This July, AWA Studios are set to release new horror series THE RIBBON QUEEN from longtime collaborators Garth Ennis and Jacen Burrows.

Here’s the official blurb:

Set in the wake of summer 2020’s Black Lives Matter protests, THE RIBBON QUEEN follows NYPD detective Amy Sun. Detective Sun is working a grisly murder case when she discovers a unit within the department that is rotten to the core… and something even more terrifying that hunts them. Each time Amy narrows in on the corrupt cops around her, she discovers them literally unraveled and torn to ribbons.

Detective Sun is about to come face to face with an ancient and monstrous force that has been turned loose on the world of abusive men. The Ribbon Queen is here for vengeance and she’s got ten thousand years’ worth of scores to settle.

Speaking about the series, Ennis said “This one goes all the way back to an idea I had when I was just a kid, and I’ve been waiting a long time to tell the story of The Ribbon Queen. It was a question of refining the themes and creating the appropriate characters and setting for the narrative- and, of course, finding the right artist. I worked with Jacen on Wormwood, Crossed, and The Punisher, so I know he’s got a bit of a nose for the nasty: he really is the perfect collaborator for this dark and bloody tale.”

The first issue of the 8-part series goes on sale on the 26th of July 2023, and you can feast your eyes on some unlettered preview artwork below:
