Devil's Due announces new 'Child's Play' comic

Certain horror franchises have been doing rather well in the comic book market, these days. Army of Darkness, Friday the 13th, a Nightmare on Elm Street, Re-Animator and Darkman have all seen comic-based revivals. Well, next in line is Chucky, the killer doll from the Child’s Play franchise.

Devil’s Due’s Josh Blaylock had this to say:

â??Devilâ??s Dueâ??s infatuation with the horror genre isnâ??t a new one; the breakout cult success of Tim Seeleyâ??s HACK/SLASH sparked more than enough interest to follow up with horror/occult themed LOST SQUAD, BLACK HARVEST, and NIGHTWOLF, as well as a brief revival of the dormant Chaos Comics ghouls. Weâ??re excited as can be to bring Chucky to comics. Coming up with ideas for the character is â??childâ??s playâ??.â?

No news yet on the plot or the creative team, though some sketch art and the cover might imply that Chucky will be facing off against a human-sized doll woman. It’s only a hunch, but there’s a good chance Don Mancini might be involved in some way, considering he wrote all five films

Child’s Play will be released in early 2007
