NYCC 2013 Preview: ‘The Crow: Pestilence’ Coming In 2014 From IDW
  |  @   |  

IDW Publishing has done a fine job since taking over the license for James O’Barr’s The Crow, with a bevy of new series based on the classic property. IDW has announced their next series for the goth spirit of vengeance with The Crow: Pestilence coming in 2014. The miniseries will be written by novelist Frank Bill (Donnybrook), and this will mark his first comic work. Art on the series will be provided by Drew Moss (The Colonized), with covers coming from The Crow creator O’Barr.

Pestilence takes the Crow down to Juarez, Mexico for another round of revenge, and that’s about all we know so far. We can assume some tragic figure is going to die tragically and then come back to life and kill a bunch of people as is par for the course with The Crow.

IDW Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall had this to say about the new writer of the series:

“I’ve never seen lead characters take more brutally inventive abuse than the kind Frank Bill heaped on his characters in Crimes (in Southern Indiana) and Donnybrook. I’m excited to see Frank bring such a strong voice and visceral storytelling ability to comics, especially on something as well-suited to his skills as The Crow. It was great to find out that James O’Barr was equally intrigued by Frank’s work, comparing him to Jim Thompson and other literary greats.”

You can take a look at the preview page for the series below and keep a look out early next year when the story hits stores.
