Dynamite Entertainment announced Shannon Maer is releasing Sirens Gate as a fully painted comic.
The urban fantasy tale introduces and focuses on Tara, an aspiring writer. She’s never thought of herself as anyone special, but all that is about to change. When a mysterious young man extends an unexpected invitation, Tara is awed at the opportunity to meet with her literary idol, Lady Rose. This unique encounter sparks a series of events, forever thrusting her into a world where vampires, werewolves and all manner of supernatural beings become her new normal. What Tara once assumed to be nothing more than the imagined pages of dark fiction, slowly begins to unravel itself as the true reality.
“As the pages began coming together, it felt like another level of dimension added to my work,” said creator Shannon Maer. “I loved exploring a scene from multiple angles, and still feeling like the entirety of the book was a singular painting.”
“Shannon has poured his heart and soul into this project and I believe that is reflected here,” said editor Becky Fuller. “This has become much more than a passion project for us, as it is a story that has been years in the making. We hope you enjoy reading about Tara as much as we’ve enjoyed telling her story!”
Sirens Gate #1 is scheduled to arrive in October 2022.
