Most of the time I get press releases for comics coming out in the next few months, but every so often something comes in that begins that anticipation early. That's the case with Lycan, a new six-issue mini-series from AfterShock Comics and Renegade Entertainment set to debut in the first half of 2022. It's penned by Mike Carey and based on a story by David James Kelly and Thomas Jane, but no artist is attached just yet.

Year of Our Lord 1777: A hardened band of international big game hunters returning from Africa are shipwrecked off a small British island. In exchange for new supplies and the repairing of their good ship The Calydonian, Lord Ludgate engages the men for a task they are particularly well suited for: find the Berserking Beast that has been eating his subjects, including a group of young Benedictine Nuns, and destroy it.

“Thomas and I have talked about working together for quite a while now, so when the chance came to merge his love and passion for the comic book medium with AfterShock's own, the timing couldn't have been more perfect,” said Joe Pruett, Publisher and CCO of AfterShock Comics. “With our proven track record of launching successful, creator-owned titles, and the talent Thomas brings to the creation of a book the opportunities for this book and our relationship are limitless.”  

Jane said, "I am beyond excited to be partnering with AfterShock Comics to develop the universe of Lycan. It’s a story I’ve been wanting to tell for a long time and I’m very lucky to have a great team of creators with David and Mike to bring it to life through the upcoming comic book series.”

No specific release date has been set for Lycan just yet, but we'll keep our eyes peeled for more information.
