Jeff Lemire & Andrea Sorrentino’s TENEMENT #1 Is Unsettling

TENEMENT #1 hits your local comic book shop on June 21 from Image Comics. The book is written by Jeff Lemire, with art by Andrea Sorrentino, and Dave Stewart drops the colors. Image Comics describes the series as Dario Argento’s Inferno meets Rosemary’s Baby in a claustrophobic tale of terror, perfect for fans of atmospheric horror. The story follows seven residents in a building and the dark secrets that bind them together…beginning with a death that feels much more sinister than natural.

TENEMENT #1 is a slow burn that’s very unsettling and will have you at the edge of your seat. Sorrentino’s photo-realistic style and clean panel layouts create a bleakness waiting to be corrupted by Lemire’s story. In addition, Stewart’s color palette triggers haunting memories of watching horror films as a kid. The first issue leaves you wanting more which is always a good feeling.
