Yesterday, IDW announced that Barker is making his return to comics with Seduth. Coming in October, this horror comic (with the art team of Gabriel Rodriguez and Jay Fotos from Locke & Key and co-writer Chris Monfette) will be coming at us in 3-D. According to IDW:
Clive Barker, himself, even gave his thoughts on the project:
In Seduth, Barker tells the tale of celebrated architect Harold Engle, who first glimpses the small cloud of darkness inside a glittering, priceless diamond, without any knowledge of the terrible plague contained within. Seduth follows Engle on a surreal journey through murder and madness to the very heart of existence and a terrible, impossible choice-to unravel the very fabric of the world, or to save it?
What do you think? Are you in the mood for a good horror comic? Are you a fan of Clive Barker's? Do you like 3-D comics? Seduth will be a 32-page comic with no ads. 3-D glasses are included.
I have always felt that comics as a medium are still in a relatively early stage in their development-there are so many roads still to be taken. It is a medium which can afford to take risks, and we're taking them. This is, in more than one sense, a dream project. It is my first chance to co-produce with my best friend Robb Humphreys on a story that really touches our shared interests in the power of hallucinations and visions. It also brought me together with Chris Monfette, who will certainly be a part of my creative life for many years to come if I have any say in the matter. Add the art of Gabriel, the color of Jay and the amazingly mind-blowing talents of Ray Zone, this fulfills my dream of Seduth completely.
