DSTLRY, the next-generation publisher redefining creator-owned comic books and collectibles, is thrilled to announce the launch of WHITE BOAT, a new horror series from multiple Eisner-award-winners Scott Snyder and Francesco Francavilla launching this March.
WHITE BOAT revolves around a titular mega-yacht that the super-rich use to traverse the globe—floating islands where your every desire can be fulfilled. And getting invited on board should be a dream come true…that is until the crew traps and transports you to a remote island where secret cults have existed for millennia, working on something called “The Human Project.” Does the White Boat ship you to paradise or sink you into hell on earth? WHITE BOAT reunites Scott Snyder, the visionary writer who redefined comic book dread with Wytches and introduced Batman into a terrifying, cerebral era, with modern noir master Francesco Francavilla for a white-knuckle descent into Lovecraftian maritime madness.
DSTLRY Founding Editor and frequent Snyder collaborator Will Dennis joins as editor. “WHITE BOAT is by far my most ambitious and expansive deep dive into horror yet,” writer Scott Snyder explains. “Francesco and I are using DSTLRY’s oversized format to unearth a sprawling and terrifying mythology that spans oceans and continents.”
“I’m very excited to work with Scott and DSTLRY on a project with this scope,” artist Francesco Francavilla continues. “It’s a rare story that balances claustrophobic psychological terror with global conspiracy. It’s simply epic; we can’t wait for you all to embark on this journey with us.”
DSTLRY’s co-founders Chip Mosher and David Steinberger shared their enthusiasm: “WHITE BOAT is not just a comic series; it’s a landmark in modern horror storytelling. Snyder and Francavilla are the perfect duo to bring this haunting vision to life. Their collaboration underscores DSTLRY’s mission to empower creators to push the boundaries of their craft.”
WHITE BOAT will be available for pre-order and will hit shelves at local comic shops and digitally via www.dstlry.co in March 2024. The series will feature multiple covers, including limited edition variants and special incentives for collectors.
