A Decade in the Making
Both creators not only bring their transformative storytelling but also their singular artistic skills, culminating in a project that’s been over a decade in the making. Originating from their 11-page narrative What Blighted Flame Burns in Thee? in DSTLRY's debut one-shot The Devil's Cut, Somna offers a haunting investigation into puritanical repression and concealed desires. This is a monumental series, presented in 48-page perfect bound issues, each a collectible piece unto itself.
The Story Within Somna
Set against the chilling atmosphere of witch hunts in a 1600s English village, Somna chronicles the life of Ingrid, entangled in an oppressive marriage to Roland, the town’s chief witch hunter. When a leading community member is found murdered, Roland’s merciless crusade intensifies. Torn between her quest for truth and a shadowy suitor, Ingrid must navigate a labyrinth of secrets and seduction. Does the specter hold the answers she seeks, or is he the harbinger of her damnation?
Words from the Visionaries
Becky Cloonan shares, “Somna allows us to delve deep into the darkest myths and beliefs that have intrigued us for over a decade. This is not just a new series; it’s the culmination of lifelong obsessions.” Tula Lotay adds, “Somna is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced in the comic realm. This series, audacious in its sensuality and complex themes, is a project Becky and I have been crafting meticulously for years.”
