If you’ve seen The Conjuring The Devil Made Me Do It  now in theatres you’ll recall the sequence where Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) investigate the brutal murder of a woman named Katie (Andrea Andrade). It seems to echo the movie’s main case in which a man claims demonic possession drove him to kill. A new comic miniseries The Conjuring The Lover digs more into that storyline, offering a prequel to the events seen in the film while also helping kick off the new DC Horror imprint.

In fact, The Conjuring The Lover is DC Horror’s first miniseries; it’ll run five issues and the first is out now digitally and in comic book stores. If you’re curious, it doesn’t feel like a hasty Warner Bros. tie-in; it’s co-written by the guy who wrote The Conjuring 2 and The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, along with Rex Ogle (Free Lunch, Death of Wolverine: Life After Logan, Teen Titans). The art is by Garry Brown (Babyteeth) with main cover art by Bill Sienkiewicz, a VHS homage variant cover by Ryan Brown, and a “1-in-25 ‘ratio’ variant cover” by Garry Brown.
