Official Press Release
14 February 2008 – Cryptozoology received a frightening re-imagining in the pages of Alex Grecian & Riley Rossmo’s PROOF and the uninitiated can catch up this May with the series’ very first collection.
“Being new creators with an odd concept is a frightening thing, which may have fueled the horrific things happening in the book,” Grecian said. “However, the reception has been fantastic, from both fan and critics alike. We already have five years of the series plotted out, so we’re very happy to tell that tale and everything that follows.”
PROOF follows Agent Ginger Brown as she’s transferred to the FBI’s top-secret cryptozoological division and immediately thrust into a murder mystery with an urban legend as its primary suspect. PROOF’s mix of horror, mystery and humor has garnered the series a lot of attention from both in and outside the comics industry.
Entertainment Weekly said, “[PROOF] ranges from the nicely fantastical to, when required, the memorably gruesome.”
PROOF VOL. 1: GOATSUCKER TP (ISBN: 978-1-58240-944-3), a 128-page full color trade paperback for $9.99, will be in stores May 7th, 2008.
