LOS ANGELES 09/01/2022 — Today Skybound revealed a first look at Skybound Presents Afterschool #3, the latest issue of the new teen horror anthology miniseries that takes the familiar cautionary tales we’ve all learned in our youths and flips them on their heads. Afterschool #3 will arrive in comic book shops September 28, 2022.
In this issue, writer Jill Blotevogel (Scream: The TV Series, Shining Vale) teams up with artists Lisa Sterle (Witchblood) and Marley Zarcone (Shade the Changing Girl), colorist Fabiana Mascolo (Firefly), and letterer Pat Brosseau (Manifest Destiny) to present a standalone horror story about a different kind of sibling bonding. Afterschool #3 also features a striking cover by Veronica Fish (Archie, Sabrina the Teenage Witch).
An annoying younger sister doesn’t begin to explain Leda’s situation. Living with Izzy means perpetual chaos—meltdowns, pranks, and zero privacy. But when a killer breaks into their home, Izzy might just be their best defense.
The team behind this Afterschool special joins the impressive roster of acclaimed writers and superstar artists from comics, television and beyond working on the miniseries, including Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead (Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight) and Greg Hinkle (Radio Spaceman); Kate Herron (Marvel Studios’ Loki, Sex Education) & Briony Redman (the BAFTA Rocliffe-winning Pont Brec) alongside Leila Leiz (M.O.M.: Mother of Madness, Horde); and Leon Hendrix III (Two Sentence Horror Stories, Mayor of Kingstown) with Eric Zawadzki (Heart Attack, House of El). Each standalone Afterschool special features a unique creative team to give each issue a distinct horrifying feel, with its own relatable characters and truly chilling lessons.
Skybound Presents Afterschool #3 (JUN220317) will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, September 28, 2022.
