This September writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Ramon K. Perez are launching a new creator-owned horror comic called Stillwater via Skybound.

Colorist Mike Spicer is also on the project, and the first issue is slated to hit shops on September 16. The official press for the comic (which you can find below) is billing it as Gideon Falls meets The Walking Dead, and surely, sales on par with either of those (or even somewhere between) would make everyone involved very happy indeed.

You can find full press for Stillwater below, along with three interior pages…enjoy!

The New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award winning writer Chip Zdarsky (The White Trees, Daredevil, Sex Criminals) and Eisner, Harvey, and Shuster Award-winning artist Ramón K Pérez (Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand, Jane) dive into a world of horror and intrigue in an all-new, ongoing series from Image/Skybound Entertainment this September—Stillwater.

In the town of Stillwater, nobody dies. That’s not just a promise. It’s a threat.

“I’m thrilled people are finally going to see Stillwater! This idea’s been percolating in my for years now, and it’s been fun working with Ramon to build this tiny, strange world! I’ve always wanted to write a horror comic so I can show the world that I’m not JUST creepy, I can also write creepy!” said Zdarsky. “I love getting to explore immortality on a small stage, the idea that you can live forever but just within such a constrained space. It’s been a treat getting to write characters struggling with that terrifying deal.”

Pérez added: “It’s been a joy to step away from the superhero genre and delve into the horror, thriller, and a dash of mystery genre with Chip on Stillwater! I hope readers are as unsettled as I was drawing the book…”

Stillwater #1 (Diamond Code JUL200017) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, September 16.

Stillwater #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.






  1. I’m looking forward to this. Perez’s art is sometimes hit or miss with me, but this looks like some of the best work he has done to date. Zdarsky is always worth a look in my book. Sign me up!
