The Bone Orchard Mythos Takes Terror To Outer Space In ‘Starseed’


The Eisner-winning creative team behind Gideon Falls, Primordial, The Passageway, Ten Thousand Black Feathers, and Tenement—Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino—will take The Bone Orchard Mythos outside the realm of Earthly gravity with the upcoming original graphic novel, Starseed. This harrowing tale of extraterrestrial horror and thrills will hit shelves in October from Image Comics.

Starseed will bring Lemire and Sorrentino’s terrifying supernatural vision beyond our planet to Mars. Here readers will follow seven members of a rescue team in search of their missing colleagues… but the darkness they find instead goes far beyond scientific comprehension.

“We wanted to take the horror of The Bone Orchard Mythos to a whole new setting, and Andrea and I both love sci-fi and cosmic horror,” said Lemire. “This is a critical book in the mythos and readers won’t see the ending coming.”

Sorrentino added: “As an huge fan of the Alien franchise I couldn’t wait to finally work on some horror sci-fi, and Starseed incarnates all that I love about the genre: isolation, atmosphere, and a big dose of fear of the unknown.”

This chilling new story is perfect for fans of horror/science fiction mashups like that of Alien, The Event Horizon, and Jeff Vandermeer’s Annihilation.

The Bone Orchard Mythos: Starseed will be available at local comic book shops on Wednesday, October 2 and independent bookstores, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Indigo, and Waterstones on Tuesday, October 15. The Bone Orchard Mythos: Starseed will also be available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
