DESCEND INTO SIMON STÅLENHAG’S APOCALYPTIC SHOWPIECE WITH EXCLUSIVE NEW LOOK INSIDE THE LABYRINTH
Today Image/Skybound unveiled a new exclusive look inside the highly-anticipated narrative art hardcover The Labyrinth from visionary illustrator and author Simon Stålenhag (The Electric State, Tales from the Loop). The tense, dark tale of ruin and vengeance is set against a haunting sci-fi apocalypse filled with the remnants of an otherworldly phenomenon, in a visual story that only Stålenhag could tell.
An eight-wheeled vehicle trundles across a barren landscape of ash and ruined buildings toward a lone bunker deep in the wilderness. Inside the vehicle are three passengers: two scientists—who plan to use the outpost as a home base for the study of world-ending phenomena—and a boy named Charlie.
As the work unfolds, the isolation and claustrophobia of the compound threatens each member of the expedition with madness. Forced to confront their own dark history and the struggles of the haves and have-nots, the members of the expedition find themselves hurtling toward ruin.
The Labyrinth (Diamond Code JUN210136) debuts in deluxe hardcover format at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play on Wednesday, November 3 and everywhere books are sold on Tuesday, November 9.
