Prepare to scream “HOLY ####!” very loudly. On the heels of the sketch art we brought you earlier, we have now got the first 5 pages of Robert Kirkman’s (“THE WALKING DEAD”, “MARVEL ZOMBIES”) “DEMONIC”, and does it look amazing! Read on for the preview before the issue hits stands tomorrow!
“From the creative minds of Image partners Robert Kirkman & Marc Silvestri! The demon is in his head. The demon makes him strong. The demon gets angry when he doesn’t kill. Scott Graves is possessed and he will do anything the demon asks as long as it promises not to make him kill his wife and daughter. Scott stalks in the night as Demonic, a vigilante known for savagely slaughtering the wicked. He asks himself, how long can he continue living this way and what if the demon isn’t real?
Pilot Season: Demonic #1 centers on the story of Scott Graves and his inner demon—only his demon manifests itself in his real life. Providing him strength, the demon is only satiated when Scott kills. In a conflicted Faustian bargain, Scott will continue to kill as long as the demon promises not to make him kill his wife and daughter. Stalking the night as Demonic, a vigilante known for savagely slaughtering the wicked, Scott must asks himself how long he can continue living this way and if the demon is in fact real. Pilot Season: Demonic #1 features a cover by co-creator Silvestri.”
After being delayed not once but TWICE this month, Top Cow looks to release the next installment of it’s ubber popular “PILOT SEASON” series by Robert Kirkman (“WALKING DEAD”, “MARVEL ZOMBIES”) with “DEMONIC”. I got a chance to preview this one a little while back, and I cannot recommend it enough. If you liked Kirkman’s previous entries into this series, be sure to pick this one up as it looks to give “MURDERER” a big time run for its money.
