ComixTribe to Publish Acclaimed Horror Series AND THEN EMILY WAS GONE

| January 17, 2014


This week, ComixTribe announced it will be publishing AND THEN EMILY WAS GONE, a 5-issue horror mystery series by John Lees (The Standard) and Iain Laurie (Horror Mountain.) ComixTribe has released a teaser trailer for EMILY  along with the announcement.

AND THEN EMILY WAS GONE tells the story of  a haunted former police detective who goes in search of a missing girl, and finds Hell instead. The first issue will make its direct market debut later this summer, with subsequent issues releasing monthly, a first for ComixTribe.

“We’re obviously already all in on John Lees,” said ComixTribe publisher Tyler James. “John’s work on THE STANDARD and the upcoming OXYMORON: Loveliest Nightmare series has been tremendous. But, I really think EMILY is going to be his calling card. Likewise,  Iain Laurie’s unique artistic vision complements John’s creepy script like a fine wine…at least, I think its wine. It’s red.”

“I’m thrilled that  there’s a space for AND THEN EMILY WAS GONE in ComixTribe’s growing roster of quality titles,” said Lees. “I’m excited to expand our partnership, and bring EMILY to the direct market.”

Short-run, black and white versions of AND THEN EMILY WAS GONE have sold out on the UK comic convention circuit, and earned Lees and Laurie tremendous critical acclaim from big name talent.

This is a weird comic, but in a wonderful way. Best of all, it’s a comic with its own vision, a unique and bold vision. Michael Moreci,  Hoax Hunters,  Skybreaker
