This Halloween, You’re Invited To “Hellcity”

Official Press Release


This October, just in time for Halloween, Gigantic Graphic Novels will
release Hellcity, the first graphic novel by award winning screenwriter
Macon Blair and hot up and coming artist Joe Flood.


“Macon and I go way back,” explains Rick Spears Publisher of Gigantic
Graphic Novels, “He knows where the bodies are buried…I’m not kidding.
He help me bury them.” You may recognize Macon Blair as the anti-hero
form Spears’ own series, Teenagers From Mars. “Yeah, Rick really screwed
me up with the whole Teenagers from Mars thing because he took my name
and likeness but then made me way cooler and way better looking in his
book. Now people meet me and they’re all disappointed, like ‘You’re just
some bum, you never fought censorship, you can’t even draw.’ Thanks a
million, Spears.” states Blair.


“I’m always bugging Macon to show me what he’s working in and one day he
pulls out Hellcity,” says Spears. “It was this huge crazy, hilarious,
monster of a script and just the kind of thing I’m looking for, for
Gigantic.” With a script in hand an artist still had to be found. Blair
explains, “We broke Hellcity into 3, 100+ pages and we need to find an
insane artist that could pull off such a massive project. That’s when
Rick introduced me to Flood.” “I had had my eye on Joe Flood for a while
too, explains Spears. “He’s one of the recent crop of fantastic artists
coming out of SVA (School of Visual Arts) here in NYC.” “To be honest I
had my doubts when Rick and Macon first approached me”, states Flood,
“But then I read the script was floored and I just knew I had to do this.”


So what is Hellcity? It’s Lurid pulp fiction straight from the mean
streets of Hell’s capital ‘burg! Demonic femme fatales and damned
detectives! Shadowy schemers and tormented dreamers! Blackmail, betrayal
and hot-blooded murder…it’s a powder keg town, baby, and one bad
secret’s gonna light the fuse! Welcome to Hellcity an edgy twist on the
pulp fiction genre, mixing classic noir elements with demonic horror
into a unique new dark comedy that will appeal to fans of Sin City and
Hellblazer.
