Official Press Release

This April Surrogates illustrator Brett Weldele and OLYMPUS writer Nathan Edmondson warn you to close your eyes in their five-issue tale of survival horror, THE LIGHT!

"THE LIGHT is everything I love about horror combined into one story," Edmondson explained. "From a terror rooted in something everyone can relate to and broken protagonists doing their best to overcome absolute despair, this is the comic I've been wanting to read. Brett brings it to life with stunning visuals that grow in intensity as the story progresses."

In THE LIGHT, a mysterious virus infects anyone that looks into an electric light. The few survivors include a father escaping town with his blindfolded daughter as the infected burn alive from the inside out. A fierce, action-packed and gritty tale of survival, THE LIGHT is 28 DAYS LATER meets 30 DAYS OF NIGHT.

THE LIGHT #1, a 24-page full color comic book with a cover price of $2.99, will be available for order in the February issue of Previews and goes on sale April 14.
