SDCC 2018: American Gothic Press Reveals New Titles
Classic horror was alive and well at San Diego Comic-Con 2018. The “Sixty Years of Famous Monsters” panel was packed and American Gothic Press used it to announce new series.
Nice is by Dagen Walker, Joseph Ettinger, and John Terlesky and is described as a “hipster assassin mystery.” The cover is by Tula Lotay. Also mentioned was a sequel to Monster World, one of the publisher’s most popular titles.
But Nice wasn’t the only thing Famous Monsters and American Gothic Press talked about. Three new titles, all obtained from Famous Monsters’ competition at the yearly Silver Scream Festival, were also announced. Denis St. John’s Whisper in the Woods will appear as a short story in an annual, released in October, before being completed as a print graphic novel in 2019. Two Best Graphic Novel Script winners — Black Sunday by Matt Dreiling with art by Polychrome, and Hag by Chad Stroup with art by Jon Clark — will debut as digital first issues before being collected in print. All three feature haunted personalities and uniquely designed monsters, as appropriate for a Famous Monsters-affiliated publisher.
