‘Violent Messiahs’ returns in September
Official Press Release
ORANGE, CA — 22 May, 2002 — Are you ready for the next chapter in the
VIOLENT MESSIAHS saga? You’d better be — Image Comics‘ macabre thriller is
returning this September with an all-new four-issue miniseries entitled
VIOLENT MESSIAHS: LAMENTING PAIN.
Picking up a month after the events of the first miniseries, VIOLENT
MESSIAHS: LAMENTING PAIN opens with the city in a social meltdown. Street
gangs prowl the night, riots break out constantly, and the mayor is talking
about marshal law. Amidst all of this, Citizen Pain has disappeared from
Rankor Island, and in his absence, a new vigilante is striking, leaving her
victims horribly mutilated with a single word carved into their corpses:
“Scalpel is a latex-dipped femme fatale who is sexually, emotionally and
physically obsessed with Citizen Pain,” explains VIOLENT MESSIAHS writer
Joshua Dysart. “We’ll try our hardest to use the character as an honest
exploration of the world of fixation, fetish, and S&M without disrupting the
traditional pulp narrative of the comic.”
Accompanying Dysart’s suspenseful storytelling once again is artist Tone
Rodriguez, whose wonderfully visceral art brought VIOLENT MESSIAHS so
vividly to life during the first miniseries. Cover artist Travis Smith will
also be returning for VIOLENT MESSIAHS: LAMENTING PAINT, and his stunning
photomontage covers will be featured in rotation with covers by Rodriguez,
as well as a surprise guest artist or two.
VIOLENT MESSIAHS: LAMENTING PAIN is a $2.95 color comic book available for
order in the July issue of PREVIEWS.
