Image’s “Heavens Devils” Wins Bram Stoker Award
Official Press Release
BERKELEY, CA — 29 June, 2005 – The acclaimed Image Comics book HEAVEN’S DEVILS has won the
prestigious Bram Stoker Award for Illustrated Narrative. Each year, the Horror Writer’s Association presents
the Bram Stoker Awards for Superior Achievement, named in honor of Bram Stoker, author of the
seminal horror work, Dracula.
“Winning the Stoker was completely unexpected,” said creator/writer Jai Nitz. “I can’t believe
I won. Still, I wouldn’t have won without the efforts of Zach Howard, Sean Murphy, Kevin
Sharpe, and Thompson Knox. Without them, there would be no HEAVEN’S DEVILS.”
Nitz joins a prestigious line of previous winners such as Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman and
Nitz continues, “Also, thanks to Eric Stephenson and Image Comics for believing in HEAVEN’S
DEVILS from the beginning. It was great to be nominated for outstanding comic writing by
the Horror Writers Association, but I still can’t believe I won. This thing is going on my mantle.”
About HEAVEN’S DEVILS: Alan Wells hides from his ugly past but seeks redemption in Mexico.
John Wickliffe belies his corporate status and tries to save the rainforest one tree at a
time. Agent Madison Morgan is suspended by the FBI and sent to do deskwork in the middle of
nowhere Texas for the Office of Homeland Security. A smuggler with a past, an environmentalist
with an agenda, and a loose cannon with a chip on her shoulder come together with the fate
of humanity between them.
HEAVEN’S DEVILS has received many favorable reviews and much praise since its release.
“The end of the story was awesome; it left my mouth wide open.” -Comic World News
“Not too many comics, not to mention movies and TV series, manage to mix genres so smoothly.”
-Ain’t It Cool News
“At a time when most comics seem to be about other comics, it’s refreshing to read a book
that’s interested in race, politics and the environment. Definitely worth a look.”
-Brian K. Vaughan (Y the Last Man, Ex Machina)
“A story set in a world with texture and grit, featuring not one but four characters I want
to know more about.”
-Mark Waid (Kingdom Come)
“A tight adventure, with a wicked premise and strong characters.”
-Brian Azzarello (100 Bullets)
Jai Nitz’ new project is SEASON OF THE WITCH, from Image Comics.
