The dark new horror series will launch in the United States this March 2020 from Image Comics
PORTLAND, Ore. 10/09/2019 — First announced at San Diego Comic-Con back in July, bestselling creator Mirka Andolfo (Unnatural) teased her upcoming Image Comics miniseries, Mercy, again for New York Comic Con last week—this time with a sultry video trailer for fans attending the Image Comics panel, “Spine tingling comic book series perfect for Halloween.” The Mercy series will launch in March 2020. Set in the fictional small town of Woodsburgh during the Klondike Gold Rush, Mercy introduces main character Lady Hellaine—an “inhuman” woman—who is always seen with her butler, Mr. Goodwill… The video trailer, a short movie titled A Night Out, produced by Arancia Studio and Grey Ladder with Dimago, features a seductive voice over narrative as the Lady Hellaine hunts for her dinner prey. Mercy explores topics of “otherness,” damnation and redemption, and what it means to be a monster in a horror tale perfect for fans of Penny Dreadful, Crimson Peak, The Alienist, Parasol Protectorate, and Dark Shadows. More exciting details about the goth-inspired, Victorian monster series will be unveiled as the United States release date approaches. After the poignant story of inclusion and self-discovery told in Unnatural, Andolfo presents a darker story that addresses issues far beyond typical genre-related tropes.
