AfterShock Comics is setting its sights far in the future. The publisher has certainly given us something to look forward to with some of its recent announcements and Maniac of New York is no different. The new series from writer Elliott Kalan, artist Andrea Mutti, and letterer Taylor Esposito isn't expected until February of next year, but it sounds like its worth the wait.

Four years ago, a masked slasher began stalking the streets of New York City. Maniac Harry is inhuman, unkillable and unstoppable. Which is why the authorities’ solution has been to ignore him, and let New Yorkers adapt to a world where death can strike at any moment. When Maniac Harry starts killing his way through the subway system, trauma-haunted political aide Gina Greene and disgraced NYPD detective Zelda Pettibone become determined to go rogue and destroy him. But how can they fight a monster when they can’t fight City Hall?

Maniac of New York is a horror story about how crisis situations become our new normal. A slasher movie-style unstoppable killer is marauding through New York City, and since nobody knows how to solve the problem, everyone in power has given up and decides to just live with New Yorkers occasionally being hacked to death by an axe-wielding maniac.” says writer Elliott Kalan. “The series will look at how life changes, and doesn’t change, in the city from different angles — starting in our first arc with a story about an idealistic mayoral aide, a jaded police detective, and a very bad day for commuters on the subway.”

Maniac of New York was originally inspired by Friday the 13th: Part VIII – Jason Takes Manhattan and Kalan's favorite movie of all time, the original Taking of Pelham One Two Three.
