Description

WRA1TH. - An original story set in the world of Joe Hill's Novel "N0S4A2 "

by Joe Hill.

Art by CP Wilson III.

A NOTE FROM JOE HILL:

According to Hill, "The world of NOS4A2 is very, very big, and I only had a chance to explore a part of it in the course of the novel. I told the story I wanted to tell, but I also feel there's a lot more to discover. In NOS4A2 we learn about Charles Talent Manx III, who has kept himself alive for over a century by draining an essential life force out of children, warping them into giddy monsters. When he's done with them—when Charlie has what he wants—he takes them to Christmasland, where they live forever and ever in an eternal Christmas Day. They live for fun and are good at having it, whether they're playing a game of tag... or a bloody game of scissors for the drifter. In Wraith we're going back to Christmasland at an earlier time, to find out what happens when some unlucky grown-ups find themselves on Gumdrop Lane and Charlie's children decide to have some fun with them. It's very much a standalone story, and it's my intention to craft something that can be loved by people who have never cracked the cover of NOS4A2, while hopefully giving those who liked the book a new Charlie Manx tale to enjoy."

In Wraith: Welcome to Christmasland, Hill is joined by illustrator Charles Paul Wilson III (Stuff of Legend), who provides interior art and creepy Christmasland-themed covers, as well as by his Locke & Key partner Gabriel Rodriguez, who is providing covers for each issue. Issue 1 (re)introduces the reader to Charlie Manx, his world, and his car, a vintage 1938 Rolls Royce Wraith that runs on human souls instead of gasoline. When a luckless child falls into Charlie's grasp, her new best friend soothes her with a story: his story. From there the series introduces a new cast of characters to Christmasland and fully delves into its wonderfully devilish delights, as the sound of sleigh-bells ring in the background…

Sounds pretty damn cool to me, I love 70's horror flicks!

The art featured here is by Charles Paul Wilson III’s first sketch of Charles Talent Manx III from NOS4A2, along with an illustration of two happy visitors to Christmasland!

Stay tuned for WRA1TH, a 5-issue comic from IDW, set in the world of NOS4A2, beginning summer 2013. Art by CP Wilson III, variant covers by Gabriel Rodriguez (the artist from the Locke & Key series).
