Courtesy of DC Comics, we have a first look at the backup story in The Conjuring: The Lover #2. We here at AIPT liked the first issue, and with the second issue out next week there’s plenty of anticipation. Each backup story explores the tales behind the objects collected in Ed and Lorraine’s dreaded artifact room.
In Issue #2, Tales From the Artifact Room: The Bloody Bride, writer Che Grayson (Pigamo) and artist Juan Ferreyra (Green Arrow), looks at the story behind a wedding dress—and the curse it passes on to new brides. Issue #3, available on Tuesday, August 3, will also feature a backup story from writer Tim Seeley (Nightwing) and artist Kelley Jones (Swamp Thing).
The new series is a prequel to the recently released The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It which is on HBO Max until July 5th.
Check out the preview below.

The Conjuring: The Lover #2
Jessica’s life begins to take a turn for the terrifying as she finds herself experiencing increasingly disturbing events at her college. Most troubling of all, she begins to suspect that the phenomena she’s experiencing could have an unsettling origin-her own psyche.
Plus, Che Grayson and Juan Ferreyra bring you another trip into the Warrens’ haunted artifact room for a double dose of dread!
