Last month IDW announced The Hunger and the Dusk, a new epic fantasy series from G. WILLOW WILSON (Ms. Marvel, Wonder Woman, Poison Ivy) and CHRIS WILDGOOSE (Batgirl: Rebirth, Batman: Nightwalker). Debuting in July, Wilson's self-proclaimed "dream project" is a high fantasy tour de force promising heartrending drama, pulse-quickening romance, awe-inspiring world-building, and bloody carnage to satisfy every manner of genre fan!
Plus, on issue #1, there will be a special 1:100 Chiang "Gold" Variant, followed by 1:50 Chiang "Gold" Variants for the remainder of the series.
"The Hunger and the Dusk is such a bold and ambitious book, offering rousing fantasy with elegant depth as humans and orcs try to survive a broken and dying world," Chiang said when asked about the series. "This is sword and sorcery with a modern eye, and I wanted to lean into those special qualities while giving it a striking and memorable design. It's been a real thrill to create these covers and celebrate the brilliance of the stories within."
In addition to Cliff's covers, each issue of The Hunger and the Dusk will be available with multiple variant covers for fans and retailers to enjoy. Each issue's Cover A will feature series artist Chris Wildgoose, while Cover B will spotlight the sensational art of Cliff Chiang. Rotating contributors will grace each Cover C month to month, with InHyuk Lee (Mighty Morphin, The Flash), Nick Robles (The Dreaming: Waking Hours), and Jessica Fong (Poison Ivy) assuming cover art duties for the first three issues, respectively.
Final order cut-off for this series is MONDAY MAY 29, so fans and retailers should get their orders in early—don't sleep on one of the most buzzed-about books of the summer!
