Jamie Lee Curtis has written an Eco Horror graphic novel that is coming out this fall. As if that wasn’t cool enough, I spotted something in the press release that I was not aware of. Have a look….

“Titan Comics is thrilled to be publishing Mother Nature (Fall 2022) the terrifying debut eco-horror graphic novel by Hollywood legend Jamie Lee Curtis. Co-written with film-maker Russell Goldman and illustrated by artist Karl Stevens, the book has been adapted from the script for the upcoming Comet Pictures and Blumhouse horror movie Mother Nature, directed by Jamie Lee Curtis.

What? Jamie Lee Curtis has written and directed her own horror movie that will be coming out in the near future? Talk about burying the lead. What’s the graphic novel about you ask?

“Nova Terrell who, after witnessing her father die in mysterious circumstances on one of the Cobalt Corporation’s experimental oil extraction projects, has grown up to despise the seemingly benevolent company that the town of Catch Creek, New Mexico, relies on for its jobs and prosperity. The rebellious Nova wages a campaign of sabotage and vandalism against the oil giant, until one night she accidentally makes a terrifying discovery about the true nature of the “Mother Nature” project and the long-dormant, vengeful entity it has awakened that threatens to destroy them all.”

Jamie Lee and artist Karl Stevens spoke some about the upcoming project.

“I first thought about this story when I was 19 years old,” says Curtis. “I’ve always been aware of the very unbalanced relationship between humans and nature, and even though I was young, I always knew that, inevitably, nature would win.”

“I have long admired and collected Karl’s work, and I’m very excited he suggested expanding the idea to turn it into a graphic novel. The partnership with Titan has now given us a wonderful platform to begin to tell our story,” she adds.

“I was immediately blown away by the depth of the characters, the perfect blend of action and gore, the urgent ecological message, and how all these things would translate beautifully into a graphic novel,” says illustrator Karl Stevens. “It’s a joy and privilege to work with Titan Comics and Blumhouse on this project. I’m producing the best work of my career!”

This sounds pretty intense, I can’t wait to read and see it. No word yet on the film release date that I could find, but the Graphic Novel will be available November 15th 2022 and can be pre-ordered HERE on Amazon.

 

Here is a small sample of the upcoming Mother Nature!
