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 teenaged psychopath!
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.
