THE POUND graphic novel at distribution level.

[San Diego, CA – October 3, 2011] – Frozen Beach Studios and IDW Publishing proudly announce the distribution-level sell out of the graphic novel THE POUND, created by Stephan Nilson and Charles Pritchett, drawn by Karl Waller.

“The Pound could very well replace one of my most favorite overlooked series of all-times, Simon Oliver and Tony Moore’s The Exterminators,” says Comicvine.

Comicbuzz proclaimed, “It’s (The Pound) a smart idea and one that deserves a wide audience.”

Pre-publication buzz like this is being credited to a high demand in first week reorders.

“I’m thrilled that THE POUND is receiving such wide support from the local comic book stores and the readers,” exclaims Nilson. “Charles and I have been working on the idea for THE POUND for some time and really want to give a new take on the classic and not-so-classic monsters. I hope the readers stick with the series – We have a lot more fun in store.”

THE POUND is a 128-page full-color graphic novel that retails for $19.99. Check your local comic book store for availability. If you didn’t get a copy yet, you better hurry. In the meantime, you can whet your appetite with a free download of the first chapter here,



What do two unemployed municipal animal control specialists do when their city is infested with monsters? They open a facility, ‘The Pound,’ dedicated to the capture and rehabilitation of monsters looking to coexist with the human race. What they fail to realize is their community service is putting a serious kink in the original four monsters’ plans for all out Armageddon.
