“Morrison and Child do a great job of introducing a sprawling cast of 1970s teens.”—Polygon
“Right away, this comic put me in that Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark sweet spot.”—Syfy Wire
BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at PROCTOR VALLEY ROAD #3, the next issue of the star-studded new horror limited series from visionary writer Grant Morrison (Klaus), Alex Child (BBC’s Holby City), Naomi Franquiz (Tales from Harrow County), colorist Tamra Bonvillain and letterer Jim Campbell about the mysterious monsters that haunt Proctor Valley Road – and the four misfit teenagers who must stop them. PROCTOR VALLEY ROAD #3, developed in partnership with UCP Graphic, is available on May 12, 2021.
The girls are supposed to stay out of trouble…and away from the haunted stretch of Proctor Valley Road. But a stolen police car leads to the return of the Proctor Valley Bull and more danger than anyone could imagine…
PROCTOR VALLEY ROAD #3 features main cover art by Franquiz, along with variant covers from superstars Chris Wildgoose (Alienated), Christian Ward (Invisible Kingdom), and James Harren (Ultramega).
