Image Comics have announced “Stillwater,” a new horror series from writer Chip Zdarsky (“Sex Criminals”) and artist Ramón K. Pérez (“Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand,” “Jane”). The comic, starting in September, is named for the town it’s set in, where “nobody dies. That’s not just a promise. It’s a threat.”

Zdarsky said in the press release, “I’m thrilled people are finally going to see ‘Stillwater!’ This idea’s been percolating in my for years now, and it’s been fun working with Ramon to build this tiny, strange world! I’ve always wanted to write a horror comic so I can show the world that I’m not JUST creepy, I can also write creepy! I love getting to explore immortality on a small stage, the idea that you can live forever but just within such a constrained space. It’s been a treat getting to write characters struggling with that terrifying deal.”

Pérez said: “It’s been a joy to step away from the superhero genre and delve into the horror, thriller, and a dash of mystery genre with Chip on Stillwater! I hope readers are as unsettled as I was drawing the book.”

“Stillwater” #1 will be released digitally and in comic book shops on September 16.
