Burnside writer Jon is back with a new project
Horror comic in pipeline
Burnside comic book writer John Lees has announced details of a new project.
He is set to reunite with the rest of the team behind the popular comic And Then Emily Was Gone for a one-off horror comic called Quilte, which will be available at the Edinburgh Comic Con event taking place this weekend (April 2/3) at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
The project also features artist Iain Laurie, colorist Megan Wilson and letterer Colin Bell, and focuses on Dr. Karla Quilte, a psychologist who uses her unique gifts to treat patients afflicted with recurring nightmares.
However when she is tasked with helping troubled young Adam Whitlock, her journey into his mind leaves her facing forces far worse than just bad dreams.
John said: “The response to Emily was simply overwhelming, and I’ve been eager to get the gang back together for something new from pretty much the minute we finished on that book.
“And the creative team have taken things to new heights, with Iain crafting some of his most disturbing imagery ever.
“I feel confident that Emily fans will be more than happy with Quilte.
“Edinburgh Comic Con felt like a natural choice for debuting the comic.
“We had an absolute blast at the show last year and we were treated very well by both the organisers and the passionate comic fans in attendance.”
After its initial release in Edinburgh this weekend, Quilte will be published by the ComixTribe company worldwide later this year.
