First look at Titan Comics’ new Hammer adaptation: ‘The Mummy’

by Phil Wheat

Titan Comics have revealed new artwork for The Mummy #1, a brand-new mini-series that reanimates the character, as imagined by legendary Horror studio, Hammer. This series is written by the comics scribe Peter Milligan (Justice League: Dark) and illustrated beautifully by Ronilson Freire (The Green Hornet).

For 2000 years the Sect of Anubis have prolonged their life spans through human sacrifice and the enslavement of an Egyptian High Priestess cursed to walk the afterlife for all eternity. On one night every 30 years the Sect must offer up a human vessel to house the spirit of the priestess Nebetah so that they can kill her and drink her blood, thus granting them immortality. But this year they have chosen the wrong vessel and she’s not going willingly…

This new book kicks off Titan’s exciting Hammer comics line which will see the publication of brand-new comic stories featuring classic Hammer properties, as well as wholly original Hammer stories, produced by Titan.

The Mummy #1 debuts with a range of variant covers including covers by; John McCrea (Hulk), Tom Mandrake & M.D. Penman, Ronilson Freire, Felix Ruiz (Wolverine MAX), Jeff Zornow (Grimm Fairy Tales), and a blank sketch variant! Check out the covers – and some interior art – below:
