Official Press Release

Starting in May, IDW Publishing, famed horror creator Steve Niles and renowned artist Fiona Staples invite fans to join the Mystery Society. The all-new, five-issue series introduces Nick Hammond and Anastasia Collins, who are the Mystery Society and bring new meaning to “underground cult” status. Each issue features a fun and sexy new adventure for this skullduggery duo, as they stealthily avoid the authorities while righting the wrongs committed in the dark recesses of the world’s underbellies.

“This book is a conspiracy-theorist cum monster-fan’s dream!” IDW Senior Editor Bob Schreck commented. “Steve and Ashley’s concept ‘Brundle-Flies’ Nick and Nora from The Thin Man with a sort of Scully and Mulder from the X-Files as this well-to-do duo run the gamut exposing the truth behind ‘real life’ conspiracies and all things that go bump in the night. And Fiona’s contribution is amazing as anyone who has seen her work will tell you. Best thing for us is… she’s bringing it to a whole new level with this series.”

Created by Niles and the legendary Ashley Wood, Mystery Society is a fast-paced, take-no-prisoners adventure series that is sure to delight fans from cover to cover. The series starts off with a bang, as Ana defends the Mystery Society’s secret headquarters, while Nick goes on a rescue mission that has him breaking into Area 51 for a bounty readers will have to see to believe! This first issue also features a cover by Wood, as well as a variant cover by Staples.

Mystery Society #1 (of 5, $3.99, 32 pages, full color) will be available in stores in May. Diamond order code MAR10 1009.
