By now, Jamie Lee Curtis needs no introduction to fans. From being the original “scream queen” in Halloween, and the subsequent sequels in which her character Laurie Strode gave as good as she got. Not to mention comedic turns in films like Trading Places with Eddie Murphy and Dan Akroyd, A Fish Called Wanda with Kevin Kline and one of my favorites, True Lies with Arnold Schwarzenegger. But that was just scratching the surface of her talents. She has since gone into producing and directing films as well as writing best-selling children’s books. Her children’s audio series Letters from Camp is a particularly enjoyable listen. But now Miss Curtis is continuing to branch out.
Coming in the fall of 2022, Titan Comics is bringing Jamie’s first foray into graphic novels with her book entitled Mother Nature. Co-Written by fellow film-maker Russell Goldman and illustrated by artist Karl Stevens, it is an adaptation of a horror film by Comet Pictures and Blumhouse that Curtis is directing. A recent press release from Titan explains the exciting details:
February 28, 2022 – Titan Comics is thrilled to be publishing Mother Nature (Fall 2022) the terrifying debut eco-horror graphic novel by Hollywood legend Jamie Lee Curtis. Co-written with film-maker Russell Goldman and illustrated by artist Karl Stevens, the book has been adapted from the script for the upcoming Comet Pictures and Blumhouse horror movie “Mother Nature,” directed by Jamie Lee Curtis.
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. 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.

I first thought about this story when I was 19 years old. 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.
Working with Karl Stevens
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.

I was immediately blown away by the depth of the characters, the perfect blend of action and gore, the urgent ecological message, and how all these things would translate beautifully into a graphic novel. It’s a joy and privilege to work with Titan Comics and Blumhouse on this project. I’m producing the best work of my career!
We wanted to reach deeper than the big picture doom-and-gloom of climate change narratives to tell a story specific to Four Corners, New Mexico, an amazing part of the world where every major source of energy is mined, and where the climate and resource crises are acutely felt. We wanted to use these themes to shape a story that feels intense, honest and unexpectedly aspirational.
With the pressing need for stories that shift our collective attention towards our devastating climate emergency, Titan Comics is proud to be publishing the eco-horror graphic novel Mother Nature.
The Mother Nature graphic novel (156pp, hardcover, $24.99, 9781787739130) is set for release in stores and on digital devices in Fall 2022. Available to pre-order now on Amazon.
