“Lair” creator Gilbert Deltrez teases new horror comic “The Deep Dark”
Gilbert Deltrez held out on us!
After playing coy when we asked him earlier this week what his next moves will be now that his Galactic Rodents of Mayhem crowdfunding campaign has closed (though still available in-demand), now he’s on social media teasing what Headshot Comics’ next project will be: a Lovecraftian horror book titled The Deep Dark.*
We won’t hold it against you, Gilly…. this time.
Lovecraft meets Jaws? Sounds like a weird idea for a RomCom, sir, but you’re the pro at this point!
In all seriousness, The Deep Dark marks a return to the horror genre for Deltrez, who wrote the dimension-hopping thriller Lair last year. You can check out the solitaire teaser image below, and let your mind swirl with ideas of how the light-hearted romance played out when Lovecraft met Jaws.
