Aaron Mahnke, the creator of the Lore podcast, is launching a five-issue mini-series at IDW Publishing titled Wellington, that examines the darker side of history.
Written by New York Times bestselling author Delilah S. Dawson (Star Wars) with Aaron Mahnke, featuring artwork by Piotr Kowalski (The Dark Tower) and colors by Brad Simpson (The Witcher), this fear-fraught tale – debuting December 2019 – introduces the creature-hunting Duke of Wellington, investigator of the most thrilling mysteries and monsters found on the smash hit podcast!
“History and folklore are deep wells, and they are honestly a fiction writer’s dream come true,” says Mahnke. “With an amazing cast of characters just waiting to be called upon, and centuries of belief in the supernatural setting the stage, I’m excited to share these powerful stories in a brand-new way!”
“As a huge fan of the pop culture phenomenon that is Lore, I jumped at the chance to work with Aaron Mahnke and the Wellington team to merge history with dark supernatural adventures,” says Dawson. “Add in the atmospheric art by Piotr and Brad, and you’re going to see the spirit of Lore resurrected in an entirely new way. This is a book you’re going to want!
This sounds great, and I do love the monster/lore hunter tales, and I think fans of The Witcher series are going to eat this up.
