They revealed the cover of the upcoming third issue (see below). The comic drops April 20, 2016.

Powerless to stop the physical growth of Nemesis, Hudson and Collins harness military firepower, emergency vehicles, and armored tanks to blockade the freeway route to Boston in a last ditch effort to deter the monster.

Island 731 by Jeremy Robinson to be adapted by American Gothic Press!

American Gothic Press (in association with Famous Monsters of Filmland) has announced their next collaboration with international bestselling author Jeremy Robinson. After the success of Project Nemesis, Robinson’s first novel-turned-comic book, the monster-themed publisher is releasing a second story, adapted from Robinson’s work: Island 731. The comic, penned by Jeremy Robinson with Kane Gilmour, will feature art by Jeff Zornow.

Island 731 begins with Mark Hawkins, former park ranger and expert tracker, out of his element, working on board the Magellan, a research vessel studying the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. But his work is interrupted when, surrounded by thirty miles of refuse, the ship and its high tech systems are plagued by a series of strange malfunctions and the crew is battered by a raging storm.

When the storm fades and the sun rises, the beaten crew awaken to find themselves anchored in the protective cove of a tropical island…and no one knows how they got there. Worse, the ship has been sabotaged, one crewman is dead and another is missing. Hawkins spots signs of the missing man on shore and leads a small team to bring him back. But they quickly discover evidence of a brutal history left behind by the Island’s former occupants: Unit 731, Japan’s ruthless World War II human experimentation program. Mass graves and military fortifications dot the island, along with a decades-old laboratory housing the remains of hideous experiments.

As crew members disappear, Hawkins realizes that they are not alone. In fact, they were brought to this strange and horrible island. As Hawkins fights to save his friends, he learns the horrible truth: Island 731 was never decommissioned and the person taking his crew mates might not be a person at all—not anymore.

This six issue limited series will arrive in local comic book stores in May 2016.

Bestselling author Jeremy Robinson’s tale of a test-tube kaiju is coming to comics this week

The fourth title to come from the American Gothic Press catalog is Project Nemesis, a six-part action/adventure story adapted from the bestselling novel by Jeremy Robinson. The series brings a uniquely fascinating kaiju (giant monster) to comics: Nemesis, the product of a governmental experiment and vengeful rage goddess, tearing through New England and leaving horrid destruction in its wake.

The visuals of this massive story are being handled by Matt Frank, most well known for—quite appropriately—IDW’s Godzilla comics. From a script adapted by Robinson himself and rendered in glorious color by Diego Rodriguez, Project Nemesis is poised to make a splash with monster fans on Wednesday, October 7.
