Brian Buccellato Brings Foster to Ossm Comics

OSSM Comics has acquired the publishing rights to Brian Buccellato’s creator-owned graphic novel Foster. The story is set against the backdrop of late 60′s/early 70′s urban crime movies, and follows a haunted war veteran who finds himself the guardian of a 6 year-old boy being hunted by a shadowy race of brutal creatures, rising up from the darkness.

The graphic novel is written by Buccellato with art by Noel Tuazon, and will be published by OSSM Comics on July 2, 2014. It will be the first time that the entirety of the story will be in print; Dog Year Entertainment originally published five issues of a planned 6-issue mini-series. Foster will retail for $12.99.

In a release Buccellato said:

Foster is such a personal story for me. As a father of a teenage boy, I wanted to write about fatherhood and specifically the male need to protect your child from the physical dangers of the world,. Foster’s trying to forget the Vietnam War at the bottom of a bottle when he encounters a boy who changes his life. Suddenly he has to navigate a world where technology is stuck in the analog ’70s and supernatural creatures and twisted scientists lurk around every corner. Noel Tuazon really captured the gritty, urban horror at the heart of this story.

BEAUTIFUL SCARS tells the story of Ridley Shaw as he explains to his granddaughter how he got each of his scars, each one gained through either a sad or uplifting adventure. Through his tales, she learns how to tell her own stories and how to hold on to his through her own, magical re-telling.

Weaving historical fiction and fantasy together, Durwin S. Talon and E. G. Thompson remind us of the power of stories, both those from our imaginations and, more importantly, those from our own lives.

This is one of the most heartwarming family tales we’ve ever read. Everyone remembers the first person who inspired them to follow their dreams. This beautiful and elegant fable pays tribute to all our loved ones.
