Lore Creator Aaron Mahnke Delivers New Chills with Wellington Comic Book Series

IDW Publishing Welcomes Delilah S. Dawson and Piotr Kowalski to Bring Mahnke’s Monster-Hunting Adventurer to Life

SAN DIEGO, CA (July 19, 2019) – From the mind of Aaron Mahnke, creator of the award-winning Lore podcast, comes Wellington, a five-issue comic book series delving even deeper into Lore’s dark side of history!

Written by New York Times bestselling author Delilah S. Dawson (Star Wars) with Aaron Mahnke, featuring artwork by Piotr Kowalski (The Dark Tower) and colors by Brad Simpson (The Witcher), this fear-fraught tale – debuting December 2019 – introduces the creature-hunting Duke of Wellington, investigator of the most thrilling mysteries and monsters found on the smash hit podcast!

“History and folklore are deep wells, and they are honestly a fiction writer’s dream come true,” says Mahnke. “With an amazing cast of characters just waiting to be called upon, and centuries of belief in the supernatural setting the stage, I’m excited to share these powerful stories in a brand-new way!”

“As a huge fan of the pop culture phenomenon that is Lore, I jumped at the chance to work with Aaron Mahnke and the Wellington team to merge history with dark supernatural adventures,” says Dawson. “Add in the atmospheric art by Piotr and Brad, and you’re going to see the spirit of Lore resurrected in an entirely new way. This is a book you’re going to want!”

“The most interesting characters in comics are those who battle with their own demons whilst trying to fix the world however they can,” says Kowalski. “The Duke of Wellington certainly has all the qualities of a perfect horror tale hero. He is driven, experienced, and tormented by nightmares. He is a hunter, avenger, and tireless seeker of the ultimate truth. And, ultimately, the strength of this character guarantees a captivating and entertaining comic book.”

“Aaron Mahnke’s Lore is one of my favorite podcasts and I’m beyond thrilled to be working with him and the amazing team of Delilah Dawson, Piotr Kowalski, and Brad Simpson to add a new twist to some of the stories from the show,” says editor Chase Marotz. “Expect mystery, mayhem, and an awesome monster or two!”
