Alan Robert has built quite the name for himself over the past few years as a big name in the horror comics industry. His hit title “Crawl To Me” is currently being made into a film, and his latest title, “Killogy”, is set to come out just in time for Halloween.
This is an insanely wacky series featuring Frank Vincent of The Sopranos, Marky Ramone of The Ramones, and Brea Frant of Dexter, as they investigate a tripple homicide.
Official press release from IDW:
San Diego, CA (July 15, 2012) – Announced earlier this year, noted comics creator and musician Alan Robert (Crawl to Me, the band Life of Agony) is returning with KILLOGY, an insane new series from IDW Publishing that features some familiar faces!
Frank Vincent (Goodfellas, Raging Bull, The Sopranos), Marky Ramone (formerly of The Ramones), and Brea Grant (Heroes, Dexter, We Will Bury You) lead the cast of KILLOGY as three inveterate murderers thrown in the same cell! It’s safe to say there’s a warden out there who’s going to be out of a job. A comic that marches to a different beat, KILLOGY is a mayhem-laden mixture of gritty crime, grisly horror, and dark comedy. Suffice it to say, with a combination like that, no prison could hold it!
“Basing my original characters on the likenesses of Frank, Marky, and Brea has been an awesome experience because I can actually hear their voices in my head while writing their dialogue,” said Robert. “I haven’t really seen this done before in comics and thought it might be an interesting and challenging concept to try. Much in the way that The Twilight Zone had celebrity guest stars at the center of its stories, KILLOGY throws three popular personalities into the middle of some very bizarre and horrific situations.”
One of Robert’s earlier efforts with IDW, the dark thriller CRAWL TO ME, was a hit, and is now in development as a feature film. His career as an artist has taken him to many different corners of the creative world, but IDW is proud to be a part of his comics work. KILLOGY is a rarely unique project that is sure to delight fans cut of many different cloths!
