Announced a few months ago, The Neighbors is a new 5-issue limited series published by BOOM! Studios by Jude Ellison S. Doyle (Maw) with artist Letizia Cadonici (House of Slaughter) and colorist Alessandro Santoro.


Here’s how BOOM! Studios describes The Neighbors comic miniseries:

When Janet and Oliver Gowdie move to a quaint mountain town, their daughter Casey becomes part of a horrific chain of events revealing that their neighbors are anything but what they seem. Soon, an unsettling old woman named Agnes Early fixates on Janet and Oliver’s other daughter–2-year-old Isobel.

It becomes clear that it’s impossible to know who to trust… or who is even still human…

Doyle is tapping into personal and current fears for the series. As the writer explained:

“I am so excited for THE NEIGHBORS. It’s a story about what scared me as a kid, what scares me as a parent, and the terror that shadows queer and trans people who are raising families in 2022. Letizia Cadonici’s witchy, haunted art provides such a beautiful portal into this other world. I sincerely hope you’ll walk through and see what’s inside.”

Letizia Cadonici added:

“I am a huge fan of horror and mystery stories so when I read the script for THE NEIGHBORS that Jude had written I really thought it was tailor-made for me. Jude has created such a wonderful and terrifying world, full of so many intriguing symbols and monstrous creatures, that I’m seriously having the time of my life drawing every little detail!”

The Neighbors #1 features cover art by highly acclaimed artists Miguel Mercado (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), Rámon K. Perez (Jane), Frany (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Fábio Moon (Daytripper), and Ariela Kristantina (Maw).
