New Comic Miniseries The Fly: Outbreak Buzzes Into Life March 2015

If you are a fan of David Cronenberg’s original The Fly, IDW Publishing are releasing a sequel in comic form. The Fly: Outbreak continues the story from the failed teleportation experiment that turned a scientist into a strange amalgamation of man and fly. The comic follows the travails of his almost-human son as he tries to cure the mutated genes. In typical fashion, a breakthrough ends up turning into a breakout which turns anyone exposed into a monster themselves.

Written by Brandon Seifert (Hellraiser, Witch Doctor) with painted interior and cover art by menton3 (Silent Hill, Monocyte), the first issue will be available with variant covers by Jason Edmiston and Lukas Ketner.

“To be totally honest, The Fly is one of the most disturbing things I’ve ever seen! It was really resonant for its time. And in the last 20 years or so, with all the advances in Genetically Modified Organisms, the film has taken on a lot of meaning it didn’t originally have. It’s really exciting to explore those elements in this miniseries — and great to have an amazing, super-distinctive artist like menton3 on the visuals!” – Brandon Seifert
