Weavers #1 (Preview)

Publisher BOOM! Studios is about to give their reader the heebie jeebies when the first issue for Weavers hits the shelves next week. This sounds interesting to me because I love the blending of genres and this is a doozy.. It’s a story or organised crime in the vain of The Sopranos mixed with the supernatural horror that you’d find in a 1950s B Horror movie.

Original Press Release:

What’s to Love: From The Godfather to The Sopranos, organized crime stories have always fascinated us. Weavers is a macabre story with a twist on the familiar drama of dons, capos, and made men, mixing in supernatural elements that only writer Simon Spurrier (The Spire, Cry Havoc) can think up. It’s perfect for fans of Day Men or Scalped!

What It Is: Sid, a young man with nothing going for himself, becomes an unlikely new addition to The Weavers, a brutal, East Coast crime family whose members are bound to loyalty thanks to the supernatural spider inside each one of them, granting them powerful-and often grotesque-abilities. Once he realizes what he’s capable of, Sid sets out to pursue his own secret agenda, counter to the group’s objectives. But he doesn’t have much time-the longer the spider is inside him, the more loyal he becomes to The Weavers…

The artwork, by Dylan Burnett has a retro noir feel to it, and I’m sure writer Simon Spurrier will continue to impress as he did with The Spire.
