Image rolls out 'Sullivan's Sluggers'
The book will be written by Mark Andrew Smith, the editor of the award-winning Popgun anthology, and illustrated by James Stokoe (Orc Stain).
It tells the tale of a washed-out team of minor league baseball players who discover the town they are invited to play against has a horrifying secret.
"Sullivan's Sluggers is a great blending of sports comics and horror," said Smith.
"It was great to do a story about a baseball team while also at the same time working in the horror genre.
"I think this book will simultaneously resonate with sports and baseball fans as well as horror fans, making it a perfect storm."
Sullivan's Sluggers will be released on August 11.
