Writer Marguerite Bennett and artist Leia Leiz will create Horde, an original hardcover graphic novel, for AfterShock.

Horde tells the story of a young woman who discovers strange secrets about her family after her father's death.

“After the death of her father, Ruby Ando tries to reconnect with her estranged and isolated mother, whose hoarder house is a nightmare labyrinth of secrets and dangers," Bennett explained in a statement. "All the love Ruby was never shown, she sees her mother lavish on her treasures and trinkets, the possessions that possess her. But when Ruby desperately to free her mother, the house wages war, ensnaring both women within its maze. Brought to hideous and twisted life by her mother's love, the Horde is determined to purge Ruby from the collection -- or else see her join it forever. Part Hoarders, part Poltergeist, part Child’s Play, Horde is ultimately a story a love, told through what we mean to keep, and what we mean to destroy.” 

Here's the full solicitation for Horde, which is due out in summer 2019.
