    BOOK OF EVIL

    The Visionary Serialized Horror Story by Renowned Creators Scott Snyder and Jock begins October 4th from Comixology Originals and Best Jackett Press

    September 26, 2022—New York, NY— Scott Snyder and Jock — the creative team of the New York Times bestselling blockbuster The Batman Who Laughs and Batman: Black Mirror — reunite for Book of Evil, a visionary serialized horror story blending prose and multiple styles of illustration. Book of Evil is the next title to be released as part of the eight-book deal with Comixology Originals and Best Jackett Press. In time for the scariest month of the year, issue #1 will be available beginning October 4, 2022 from Amazon’s Comixology Originals exclusive digital content line.

    Told and presented in an innovative format, Book of Evil tells the story of four young friends growing up in a strange near future where over 90 percent of the population are born as psychopaths. Despite the danger, the four set off together on a journey that will take them down the roads and rivers of this transformed America in the hope of finding a place where goodness still lives.

    Imagine a world where nearly every baby born is a future psychopath. There’s no answer as to why the change is happening. Is this human evolution? Devolution? A virus? Can it be cured? Regardless, just like that, the new normal is psychopathy.

    Homer is a curious, quiet, and determined 12-year-old boy—and an artist. The story of Book of Evil unfolds in first person narration from Homer’s point of view, featuring his journal entries, alongside his illustrations from his journey—as well as excerpts of a cartoon strip called “The Book of Evil.” This popular cartoon featured an everyman named Everett who time traveled, met heroic figures of the past, and murdered them in hyper-violent ways. Was the cartoonist telling a story to entertain? Or was he leaving clues in “The Book of Evil” for those, like Homer and his friends, looking to change the world?

    “This is a project Scott and I have been talking about for years and I’m thrilled to see our first issue debut with Comixology,” says Jock. “We always talked about presenting Book of Evil in a truly unique way, with illustrations and design bolstering Scott’s incredibly evocative writing. Joined by the brilliant Emma Price on design, we hope it gives readers an engrossing experience, unlike anything we’ve made before!”

    Book of Evil is ambitious storytelling, featuring a unique combination of prose written by Scott Snyder and illustration by Jock, two of the most popular creators working in comics today.
