This February sees the debut of Chained to the Grave, a new series from writers Brian Level and Andy Eschenbach and artist Kate Sherron. The five-issue mini-series is set in the Old West offering a unique visual style filled with supernatural weirdness. IDW Publishing has shared an early preview of the first issue which you can check out below.

Outlaw Roy Mason has come back from the dead, chained to the headstone that marked his grave. It’s a lawless time, a magical time, and the undead Roy finds himself caught between a rock and a hard place as he sets out in search of treasure. But Roy, trying to do right by the wife and children he left behind, soon finds out that everything is not always as it seems…

“The process of making Chained to the Grave has been a great pleasure,” says Level. “With Andy's weird genius and Kate's singular and luminous art, I've had a hand in creating one of the more unorthodox westerns on the market. For such a rotten guy, Roy Mason has brought us along for a pretty magical ride!”


“Brian and I really set out to make something strange and fun with the pieces of something familiar, and Kate’s pen just amplifies that notion. It’s got all the things you’d want from a Western romp, but it toys with those tropes, focusing on the blast radius of Roy Mason’s bad decisions, all through the vivid lens of Kate’s amazing style,” says Eschenbach.

“I love a good Western, but I loathe the usual Western palette — tan, brown, the occasional khaki green... I’d really rather not,” says Sherron. “I can’t thank Brian and Andy enough for crafting this wild story where cowpokes and color happily coexist on the page.”

Chained to the Grave #1 features a main cover by Sherron and a retailer incentive variant by Level. It's set for release on February 3rd, 2021.
