Silent Devil, a Los Angeles based production company, is proud to
announce the 2-part graphic novel series Astronaut Dad. Written by
Karma Incorporated creator David Hopkins with art by Horrorwood’s
Brent Schoonover, Astronaut Dad follows three NASA families in
Houston, Texas during the boom years of the space race.
“This is one project I couldn’t turn down,” says Silent Devil
co-founder Christian Beranek. “David Hopkins has done great work with
SD before on Antigone and Brent’s artwork is amazing. This series
represents the future of the medium, being that original graphic
novels are quickly becoming a widely embraced form of mass
“I write about families in crisis,” says co-creator David Hopkins.
“Astronaut Dad is my most personal work and, by far, the most
challenging. It’s gone through numerous
re-writes. But now, I look at the script, I’m confident readers will
get something truly honest and unique.”
“Although our new focus is on film, tv and other media, Silent Devil was
always known in the past as a publisher,” says co-founder Adam
Beranek. “Astronaut Dad is a book we believe in and we’re happy to be
on board — as they say, the engines are prepped and ready to launch!”
Astronaut Dad Volume 1 is set for a late October Release. Volume 2
will follow in Summer 2008.
