The anthology series features International bestselling and award-winning authors such as Jack Ketchum, Ramsey Campbell, Jonathan Maberry, William F Nolan, Gary Braunbeck, Joe McKinney, Mort Castle, Gene O’Neill, and many more.
Official Press Release:
Evil Jester Comics announced today that it has released its inaugural comic book, Evil Jester Presents, the first of several new comic projects debuting over the next 12 months. Evil Jester Presents includes stories from New York Times Bestselling Author Jonathan Maberry, International Bestselling Author William F. Nolan, and Bram Stoker Award-Winning Authors Jack Ketchum and Joe McKinney.
“Evil Jester Presents is a wonderful renewal of the great tradition of horror comics,” said Rocky Wood, President of the Horror Writers Association.
“I’m a hopeless geek with nearly 60,000 comics in my collection—much of it horror—so this is truly a dream project for me,” said Taylor Grant, Evil Jester Comics co-founder and editor-in-chief. “For years I’ve wanted to bring back the types of horror comics I read as a kid and infuse them with the modern sophistication of today’s best horror writers. We have done just that.”
