Peter Milligan is one of the most celebrated writers in comics, and he’s returning to Image for his latest foray.
The Berkeley-based independent comics publisher announced today that Milligan will team with Argentinian artist Leandro Fernandez (The Incredible Hulk, Queen & Country) for a new series entitled The Discipline.
The series, billed as a different take on the erotic thriller genre, is set to hit stores the first week of March.
In the official announcement, Milligan described the story as “the edgiest story I’ve written.”
The Discipline marks Milligan’s first endeavor with the world’s largest creator-owned imprint, and should perform well on the strength of his past work.

[OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE]
THE DISCIPLINE IS A DARK, SEDUCTIVE MYSTERY
An all-new series about sex, death, and metamorphosis
Bestselling writer Peter Milligan (X-Force / X-Statix) and artist Leandro Fernandez (Queen & Country) team up for an all-new series, THE DISCIPLINE, launching from Image Comics this March.
In THE DISCIPLINE #1 readers meet Melissa, one woman who—between fighting her sister and hating her husband—still finds time to fall in lust with a stranger who’s an awful lot more than he seems.
“This might be the edgiest story I’ve written,” said Milligan. “In most ‘erotic thrillers’ sex is the end-game, the objective. In The Discipline the erotic charge is simply a step towards something stranger, darker… beyond human.”
What appears to be a simple seduction is revealed as something much darker and more dangerous.
This controversial and erotically-charged tale of sex, death, and metamorphosis begins with an explosion of carnality and weirdness. THE DISCIPLINE #1 (Diamond Code JAN160523) will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, March 2nd. The final order cutoff deadline for comic book retailers is Monday, February 8th.
