The Demon Will Rise May 14, 2024

May 9, 2024—New York, NY— This May, Amazon’s Comixology Originals exclusive digital content line is releasing Raise Hell!, a coming-of-age horror comedy illustrated by GLAAD Award nominated cartoonist Ray Nadine (Light Carries On, Messenger, Station Six) and written by Jordan Alsaqa (Cooking with Monsters, Our Sins are Scarlet). In this supernatural 6-issue monthly series set in the mid-2000s, a few bored teens summon a demonic familiar. Raise Hell! issue #1 makes its appearance on May 14, 2024.

Raise Hell! is a love letter to our own teen years,” says Alsaqa. “When Ray and I met, we bonded over our mutual love of Ska, horror, and the anime of the mid-2000s. It’s a time period we’re nostalgic for, so many of our story ideas come from recalling our favorite childhood memories and injecting the supernatural and demonic into them.”

Bored best friends Victor, Reeves, and Miri decide to end their summer vacation with a bang. Their goal? To call forth their own personal demon and bind it to their souls. Really, what better way is there to end summer vacation in style than a blood sacrifice between friends?

Unfortunately, the friends are tight on cash and buy a do-it-yourself summoning kit from a sketchy local mall kiosk. As the new school year starts, Alistair the Malicious proves to be more of a headache than they ever could’ve prepared for–making trouble for staff and students alike. The three find their junior year full of lazy imps, popular witches, mystic janitors, and all manners of supernatural hijinks and otherworldly dangers. As the trio of teens find their friendship tested, Alistair can’t help but start to feel for the kids he’s been soul-bound to. It’d all be heart-warming, if not for the potentially world-ending demonic possession his meddling leads to.

Raise Hell! is about the confusing emotions, messy relationships, and strange adventures that come with the last few years of high school. Also, demons. So many, many demons.
