12-Gauge Comics Expands its Serial Killer Universe with Plastic Hardcover and New Narco OGN from Doug Wagner and Daniel Hillyard

Four years ago, writer Doug Wagner, artist Daniel Hillyard, colorist Laura Martin, and letterer Ed Dukeshire unleashed Edwyn, a retired serial killer with a…unique girlfriend, Virginia, who just so happens to be a blow-up doll. Published by Image Comics, Plastic charts Edwyn’s descent into madness as he embarks on a brutal, chaotic (and often hilarious) war on the unfortunate souls who kidnap his synthetic lover.

That same creative team presents the definitive edition of this gonzo blood-splattered epic with the Plastic: Deluxe Edition hardcover. This volume features a new cover from Hillyard and Martin alongside a new “lost scene” six-page backup story revealing Edwyn’s brutal origins.

In addition, that same team has also reunited alongside colorist Dave Stewart for Narco, a new 136-page graphic novel and the next phase of the Plastic universe. (The overarching fiction also includes Vinyl, the killers-vs-cultists blockbuster by Wagner and Hillyard currently published by Image Comics.)

Narco is a Hitchcockian thriller about a benevolent 20-something–Marcus–who suffers from a rare form of narcolepsy triggered by stressful and traumatic events. After being wrongfully accused of his neighbor’s murder, Marcus pursues the true killer at the mercy of his sleep-inducing condition.

Both the Plastic: Deluxe Edition and Narco are available exclusively in a joint Kickstarter. Any orders completed by 12:12 PM EST on Wednesday (10/27/2021) receive a free PLASTIC print by Daniel Hillyard and Laura Martin.
