Boom! Studios sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Phil Hester and Brian Churilla’s new series The Anchor.  The series arrives in October, but there is still time to pre-order a copy.  I’m really like Churilla’s art style, and the whole vibe of the comic should put it up there with other supernatural super heroes.

THE ANCHOR #1 (ONGOING)
Written by Phil Hester
Drawn by Brian Churilla
SC, 24 pgs, FC, SRP: $3.99
Diamond Code: AUG090716

THE ANCHOR. Holy warrior, unholy war. Freak of nature, beast of burden, hulking outcast, medieval prize fighter, Viking raider… God’s own leg-breaker.

One thousand years ago a hulking outcast sought refuge in the crumbling ruins of an ancient monastery and offered in return the one thing he had to give – his fists. Transformed into an immortal warrior monk standing at the gates of Hell itself to keep our world free from its invading armies, The Anchor is mysteriously tricked into centuries of slumber. But today, this holy warrior rises to battle all the unholy monsters unleashed during his slumber.

    The preview I saw in Previews (heh) looked good and I like what Hester has been doing on the Darkness, so this is already on my pull list.
