Ray Fawkes has written and illustrated some incredible graphic novels – “One Soul” and “The People Inside” instantly spring to mind – but his new Image series, “Intersect,” promises fully painted work on a monthly basis. This, folks, is a reason to get real excited.
Fawkes, who has been doing a lot of writing over at DC, will seemingly be the sole architect for this series, which he sums up succinctly: “I don’t believe I can properly prepare readers for the experience with any up front statements: you’ll have to read it for yourself.” The Image press release calls it a horror story, and the ghostly images we are sharing set up quite the visual series.

Image Comics Press Release
Bestselling cartoonist Ray Fawkes (Batman: Eternal, Constantine, One Soul, The People Inside) brings his signature darkness to Image Comics with INTERSECT, an all-new and shockingly original ongoing horror series coming November 2014.
Bodies shift and merge, warring with themselves. Blood rains from the skies. A child’s song is translated into toxic, thought-destroying whispers. Everything is changing. Everything is wrong. This is the world of INTERSECT.
“I’m thrilled to present Intersect—a complete realization of a deeply haunting notion I’ve been eager to share for years,” said Fawkes. “I don’t believe I can properly prepare readers for the experience with any up front statements: you’ll have to read it for yourself.”
“As anyone who familiar with One Soul or The People Inside can tell you, Ray is one of comics’ brightest new talents, and it’s a genuine pleasure to have him here at Image,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “Intersect is completely different from everything else we’re doing, and all the better for it. If you want recycled ideas or reimagined characters, there’s the whole rest of the industry for you, but it’s the new ideas being developed by people like Ray are what will take this medium into the future.”
A story of struggle and transformation, INTERSECT takes readers on an unforgettable journey—a quest for understanding and purpose in a city gone truly mad. Readers must discard all assumptions about horror. INTERSECT, with its luminous, fully painted artwork, walks the line between the beautiful and the grotesque, the sensual and the horrific. Coming to Image Comics this November.
