies and Kevin Pollak. The 6-hour series garnered much critical acclaim, with The New York Times calling it “…a jackpot for a mystery series,” and Entertainment Weekly citing it as “… one of the most creative ideas to hit TV in a while.” The show was nominated for two Emmys and a Writers Guild Award.
Since its debut in 2006, “The Lost Room” has continued to increase in awareness and build an ever-growing fan base. In September of 2009, Salon.com featured an article about the show’s rising profile, raving, “Forget the latest from J.J. Abrams… ‘The Lost Room’ is a cult hit waiting to happen.” Ain’t It Cool News said this weekend, “The Lost Room miniseries was, I thought, up there with ‘Battlestar Galactica’ as one of the best Sci-Fi Channel originals ever produced.”
The comic book picks up one year after the events of the miniseries.
The story of the Key continues as it falls into the hands of a new protagonist: a hardened criminal who was finally framed for the one crime he didn’t commit. The new Motel Man escapes prison looking for revenge, only to find himself in a new cell: Room 10.
