Stan Silas’ “Norman” makes the jump from graphic novels to comics, when the horror/comedy star debuts in a new, monthly series from Titan Comics.
Debuting in June 2016 with a variant cover by “Lenore” creator Roman Dirge, the comic will pick up where the graphic novels left off, following the adventures of the eight-year-old title character and his zombified uncle. But where most kids dream of being superheroes, Norman’s imagination finds him emulating his favorite scenes starring his heroes — Hollywood’s famous slashers.
Check out the press release below, along with the first issue’s covers by Silas and Dirge.
