Image Comics has announced a new ongoing series from co-writers Ryan Parrott and Noah Gardner, with art by Eisner Award winner John Pearson. Entitled The Infernals, the series explores themes of legacy, family, power, and the apocalypse. It’s slated for launch in February 2024.

The Infernals will follow the son of Satan, Abraham “Abe” Morgenstern, in the month before he dies. He has to decide which of his three children will inherit his empire: Nero, a mercurial narcissist; Bee, an anxious schoolgirl; or Jackal, a questioning field operative. The problem is, Abe isn’t sure he can fully cede control of the Apocalypse. What does he have up his sleeve?

“I am so fired up (pun very much intended) to finally introduce the world to the first family of the apocalypse! Love them, hate them, or love-to-hate them—I hope you enjoy the ride, which has been rendered in such mind-blowing detail by the brilliant John Pearson,” Gardner said in a statement.

“We’re dealing with the Antichrist, their Demonic family, and the impending Apocalypse, so coming up with a visual approach to match that level of intensity meant making my own personal pact with the Devil,” Pearson added. “I’ve drawn inspiration from the lurid color palettes of Italian Giallo cinema, the rawness of late ’80s painted comics, and the feel of Vertigo titles at their peak. This is a love letter to everything that got me hooked on the medium in one glorious and hellish story.”

“Every once in a while, you hear an idea and you think, ‘Oh, someone has to do that.’ Well, when Noah pitched me his concept for The Infernals, I absolutely flipped,” Parrott said. “The themes. The characters. The imagery. The possibilities were endless. I love that it’s both epic and yet personal and intimate at the same time. We can explore commentaries on corporate culture and organized religion while also focusing on absentee fathers and sibling rivalries. It’s honestly just a complicated family drama… but the stakes happen to be the end of the world.”
