Written by award-winning comic book writer, John Lees, best known for his work on the acclaimed horror series “And Then Emily Was Gone”, “Mountainhead” is part horror, part psychological thriller, with a sinister undercurrent driving fans to devour it from cover to cover. The five-issue series is drawn by artist Ryan Lee (Archer & Armstrong), featuring colors from Doug Garbark and letters from Shawn Lee.
“Mountainhead is a story that means a lot to me, one anchored in character and human drama, but which will also push the envelope with suspense and dread in unorthodox, surprising ways. Abraham Stubbs is a character who has lived in my head for some time, a kid raised from infancy to be a survivor but who could never have anticipated the challenges he’s faced with here.” – John Lees.
“Visceral, suspenseful, unnerving, and at times, absolutely bonkers – Mountainhead has all the trademarks of quality horror. There’s also a pedigree of measured story-craft amidst the havoc and darkness that John brings to this yarn. I want to mirror his original vision with my best work, to give readers a lasting story where the craft and passion we put into it comes through in each and every moment.” – Ryan Lee.https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/mountainhead-collectors-edition/https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/IDW-Logo-600x253.pnghttps://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/IDW-Logo-150x63.pngNews
