SAN DIEGO, CA (November 13, 2023) – Buckle up for a chaotic ride through a cosmic nightmare in the countryside.
IDW Publishing proudly presents GOLGOTHA MOTOR MOUNTAIN, a mind-bending six issue limited series which follows two brothers, Elwood and Vernon, as their life is abruptly turned into trippy terror when an interstellar rock crashes through their meth lab. With one batch left to deliver before they can start a new life, the duo have the bright idea to mash the cosmic rock and pass it off as drugs, unknowingly turning all different kinds of terrible people – neo-nazis, corrupt cops, dangerous addicts – into terrifying mutants. Can the siblings survive the madness and escape Golgotha once and for all?
“This book is genuinely unhinged, bizarre, and unlike anything I’ve ever written before. In fact, it’s probably the first Southern Gothic, action, sci-fi, drug-fueled body horror concoction ever made,” says co-writer Lonnie Nadler. “Something like Mad Max by way of Cormac McCarthy. Yet, at its heart, GOLGOTHA is a story about two brothers at odds who have to find a way to trust one another in the face of absolute bedlam. As you can probably tell from my description alone, the whole team is trying hard to make sure this is like no other comic being released today, and that’s invigorating to be a part of.”
