THE CHIMERA RISES IN SUPERNATURAL HORROR COMIC BASILISK

The team behind Bone Parish is reuniting for Basilisk, a new supernatural horror series debuting in June from BOOM! Studios. Writer Cullen Bunn, artist Jonas Scarf, colorist Alex Guimarães, and letterer Ed Dukeshire are joining forces for a tale of vengeance and survival. A monstrous threat ravages the countryside and the only ones who can stop it are mortal enemies.

Who Can Stop The Chimera? Five individuals bound by a cult-like hivemind, they terrorize small towns with their horrifying supernatural sense-based powers, leaving death and destruction in their wake. Regan, one of the Chimera, escaped and has been in hiding, with her murderous eyes bound, overcome with guilt.  Until now… when a victim from her past forces her to hunt down the other four of her kind.

"Basilisk is an epic, dark, fantasy horror story, and I can't wait for readers to meet the players on both sides of this tale of revenge. Here we have a woman who has absolutely nothing left to lose hunting down a group of would-be gods, each of whom can use one of the five senses to destroy those around them. They're terrifying in their own way--the heroes and the villains,” said Bunn. “This is another collaboration with the amazing Jonas Scharf, who worked with me on Bone Parish, and I think his work here is even more amazing, even more deific, even more haunting.”

“Getting back together with the team of Bone Parish and exploring a new original horror story with them has been an absolute pleasure. In Basilisk, we draw inspiration from mythology and ground it deep within the mountains of Appalachia as we follow a mysterious group of superpowered individuals called the Chimera,” said Scharf. “I‘m excited for people to check it out!”

“Cullen is a true genius when it comes to horror -- this series takes full advantage of his vast knowledge of the genre, as well as Jonas’s evocative and dark illustrative style, to tell the terrifying tale of ancient legends hidden within the dark shadows of our contemporary landscape,” said Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Get ready to face your demons and your fears as we follow the bloody trail of death and destruction left in the wake of the monsters within the pages of Basilisk.” 

Basilisk #1 features a main cover by Scarf and variant covers by Christian Ward and Rafael Albuquerque. It's set for release in June 2021.
