Mother Nature: Jamie Lee Curtis Writing Graphic Novel Based on Directorial Debut Film

Titan Comics has announced that they have teamed up with Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis to publish her first-ever graphic novel titled Mother Nature, which will be based on the Golden Globe-winning actress’ upcoming directorial debut film of the same name. In addition, the cover art and interior art have also been released, giving us our first look at the new graphic novel.

The publishing company is currently planning to launch Curtis’ eco-horror comic book in the fall of this year and is now available for pre-order on Amazon.

“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.”

The Mother Nature graphic novel will be co-written by Curtis and Russell Goldman, with artist Karl Stevens set as its illustrator. It centers around a young girl named Nova Terrell as she goes up against a big oil corporation, that’s responsible for her father’s death.

“In the comic, Nova Terrell who, after witnessing her father die in mysterious circumstances on one of the Cobalt Corporation’s experimental oil extraction projects, has grown up to despise the seemingly benevolent company that the town of Catch Creek, New Mexico, relies on for its jobs and prosperity,” reads the book’s synopsis. “The rebellious Nova wages a campaign of sabotage and vandalism against the oil giant, until one night she accidentally makes a terrifying discovery about the true nature of the Mother Nature project and the long-dormant, vengeful entity it has awakened that threatens to destroy them all.”

The Mother Nature film was first announced in 2020 as part of Curtis’ three-year first-look deal with Blumhouse. The project will be directed by Curtis from a screenplay she co-wrote with Goldman. It will be produced by Blumhouse and Comet Pictures.

Curtis will next be seen in a few upcoming projects such as A24’s sci-fi action film Everything Everywhere All at Once starring opposite Michelle Yeoh, Blumhouse’s Halloween Ends, which will be Curtis’ final movie as Laurie Strode, and Eli Roth’s film adaptation of Borderlands.
