Welcome to in Sanity, AZ

James Ninness today announced his newest project, in Sanity, AZ. Along with Michael Drace Fountain, Marvel Losada and Joe Pezzula, in Sanity, AZ is a new comic horror anthology. The project began in November 2009 as the team wrote the book in a cabin in the woods, a perfect setting. After delays as the project went through various publishers, incarnations and production issues, it’s now here.

Ninness and his team have turned to Kickstarter to take the project the rest of the way for the entire project. If the project is successfully funded, all three comics will be released digitally and be sold for $1.99, the smallest of books clocks in at 52 pages. Afterwards a trade paperback of all three issues will be released. The single issues will be released in July, August and November and trade should be out in time for Christmas 2013.

So, what is in Sanity, AZ about?

The book focuses on a small town in the middle of the desert. You know the town. The same town you drive by every time you cross the country or hustle through the desert. The kind of town that causes you to stare from the comfort of your car and think to yourself: “who in the hell would live out here?” This particular town is a bit further down the highway, a highway not often travelled. It is as lost in time as a grain of sand in the desert. And to the natives of this town, that’s not a problem. They have adapted. They have their own way of doing things.

A long time ago, deep in the deserts of Arizona, a mayor by the name of Cambridge decided to build an asylum for the undesirables. A place the people of color could receive the mental help they needed away from the eyes of civilized society. It was a dream that turned into a nightmare. Things went wrong, as they are wont to do, and the inmates revolted. Over time the inmates settled the desert, carving out land and making it their own. Utilizing a sign from the asylum, the citizens settled on the name “Sanity”.

The Kickstarter campaign will feature a bit more information, as well as some sneak peeks of the art to come and will launch on Friday, February 1, lasting 30 days.

in Sanity, AZ (TPB)

DECEMBER 2013
Welcome to Sanity, Arizona. It’s a small town, near the middle of the Mojave Desert, run by a different type of human. The natives of Sanity move a little bit slower, smile a little bit longer, and eat sausages made of tourists. This horror series follows the story of a different type of society, one that functions of its own accord and would rather be left alone than participate in the world the rest of us dwell in. Unfortunately for them, and everyone else, people tend to find themselves in Sanity, AZ.
