Not satisfied with scaring the crap out of me in the mountains, writer Rich Douek and artist Alex Cormack are reuniting to take the terror to the deep with Sea of Sorrows. Debuting in May 2020 from IDW Publishing, the comic blends horror, folklore, and history in the vast waters.

In the aftermath of the Great War, the North Atlantic is ripe for plunder by independent salvage crews. When a former naval officer hires the SS Vagabond, he leads the ship to a sunken U-boat, and a fortune in gold. Tensions mount as the crew prepares to double cross each other, but the darkness of the ocean floor holds deeper terrors than any of them have bargained for!

“One thing that was always on my mind while writing Road of Bones was how we have this whole tradition of horror — sitting around a campfire, telling stories, trying to scare each other,” said Rich Douek. “And yet, you can go back to any time period, in any place, and find very real and horrific things people have done. Putting these supernatural and historic horror elements side by side in Sea of Sorrows lets us offer up a brand new tale that will take things in some crazy and unexpected directions."

“The ocean is a horrifying and mysterious place,” said Alex Cormack. “And Sea of Sorrows reveals the isolation and horror of being in an alien world on our own planet, facing threats that should be impossible chasing you through an inescapable setting. With the character designs and especially the story, this would be a book I’d draw just for myself. Rich is a talented writer and great collaborator. I’m happy to be along for the ride!”

Sea of Sorrows features colors by Cormack and letters by Justin Birch. There's a retailer incentive cover available from Katie Swatsky. The first issue is set for release on May 20th, 2020.
