Erica Schultz Shows Us Twelve Devils Dancing this July

American comic book writer and editor Erica Schultz, best known for her work on the Charmed comic series from Dynamite Entertainment and as the co-creator of M3, released the 20 page first issue of her newest graphic mini-series, Twelve Devils Dancing, at last year’s New York Comic Con. Now you can get the first issue in your hands from Action Lab: Danger Zone this July, which collects the first three issues (with 64 pages of material).

Twelve Devils Dancing hits all the right notes of a frightening and entertaining cat-and-mouse thriller. When Agent Cooper retired from the FBI with a terminal condition, he was hailed as a hero for his role in solving the gruesome “Crypto Killer” murders. But when the real Crypto Killer emerges from the shadows to taunt him years later, Cooper must confront his past with new clues to solve the case in the little time he has left. The only complication? He has to protect Aisha Miller, a potential target for the Crypto Killer. Aisha is the smartest person (and smartest mouth) in any room. It’s Breaking Bad meets The Following as Cooper and Miller race against the clock to finally bring the real serial murderer to justice.

Working with Schultz on Twelve Devils Dancing is artist Dave Acosta and colorist Andrew Covalt. Cover artists include Kelly Williams, Maria Laura Sanapo, and Adriana Melo for the first volume, and Natasha Alterici, Michael Montenat, and Kevin Maher for volume two. Lastly, the trade paperback will have a cover by the legendary Bill Sienkiewicz!

You can order Twelve Devils Dancing #1 with the Diamond item code MAY181255. The first issue hits comic book stands on July 11th, 2018.

Those Two Geeks Episode Twenty Three: There

On the docket this week: The geeks use fancy editing to cobble together an interview with Markisan Naso and Jason Muhr, the writer and artist of the indie book Voracious. With the Kickstarter for the third volume launching today, the geeks thought it’d  be a great idea to sit down and talk about the Kickstarter, the variant cover rewards, and the comic itself.

We hope you enjoy the interview as much as we did recording it.

You can back the project on Kickstarter now.

As always, the Alex and Joe can be found on twitter respectively @karcossa and @jc_hesh if you feel the need to tell them they’re wrong individually, or @those2geeks if you want to yell at them together on twitter or email ItsThose2Geeks@gmail.com.

Thanks for listening, and we’ll see you next week in the future!
