As you can see, there is a ton of detail that goes into each print.  By adding a plethora of geometric shapes of various sizes he manages to transform something we’ve all seen for years into something completely foreign and compelling.

Author Richard Kadrey Is Back With Another Sandman Slim Book: “The Getaway God”

New York Times best-selling author, Richard Kadrey is a master at urban fantasy and his first Sandman Slim book is on Barnes and Nobel’s list of “Best Paranormal Fantasy books of the last decade.

Screen Shot 2014-08-28 at 10.01.37 PM

Author Richard Kadrey

Since 2009, Kadrey has been writing about the exploits of James “Sandman Slim” Stark.  Sandman Slim is NOT your average protagonist.  How so you ask?  Well, he spent eleven long years in Hell, (Yes, the actual “Bad place) as a hit man against demons before finally escaping. He is half-human, half-angel nephilim with a bad rep and a worse attitude.

9780062094629

Kadrey’s  latest book, “The Getaway God” is the sixth in the Sandman Slim series and as usual, things aren’t looking up for Stark.  After temporarily playing Lucifer, Stark has made a few enemies.  None are as fearsome as the vindictive Angra Om Ya (the Older Gods.)  But  their imminent invasion is only one of Stark’s problems right now.  Los Angeles is descending into chaos, and a new evil, St Nick, is stalking the city.  (NO, he doesn’t have a white beard and a red suit.)

No ordinary killer, St. Nick takes Slim deep into a conspiracy that stretches from Earth to Heaven and Hell.  He’s also the only person alive who MAY know how to keep the world from going extinct.  The trouble is, he’s also Stark’s worst enemy, the only man in existence that Stark would enjoy killing TWICE!

As usual, this one is packed with gory violence, swearing and situations that would keep a young reader huddled under their covers praying for daylight.  Fans of the series will be thoroughly pleased to see that Stark is back to his snarky self but can he stop St. Nick and save the earth?.  You can order the book HERE and find out.

IDW Asks….”What Comes After The Bigger Bang?”

We were instantly drawn to the art of The Bigger Bang.  Once we read more about it, we wanted to see and read more!  Here is what IDW had to say about this upcoming series.

In one explosive moment our universe was born—and with another it will be destroyed! This winter, writer D.J. Kirkbride (Amelia Cole) and illustrator Vassilis Gogtzilas (Adventures of Augusta Wind) team up for THE BIGGER BANG, a four-issue mini-series exploring the depths of humanity through the warped lens of an ever-expanding multiverse. This action-packed space fantasy defies the laws of science and the comforts of belief!
TBB_issue1“My artistic pal Vassillis approached me about doing a comic with some kind of outer space superhero, and that pretty quickly became THE BIGGER BANG,” says writer Kirkbride. “It’s a comic about forging one’s own destiny despite circumstances of birth or the past… starring a space god in orange tights, a three-eyed green warrior lady, and a Cthulhu in a flying space castle.”

TBB_issue11Created by an inexplicable universe-killing event, the being called Cosmos traverses the stars, seeking to help those he can in order to atone for the sins of his birth. Often mistaken for a harbinger, Cosmos soars the intergalactic space ways alone… but will soon find himself up against an alien tyrant on his quest for acceptance.
TBB_issue12
Series editor Justin Eisinger, most commonly found overseeing IDW’s expansive line of books and graphic novels, described his experience as such: “THE BIGGER BANG is a story with heart and vision. The off-kilter pairing of Kirkbride’s quirky writing and Gogtzilas’ expressive, kinetic artwork work in perfect disharmony to bring this impossible story to improbable life. We sure hope you have as much fun reading BIGGER BANG as we’re having making it.”

The Bigger Bang will light up comic shops beginning this November. Don’t miss out on this intergalactic epic!

KILL ME THREE TIMES is a darkly comedic thriller from rising star director Kriv Stenders (Red Dog).
