Skybound Entertainment has announced the creative teams for Afterschool #3 which lands in stores in August 2022.
In this issue, writer Jill Blotevogel (Scream: The TV Series, Shining Vale) teams up with artist Marley Zarcone (Shade, the Changing Girl) to present a standalone horror story about a different kind of sibling bonding. Afterschool #3 will be colored by Giovanna Niro (Two Moons, Summoner’s War: Legacy) and lettered by Pat Brosseau (Birthright, Manifest Destiny), and features a stunning cover by Veronica Fish (Archie, Sabrina the Teenage Witch).
An annoying younger sister doesn’t begin to explain Leda’s situation. Living with Izzy means perpetual chaos—meltdowns, pranks, and zero privacy. But when a killer breaks into their home, Izzy might just be their best defense.
“Children are pretty much sociopaths until we teach them civility. I’ve always loved the idea of crafting a darker, bloodier HOME ALONE about a wild child-sociopath having to defend her home against a killer-psychopath,” said Blotevogel. “Afterschool’s mandate pushed me to create a sibling relationship between teen Leda and young Izzy that gives the primal battle real emotional stakes.”
Skybound Presents Afterschool #3 arrives on August 17, 2022.
