Etrigan Returns In November For ‘The Demon: Hell Is Earth’ From Constant, Walker, And Hennessy


Etrigan Returns In November For ‘The Demon: Hell Is Earth’ From Constant, Walker, And Hennessy

DC Comics has an announcement they’d like to make, and they’d prefer to make it in the form of a poem:

Look here, fans, and take a break.
A new comic announcement we’re ready to make.
About a war on Earth to destroy all man
And a rhyming demon named Etrigan.

Andrew Constant writes this new tale of fright,
Bringing startling new layers of the Demon to light.
He’s assisted by artists of the highest skill:
Messrs. Walker and Hennessy their duties fulfill.

Fans can expect both action and chills
In a tale that addresses our modern-day ills.
In this month where we celebrate Jack Kirby’s birth
We’re pleased to announce THE DEMON: HELL IS EARTH!

The new series will be written by Andrew Constant with art by Brad Walker and Andrew Hennessy, and here’s what DC says you can expect in a press release:

The Demon: Hell is Earth is a large-scale, thrilling mix of action and terror featuring tense, conflicted relationships and brutal, kinetic combat, with no less than the fate of the world at stake. Because in the world of Etrigan, the Demon, war is literally hell.

“I was excited to work on a great, slightly lesser exposed Kirby character,” said Brad Walker, moving the needle by being the only creator with a quote in the PR. “As I’ve gotten into Andrew’s scripts, I’ve been having fun doing something tonally different than books I’ve worked on in the past. It’s fun tapping into moody, darker aspects of my art. It has a bit of a Vertigo vibe. It’s maybe not a side of me people know, but it’s stuff I am a fan of, just as much as the big, bombastic, superhero stuff.”

The book is in stores on November 15th. Here’s the solicitation and some preview art:
