Official Press Release
Scottsdale, AZ – He returned to comics in mad form in
Returns #1, now Evil Ernie – that anti-authoritative teenage character we
can’t seem to resist – gets thrown back into a NEW, classic untold tale
April 2002 in the Untold Tales of Evil Ernie Vol. II #1: Relentless.
Since the fans demanded it, fan favorite writer and Chaos! founder
returns to tell an all-new, wicked tale of Evil Ernie, the Undead
Evil Ernie was a long running comic book series about an abused teen who
returned from the dead and sought revenge on the living. It was also the
top selling horror anti-hero for over eight years, selling millions of
copies and millions more in merchandise. Evil Ernie’s fans were legion
because there was no other comic quite like it; anti-social, destructive,
and politically incorrect.
The story takes place at Coaster Carnival, a premiere amusement park in
Pittsburgh, PA and it is far, far away from the burgeoning
“psycho-plague” spreading on the East Coast. Alan McHenry, head of
Security at Coaster Carnival, is retiring, celebrating his last day on
the job when all Hell breaks loose. First, he has to locate a thieving
runaway kid. Then the impossible occurs as the Undead invade, led by Evil Ernie, the most
anti-authoritative character in comics history. How do the good guys get
out of this one alive or do they? It’s All the OVER-THE-TOP savage action
you’ve come to expect from Evil Ernie – AND MORE! The comic itself
contains over 35 pages of story & art.
Evil Ernie: Relentless #1 is being penciled by Jerry Beck (ICP, Evil
Ernie: Returns #1). It is 48 black and white pages and retails for $4.99.
It’s available in a premium cover by Greg Capullo (The Creech, Spawn) and
an ultra-violent super premium covered edition limited to only 500
copies. The comic makes way into comic shops on April 10, 2002.
