‘The Hunger and the Dusk: Book Two’ #1 announced

‘The Hunger and the Dusk’ will return July 2024.

Press Release

IDW has revealed The Hunger and the Dusk: Book Two #1 is set to debut July 10th. With the Book One collected edition due out June 11th, fans won’t have to wait long for the series to continue on its epic journey. Written by G. Willow Wilson with art by Chris Wildgoose, the six-issue follow up has got the creative team is raising the stakes yet again to grip readers with even more action, drama, and romance in a compelling and imaginative world.

With the human-orc alliance falling apart and The Last Men Standing in desperate need of a healer, the ruthless Vangol and rogue orc dynasties stoke the flames of war and put everything – and everyone – at risk. It’s a series I’ve said is “the best fantasy comic around.”

“We’re thrilled by the enthusiastic response to BOOK ONE and we can’t wait for readers to find out what happens in the next arc of this journey,” stated Wilson. “There are some epic battles coming, along with what I hope will be some very satisfying reunions between certain characters. The war for survival teaches you who your real friends and allies are, and in THE HUNGER AND THE DUSK our heroes find those friends in unexpected places.”

Wildgoose said the team is truly going all-out for this tale. “I’m really excited to pull our readers back into our world. I think with BOOK ONE I used the John Hammond line of ‘we’ve spared no expense’ when it came to our set of hot orcs and head chopping. I’d use that line again but with even more confidence.” The artist added, “We’ll be seeing our cast of orcs and men really put to the test as they try to come to grips with the Vangol savagely tearing through the land and their relationships, despite their best efforts. Along with some new characters waiting in the wings I think the readers of BOOK ONE are really going to love it.”
