The Lost Room Season 2 Comic

This is one of those announcements at San Diego Comic Con that I should’ve mentioned, but alas, faced with a barrage of good news, some things slipped through my net. Well, the writers of The Lost Room (a widely praised TV mini-series) will now have a follow-up in the form of a comic mini-series. Christopher Leone and Laura Harkcom’s We Kill Monsters was one of the surprise hits for me in the last few months (and is now available in TPB!) and The Lost Room is one of those shows I must get around to watching as it’s been recommended to me a few times and now might just be the time before Season 2 hits. Official press release below.

WE KILL MONSTERS writers Laura Harkcom & Christopher Leone announced at the Comic Con edition of “The Totally Rad Show” that “The Lost Room: Season II” will be published by Red 5 Comics next year!

The book is a sequel to their original television mini-series “The Lost Room,” which they co-created, co-wrote and co-executive produced for The SyFy Channel and Lionsgate Television. “The Lost Room” starred Peter Krause, Julianna Margulies and Kevin Pollak. The 6-hour series garnered much critical acclaim, with The New York Times calling it “…a jackpot for a mystery series,” and Entertainment Weekly citing it as “…one of the most creative ideas to hit TV in a while.” The show was nominated for two Emmys and a Writers Guild Award.

Since its debut in 2006, “The Lost Room” has continued to increase in awareness and build an ever-growing fan base.  In September of 2009, Salon.com featured an article about the show’s rising profile, raving, “Forget the latest from J.J. Abrams… ‘The Lost Room’ is a cult hit waiting to happen.”  Ain’t It Cool News said this weekend, “The Lost Room miniseries was, I thought, up there with ‘Battlestar Galactica’ as one of the best Sci-Fi Channel originals ever produced.”
The comic book picks up one year after the events of the miniseries. The story of the Key continues as it falls into the hands of a new protagonist: a hardened criminal who was finally framed for the one crime he didn’t commit.  The new Motel Man escapes prison looking for revenge, only to find himself in a new cell: Room 10.

“The Lost Room: Season II” is a 4-issue limited series that will publish monthly.  A search is currently underway for artists.
