[FROM THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE]

Bestselling cartoonist Ray Fawkes (Batman: Eternal, Constantine, One Soul, The People Inside) pushes sequential storytelling boundaries with his horror-inducing, transcendent tale INTERSECT. The first six issues of the series will be collected into trade paperback and available this May.

Bodies shift and merge, warring with themselves. Blood rains from the skies. A child’s song is translated into toxic, thought-destroying whispers. Everything is changing. Everything is wrong. This is the world of INTERSECT. 

INTERSECT, VOL. 1 (ISBN: 978-1-63215-279-4) hits comic book stores on May 20 and bookstores on June 2, and will be available for $14.99. It can be ordered by retailers from Diamond Book Distributors with Diamond Code NOV148042. 

More praise for INTERSECT: 

“Epitomizes the creative opportunities horror has in the comic medium. Ray Fawkes firmly rejects the retrofitting of horror film tropes and conventions that is all too common in horror comics today to deliver something truly original, truly unreplicable, and truly terrifying… Intersect just might be the scariest book ever written.” —Bloody Disgusting 

Intersect is vastly different than anything you’ve read before. Completely breaking away from traditional comics, Fawkes shows you what is capable in this medium. It’s stories like these that pave the way for other original stories and ideas to follow.” —Coming Up Comics 

“A harrowing psychological drama, Intersect tears at the most basic components of the of the human experience. It’s uncomfortable and oddly terrifying. The pacing of the story, with its constant twists and turns, never allows readers to get comfortable. It is an incredibly disorienting experience, robbing us of the truths we cling to in order to define ourselves. Fawkes presents a reality that betrays the most essential elements of identity and understanding. This is a difficult book, but it rewards those who are willing to lose themselves in it. Highly imaginative and beautifully rendered.” —Multiversity Comics 

Intersect is like nothing out there.” —Comic Bastards
