Dynamite Entertainment has announced the upcoming launch of Sirens Gate, a new fully-painted creator-0wned series from acclaimed artist Shannon Maer.
Described as an urban fantasy, Sirens Gate follows “Tara, an aspiring writer. She’s never thought of herself as anyone special, but all that is about to change. When a mysterious young man extends an unexpected invitation, Tara is awed at the opportunity to meet with her literary idol, Lady Rose. This unique encounter sparks a series of events, forever thrusting her into a world where vampires, werewolves and all manner of supernatural beings become her new normal. What Tara once assumed to be nothing more than the imagined pages of dark fiction, slowly begins to unravel itself as the true reality.”
“Shannon has poured his heart and soul into this project and I believe that is reflected here,” said editor Becky Fuller. “This has become much more than a passion project for us, as it is a story that has been years in the making. We hope you enjoy reading about Tara as much as we’ve enjoyed telling her story!”
“We’ve been incredibly fortunate to work with Shannon for a few years. His covers are magic, and help draw in an audience to some of our best books,” added Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. “Shannon helped bring more readers to our critically acclaimed Vampirella series by Christopher Priest. When he approached us about Sirens Gate, and I spoke with the team, everyone was excited. I’m honored that Shannon approached us, and we are working with him on his first creator-owned book where he is fulling painting the interiors to the series, and fans’ jaws will drop when they see the book.”
