Berger Books and Dark Horse Comics have announced a new ongoing series, via Paste, called “Everything” by writer Christopher Cantwell and artist I.N.J. Culbard (“The New Deadwardians”).
The series will follow Lori and Rick, citizens of a small Michigan town, as they try to unravel the mystery behind a series of fires, explosions and psychic disturbances which have been plaguing the town since the arrival of the mega-department store, Everything, and its all too perfect manager, Shirley. In a statement about the series, Berger Books curator and editor Karen Berger described the series as being the “baby” of Twin Peaks and Stranger Things, with Ray Bradbury, the author of Fahrenheit 451, as the godfather. However, despite the series being one of the “strangest and most surreal series” that Berger herself has published, it is also “incredibly moving and relatable.”
“Everything” is the second comic that Cantwell has written at Berger Books. The first was “She Could Fly” with artist Martin Morazzo, which was the first book at the imprint to get a second volume. Berger Books was founded as an imprint at Dark Horse Comics in 2017.
“Everything” #1 is scheduled for release on September 4. You can check out the preview pages for the issue here.
