Coming Soon - The Nightmare Factory!

It’s a bit hard to believe, but our third graphic novel, The Nightmare Factory, releases next week! We’ll be pumping this book all throughout October (up until Halloween, naturally), and we kick things off with an EXCLUSIVE premiere this evening and through tomorrow on the main Comics page over at IGN.COM! I am quite pumped about this book, both as a company hack and a comics fan. Check out the art and let us know what you think! More goodies and reviews to follow later this week…

Also, those fine folks over at BLOODY-DISGUSTING.COM posted a review of the 28 Weeks Later DVD, on which you can find animated versions of two of the stories from 28 Days Later: The Aftermath! I’m a big fan of these animatic animations that we’ve produced for our books… you may even see one for The Nightmare Factory!

From the BLOODY DISGUSTING review:
“The most intriguing features are two bonus short films. Essentially a Anamatic interpretations of the Fox Atomic’s 28 DAYS LATER Graphic Novels, the first, STAGE 1: DEVELOPMENT, is a 7-minute look at the history of the creation of the rage virus by Cambridge University scientists. The second, STAGE 3: DECIMATION is a much shorter look at a vigilante solider fighting a one-man war against the infected on the streets of London. The artwork, in a sometimes slick, sometimes sketched, comic book style along with the voice over narration provides for a very cool supplement and easily the best feature this DVD has to offer—aside from the film of course. These final two extras typify what great bonus materials should be—an extension of the film that enhances the viewing experience. I really hope we see more of this type of thing on future releases.”

Anyone reading the Oni book "Mulptile Warheads"? I love it!
