“Things are gonna get ugly”

We are delighted to announce a forthcoming title in our original fiction series: Deadbeats written by Chris Lackey and Chad Fifer and illustrated by I.N.J. Culbard.

This autumn, Lackey, Fifer and Culbard will be transporting you to 1920s Chicago and a world of jazz, jalopies and tentacles in this creepy adventure like no other. Wait a minute, ‘tentacles’? That’s right – Deadbeats pays homage to the American master of  “weird fiction”, H. P. Lovecraft. If you know anything about the authors, you’ll see that a Lovecraftian obsession runs deep within them.

Chris and Chad are dulcet toned denizens of the interwebs (ahem! and California and Yorkshire) who host the extraordinarily popular, HP Lovecraft Literary Podcast. Both are massive fans of Lovecraftian stories, movies and comics and this is reflected in the podcast, where they discuss a specific H.P. Lovecraft story each week – “what it’s about, how it reads, why it may have been written and what other works of art it has influenced”.

I.N.J Culbard is known to many as the award-winning graphic novelist who adapted Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness into critically acclaimed graphic novel. If you already know Culbard’s work then you’ll no doubt be looking forward to his adaptation of The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, out from SelfMadeHero in May.

Anyway, enough stalling… go and have look at the preview!

(Come back soon!)
