This first look at BREATH OF SHADOWS #1 features horror, drugs, and rock and roll.

The press release follows:

Media Release — In February 2023, IDW Publishing is releasing issue #1 of its IDW Original Series, Breath of Shadows, a five-issue miniseries from Bram Stoker Award–Nominated Comic Book Creators Rich Douek and Alex Cormack that melds the horror genre with drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, resulting in an edge-of-your-seat, dark-and-twisted, must-read!

BREATH OF SHADOWS SYNOPSIS: 

It’s 1968. On the fast track to becoming one of his era’s most iconic rock stars, Jimmy Meadows should be basking in the glow of newly acquired wealth and fame. Instead, crushed by the weight of a debilitating heroin addiction, Jimmy is on the verge of losing everything—until an old friend tips him off to an unorthodox treatment method hidden in the depths of the South American jungle. With fair-weather friends, local opportunists, and industry sycophants in tow, Jimmy sets off in search of what he’s sure will be a miracle cure. But as the excursion veers off course and the realities of their environment begin to bleed together with Jimmy’s paranoia and drug-induced hallucinations, the team quickly descends into a nightmare of bloody chaos populated by unspeakable horrors that surpass even the most brutal drug trip.
