Schizophrenia

Both titles are horror anthologies.
OK, I’ve been hinting about this for quite some time, but haven’t yet shown it off, it is the first title of Atlas Unleashed, the start-up publisher that I’m associated with these days. My good friend, Mark Mazz is the publisher, President of the company, Visionary, and inspiration behind it all (he is also the constant buzzing sound I hear in the back of my head whenever I fall behind on the creative end of my own work).

This book has been out for a month or so now, and will be one of the titles that we will have on display at our table at the upcoming New York Comic Con (October 8 - 10, 2010 at the Jacob K. Javits Center). To be sure, we are hoping to have a couple of other titles also available, but more on them later. Right now I want to talk about Schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia is the sister title to Psychosis! (to be re-released and retitled Psychosis Today! If Psychosis Today! is the doorway to madness, then Schizophrenia steps on through to the other side.

Both titles are horror anthologies that delve into the darker things that frighten us. Personally, I find the stories that I read in these two books much scarier than most of the hack and slash films that proport to be horror films.

In this debut issue we find a disturbing tail written by Nathan Barker and illustrated the the always talented and ever-lovely Shawnti Therrien entitled Static Lullaby, This is followed by Angry Man, which was written Acevedo-Marcarzan, and is one of the last stories illustrated by Rusty Haller. Compulsion is by Rich Terdoslavich, and the issue is rounded out by the Mark Mazz & James Web story A visit with good ole...Doctor Frommenstadt.

I hightly suggest that you get uyour hands on a copy of this extraordinary comic, and, well, enjoy yourself. Hopefully we will have e-commerce up on the website soon, but in the meantime, if you get yourselves to the NY Comic Con, you'll be able to find us in Artist's Ally. Swing on by, say high, and pursue this and the other comics we'll be selling there.
