Jamie Lee Curtis Writing an Eco-Horror Graphic Novel

Jamie Lee Curtis has written an eco-horror graphic novel, adapted from a script for the actress’ directorial debut film. The graphic novel Mother Nature will be published by Titan Comics, cowritten with filmmaker Russell Goldman, and illustrated by Karl Stevens. “I first thought about this story when I was 19 years old,” Curtis said in a statement. “I’ve always been aware of the very unbalanced relationship between humans and nature, and even though I was young, I always knew that, inevitably, nature would win. I have long admired and collected Karl’s work, and I’m very excited he suggested expanding the idea to turn it into a graphic novel. The partnership with Titan has now given us a wonderful platform to begin to tell our story.” Mother Nature is available for preorder now and will be published this fall.
