BOOM! Studios announced HARROWER, a brand new four-issue limited series from Spread creator and co-creator of The Strange Talent of Luthor Strode, writer Justin Jordan, with highly acclaimed artist Brahm Revel (Guerillas), about a horrifying ancient legend that lurks within a small, forgotten town, available in stores February 2023.
There’s nothing to fear in the quaint town of Barlowe, New York–except, that is, for the Harrower. The children wish this boogeyman was just an urban legend, but this purveyor of puritanical vengeance against the unrighteous is very real, and there’s no escape, because the Harrower seems unkillable, and spans generations, always returning…
What secrets will Jessica Brink, a teenage girl obsessed with the Harrower, uncover, and will she be able to escape the pull of her morbid fixation?
Justin Jordan is a comic book writer based out of Pennsylvania. He is best known for his original comic book series such as The Strange Talent of Luthor Strode, Spread, and Reaver with Image Comics, Urban Animal with Webtoon, and Breaklands, as well as his work on Green Lantern: New Guardians and Superboy for DC Comics.
“I love horror, and don’t get to write as much of it as I’d like. In HARROWER, I want to introduce people to a place where the real horror isn’t the legendary killer stalking you but the secrets that spawned them.” said Jordan.
Brahm Revel is a comic book artist and writer best known for his creator-owned book Guerillas, published by Oni Press. He has also worked for Marvel, Image Comics, First Second, and IDW, most notably helping to develop Jennika, the newest Ninja Turtle, for the TMNT Universe. He currently lives and works in Barcelona, Spain.
“I’ve been a fan of Justin’s comics for a long time and I’m super excited to be able to collaborate with him on HARROWER. It’s a super fun take on the slasher genre with a very interesting riff on why these bad guys continue to stalk the teens of today. It’s right in line with my sensibilities and I can’t wait to show everybody what we’ve been working on!”said Revel.
HARROWER #1 features main cover art by series artist Revel, and variant covers by highly acclaimed artists Erica Henderson (Creepshow), Michael Walsh (Carnage), and more.
“HARROWER is your next favorite slasher hit, with Justin and Brahm at the helm bringing a tightly-packed horror story with all the best elements of the genre in a new and interesting way,” said Jon Moisan, Acquisitions Editor, BOOM! Studios.
