In February 2023, IDW Publishing is releasing issue #1 of its IDW
Original Series, Breath of Shadows, a five-issue miniseries from Bram
Stoker Award–Nominated Comic Book Creators Rich Douek and Alex Cormack
that melds the horror genre with drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, resulting
in an edge-of-your-seat, dark-and-twisted, must-read!


It’s 1968. On the fast track to becoming one of his era’s most
iconic rock stars, Jimmy Meadows should be basking in the glow of newly
acquired wealth and fame. Instead, crushed by the weight of a
debilitating heroin addiction, Jimmy is on the verge of losing
everything—until an old friend tips him off to an unorthodox treatment
method hidden in the depths of the South American jungle. With
fair-weather friends, local opportunists, and industry sycophants in
tow, Jimmy sets off in search of what he’s sure will be a miracle
cure. But as the excursion veers off course and the realities of their
environment begin to bleed together with Jimmy’s paranoia and
drug-induced hallucinations, the team quickly descends into a nightmare
of bloody chaos populated by unspeakable horrors that surpass even the
most brutal drug trip.
