SDCC 2016: Titan Reveals Hammer Horror's The Mummy #1

There hasn't been anything interesting done with "The Mummy" in I don't know how long... maybe Abbot and Costello Meets The Mummy? Just kidding. I never watched that and think that Mummy's in general lack a lot of interest. Wait... no I did like Mummy's Always RightYeah, that's the first and only example of a Mummy story that I liked... a kid's book. Oh, here's this thing from Titan to check out. Oh... Peter Milligan huh... yeah, that's a pass. I'm still trying to remember something Milligan's written that was worth reading in the past ten years. From Titan:

Titan are excited to announce THE MUMMY - a brand-new mini-series that reanimates the character, as imagined by legendary Horror studio, Hammer.

Mummy_1_Cover_A John McCreaThis series, written by the legendary Peter Milligan and drawn by Ronilson Freire, was revealed on Friday's San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC). The attached cover was beautifully delivered by John McCrea.

For 2000 years the Sect of Anubis have prolonged their life spans through human sacrifice and the enslavement of an Egyptian High Priestess cursed to walk the afterlife for all eternity.  On one night every 30 years the Sect must offer up a human vessel to house the spirit of the priestess Nebetah so that they can kill her and drink her blood, thus granting them immortality.

But this year they have chosen the wrong vessel and she’s not going willingly…

The Mummy #1 kicks off Titan's exciting Hammer comics line which was announced at last year's ComicsPRO. The line will see the publication of brand-new comic stories featuring classic Hammer properties, as well as wholly original Hammer stories, produced by Titan.
