Image/Skybound Announce Clean and Explicit Covers Options to Hotly-Anticipated New Horror Series Coming May 2022
LOS ANGELES 02/17/2022 — Today Image/Skybound announced new clean and explicit cover options to I Hate This Place, a new supernatural horror series from the all-star team of Eisner Award-nominee Kyle Starks (Sexcastle, Rock Candy Mountain), artist Artyom Topilin (Ice Cream Man Presents Quarantine Comix Special), and colorist Lee Loughridge (Deadly Class, The Good Asian).
In order to provide retailers and fans with options, each issue of I Hate This Place will have open-to-order covers with the new series title and explicit version of the series’ original title, F*ck This Place.
“We’ve heard the requests from fans and retailers to have different versions of I Hate This Place #1 that meet their needs, so we’ve decided to offer a variety of options for each issue of the series,” said Jon Moisan, Editor at Skybound Entertainment. “Kyle, Artyom and Lee have created a captivating horror series that really speaks to the fears we have about our uncertain futures, and we know you’re going to fall in love with the first issue, no matter the title on the cover.”
In this buzzed-about new series, Trudy and Gabby have inherited a farmhouse and are ready to start the next chapter of their lives together…except it’s already home to a mysterious force that’s attracted ghosts, aliens, and all kinds of supernatural beings for decades. Now, Gabby and Trudy must play by the “house rules” in order to survive the most frightening place on Earth.
The available covers for the debut issue include:
- I Hate This Place #1 CVR A (Diamond Code MAR220046)
