Doesn’t seem like to long ago that Anne Rice was on top of the horror world alongside Stephen King, but thankfully there has been a resurgence of great writing from the horror icon in recent years, and now IDW Publishing is looking to expand on it with “THE SERVANT OF BONES”.

“Anne Rice, among the most iconic creators in horror, brings one of her richest stories to IDW in this six-part tale of murder, demonic revenge, and the redemptive power of faith. When a beautiful young woman is brutally slain in the streets of New York City, the demon Azriel sets out to discover who killed her, only to find a far more sinister plot that could end the world. Once a human in ancient Babylon, Azriel is a spirit of rage and terror that gradually rediscovers his humanity through holy vengeance and spiritual love.”
