Boom! Studios has announced a November #0 launch for Salem, a five-issue mini-series from screenwriters Chris Morgan and Kevin Walsh.

Salem tells the tale of Elias Hooke, a renegade warrior-priest who battles both sadistic church torturers and hell-spawned minions on an all-consuming quest to destroy a real demon that haunts the darkness and preys on humanity.

Morgan's film credits include Cellular and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. He also wrote the film adaptation of Mark Millar's Wanted and the fourth installment of The Fast and the Furious.

Walsh co-wrote the feature The Rally with Morgan. He has written and produced content for National Lampoon, Mondo Media, Evil Genius Entertainment and The Naked Apes comedy troupe. He has served as a senior development consultant for DreamWorks, Paramount Vantage, Mandalay and Scott Free.

"I love stories, all kinds of stories, but there are certain kinds of stories I can't tell in the film medium right now," Morgan said. "What comics offers me is a chance to tell a story I would not otherwise be able to tell.

"I can create a less traditional lead character. I can do story twists that the powers that be in Hollywood would never allow. And I have an unlimited budget when it comes to the visual storytelling. With the freedom that the comics medium affords me, I will be able explore ideas that I hope will take my audience by surprise."

Salem's art will be by Mike Hawthorne.
