Eisner Award-winning artist Michael Walsh will team up with an all-star lineup of collaborators—Chip Zdarsky, Kelly Thompson, Ed Brisson, and Jeff Lemire—in The Silver Coin. This ongoing horror anthology series will launch from Image Comics this April.
Each issue of The Silver Coin will tell a tale of terror in a shared supernatural world interwoven with common characters and overlapping stories. The series begins in 1978 with a failing rock band whose fortune suddenly changes when they find the mysterious Silver Coin. Little do they know that fame comes with a cost, and a curse is always hungry.
The creators on this are so good, each bringing their own experiences from not only the horror genre but suspense, crime, and more. I can’t wait to check it out, especially after reading Walsh’s recent work on The Sleep Stores.
It’s nice to see more of these anthology series starting to take off, similar to James Tynion IV and Steve Foxe’s work on Razorblades. They’re a nice change of pace from the serialized, continuity-heavy superhero titles we usually see every month and I’ll never turn down more horror books from Image.
