DC Preview: The Conjuring: The Lover #1

‘The Conjuring: The Lover’ #1 is out June 4th in comic book shops.

This dark and haunting mystery is co-written by Daniel Johnson-McGoldrick (screenwriter, The Conjuring 2, Orphan) and Rex Ogle. The prelude introduces college student Jessica, a college freshman returning to campus after winter break, bringing with her the anxieties of last semester’s poor grades, the awkwardness of facing a boy she wishes she’d never slept with, and an undeniably unnerving feeling of being watched.

Jessica soon comes to realize that something evil has made her its target, and it will not rest until it has her in its unholy grip. But why did this sinister presence set its sights on a seemingly normal college freshman?

“It’s something that is scary, something that is good fun and something that kind of leaves you really kind of crawling underneath your skin,” said co-writer Rex Ogle in an exclusive interview for SyFy.com.
THE CONJURING: THE LOVER will also feature backup stories that further explore the mysteries of the dreaded artifact room of Ed and Lorraine Warren from The Conjuring Universe. Issue #1 contains a bloodcurdling story exploring the frightening origin of one of the items from the Warrens’ haunted artifact room, written by comics superstar and DARK NIGHTS: DEATH METAL mastermind Scott Snyder, with art by Denys Cowan (HARDWARE, THE QUESTION: THE DEATHS OF VIC SAGE).
