Bring on the 'Horde'! Marguerite Bennett And Leila Leiz Will Haunt Your Dreams
Arriving in comic shops next week – just in time for Halloween – comes one hell of a haunting, housebound horror story about the things we let control us. From the pen of writer Marguerite Bennett (ANIMOSITY, DC Comics Bombshells, Batwoman) and brush of artist Leila Leiz (ALTERS, Nvrlnd), it’s HORDE, 72 pages of mystery, suspense and terror presented in full color on the finest paper stock and in the popular oversized European hardcover format.
After the death of her father, Ruby Ando tries to reconnect with her estranged and isolated mother, whose hoarder house is a nightmare labyrinth of secrets and dangers. All the love Ruby was never shown she sees her mother lavish on her treasures and trinkets, the possessions that possess her. But when Ruby desperately tries to free her mother, the house wages war, ensnaring both women within its maze. Brought to hideous and twisted life by a mother's love, the “Horde” is determined to purge Ruby from the collection – or see her join it forever.
Senior Retailer Relations Manager and AfterShock Epicenter Host RuthAnn Thompson spoke with Marguerite Bennett about HORDE and its inspirations at last month’s Rose City Comic-Con. You can see the interview right here:
The original graphic novel hits comic shop shelves on October 23rd, but if you happen to be at Baltimore Comic-Con this coming weekend, you might be able to snag this exclusive convention edition and have it signed by Leila Leiz herself! She’ll be sitting at Booth #2001.
