Message from Tim Sullivan!
If you’re reading this, God bless you, because you are the real deal- a tried and true, to the bone MANIAC! Now we’ve been talking about this 2001 MANIACS comic book for months now, many of you showed up at the various promo events to get your "Preview Edition" signed, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Now as fate would have it, we’ve had some delays at the printer and it seems like it’s taken an eternity, but I am here to tell you: There is no more waiting to be had.
THE BOOK IS DONE AND IN COMIC STORES THIS WEDNESDAY!
And wait till you see it. I know fans of MANIACS will be thrilled. Trust me, it blew me away. The artwork is that stunning. It’s exactly how I envisioned it- a combination of the old EC horror comic TALES FROM THE CRYPT crossed with their politically charged war themed TWO FISTED TALES.
The story is the origin of just how these fine folks of Pleasant Valley came to be vengeance-starved, Northerner-hunting maniacs. You’ll see just how Mayor Buckman got that patch eye of his, and you’ll also meet three brand new maniacs (Scarlet Red, Jim Crow and Doc Tickles) that will be featured prominently in the upcoming sequel, BEVERLY HELLBILLYS.
It’s called CURSE OF THE CONFEDERACY and it’s only FOUR MEASLY BUCKS, so how the hell can you go wrong?
There are four different collector covers, and for a few dollars more you can get a special edition signed by me and Robert Englund, who, by the way, worked with me on making sure Buckman is depicted and drawn EXACTLY how Robert would play him if this comic were an actual movie. Fact is- I kinda feel like this book is a movie- think of it as a screenplay with storyboards for a future maniac movie yet to be!
So what are you waiting for? CLICK ON THIS LINK AND ORDER THE GOSH DANG BOOK RIGHT NOW!!
Spread the Red— Tim Sullivan
Tim will be signing copies of the DRIFTWOOD DVD on Monday, November 12th, 2007 at 7PM at DARK DELECACIES located in Burbank, CA at 4213 West Burbank Boulevard. Make sure you drop by and say hi!
