In Fraternity by Jon Ellis, Hugo Petrus, and Lee Loughridge, a childhood friendship is put to the test due to a shadowy college fraternity. And that’s “shadowy” in the demonic sense! The graphic novel will be published by Humanoids next Tuesday, August 9th, 2022, but you can get your first look at the book right here today at The Beat.
Here’s the description of the book from Humanoids:
Wyatt’s roommate has been acting pretty strange ever since he joined that frat… This is FRATERNITY, the latest horror graphic novel from Humanoids, written by first-time graphic novel writer Jon Ellis with art by Hugo Petrus and coloring by Lee Loughridge. Replete with blood sacrifices, demon possessions, and all sorts of occult weirdness, FRATERNITY is a contemporary horror about childhood friends Jake and Wyatt, whose relationship is put to the test when Jake joins a shadowy fraternity. The gory thriller explores family bonds, grief, and what brotherhood really means—as well as what happens when the regular pressures and temptations of college take a dark and demonic turn…
After suffering a tragic loss, Wyatt can’t wait for a fresh start away at college. Too bad freshman year isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, especially when you’re a grieving introvert. If it wasn’t for his best friend and roommate Jake, who he’s known since they were kids, Wyatt would never leave his room. But when Jake joins a mysterious fraternity, Wyatt unearths something beyond sinister within its red brick walls… Now Wyatt must fight like hell to save his friend or risk losing him to eternal fraternal damnation. All hail Amaymon, King of the Southern Gate!
