Artgerm Lau reveals his variant cover for “Mercy”, a new gothic horror comic by Mirka Andolfo

On Tuesday, renowned comic book artist Stanley “Artgerm” Lau revealed his cover artwork for Mercy, a new gothic horror book written and illustrated by comic industry veteran Mirka Andolfo (DC Comics Bombshells, Unnatural). Without further ado, take a look at Lau’s variant cover below.

But what is Mercy all about? Here’s the official breakdown of the book taken from Mercy‘s official Previews page:

When the placid mining village of Woodsburgh is disturbed by a series of brutal murders, the settlement is in turmoil. And as the first snow covers the chaos in a white blanket, a mysterious woman in black arrives, eliciting a totally different kind of unrest. But who is Lady Hellaine, really? And what’s her secret agenda? Acclaimed UNNATURAL creator MIRKA ANDOLFO presents a sensual Victorian gothic horror about otherness, damnation, redemption, and what it means to be a monster in a horror tale perfect for fans of Penny Dreadful, Crimson Peak, The Alienist, Parasol Protectorate, and Dark Shadows. Visit for additional MERCY bonus content, including exclusive art, a live-action comic trailer, and supplemental story material.
