Writer Marguerite Bennett and artists Leila Leiz and Guy Major will delve into a nightmarish world of psychological horror in the new AfterShock OGN Horde coming this October.
In Horde, a young girl moves in with her hoarder mother after the death of her father. But what waits in her mother's crowded house is more than just a lifetime's worth of junk - it's a maze of supernatural terror.
"I think the great evils of the world have always begun with the treatment of people as things," Bennett said in a statement. "Even in this raw nerve of a familial melodrama, this is the crux – all the suffering, all the frenzy and madness and emotional climax all stem from this. Separate from the tragedy of mental illness is the deliberate dehumanization of human beings.
Horde is due out October 16. Here's the full solicitation, along with some interior pages and two covers.

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. 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 tries to free her mother, the house wages war, ensnaring both women within its maze. Brought to hideous and twisted life by a mother's love, the "Horde" is determined to purge Ruby from the collection—or see her join it forever.
Brought to life by Marguerite Bennett (ANIMOSITY, DC’s Bombshells, Batwoman) and Leila Leiz (ALTERS, Nvrlnd), HORDE is a haunting, housebound horror story about the things we let control us.
