Sons of the Devil Demands Followers


Having ties to a cult is never easy. You're either slavishly devoted to it, willing to sacrifice everything else to remain part of it. Or you're leading it, in which case there are grand expectations heaved upon you to continue to lead and be righteous. Some people don't have a choice that they're tied to a cult, as in Sons of the Devil from Image Comics, written by Brian Buccellato and illustrated by Toni Infante.

Sons of the Devil is a dark look at a blue collar 25-year-old orphan who learns he is the son of a cult leader. It’s a grounded take on cults that balances the real world with the supernatural. It’s gritty, character-driven, and tonally lays somewhere between Southern Bastards and Nailbiter.

Sons of the Devil #1 hits stores on May 27. Cover A (Infante) can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAR150481. Cover B (Francis Manapul) can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAR150482. Cover C (Paolo Rivera) can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAR150483.

SONS OF THE DEVIL SUMMONS FOLLOWERS
Buccellato and Infante reveal early artwork for the eagerly-anticipated new series
SONS OF THE DEVIL follows one man's discovery of familial ties to a cult. Announced at Image Expo by creators Brian Buccellato (Detective Comics, Injustice) and artist Toni Infante, SONS OF THE DEVIL launches on May 27. Image Comics is pleased to reveal early artwork (not for the faint of heart) for the chilling new series.

SONS OF THE DEVIL is a dark look at a blue collar 25-year-old orphan who learns he is the son of a cult leader. Akin to True Detective and The Following, SONS OF THE DEVIL is an exploration into the dark side of human psychology. It’s a grounded take on cults that balances the real world with the supernatural. It’s gritty, character-driven, and tonally lays somewhere between SOUTHERN BASTARDS and NAILBITER. Watch the trailer for the new series here.

SONS OF THE DEVIL #1 hits stores on May 27. Cover A (Infante) can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAR150481. Cover B (Francis Manapul) can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAR150482.
