Up and coming comic’s publisher, Inverse Press, is hot on a streak of recent success. The publisher has had two successful Kickstarter campaigns to launch first issues of both Flesh of White and Roadkill du Jour and looks to add a third with the Flesh of White’s campaign for issue #2 showing a strong start (click the link and consider backing!). That activity alone would be enough for any small publisher to get their start, but Inverse Press is ready with yet another stellar announcement! Clown Town has been announced with a May 15 release via comiXology Submit!
From the press release:
Independent comics publisher, Inverse Press, is pleased to announce the May 15, 2013, digital release of horror graphic novel, Clown Town, via the comiXology Submit portal. Written by Kevin LaPorte (Roadkill du Jour) and fully illustrated by Amanda Rachels (Flesh of White, Arcana Studios’ The Book), Clown Town is a 124-page tale of clown horror, featuring a 96-page core story, two 8-page back-up stories, and associated art and materials created specifically to support production of the project!
CLOWN TOWN – Where killer clowns are avenging spirits for abused children. Where abused children meld into the carnie masses, masked by twisted inner faces. Where young Chelsea Schroeder is left to her own devices in the search for her lost friend, Melvin. But Melvin may already be a part of the dark circus, simultaneously its beneficiary and its victim! And Chelsea may soon join him, unless she evades the clowns who just may be her saviors!
