I’ve been hanging onto this gem for a few months and can finally reveal it. My old pal Justin Greenwood (Stumptown/The Last Siege) illustrated this stunning alternate cover for the upcoming CICADA mini-series, with colors by Paul Little (Morning Glories / SUCKER). More details and info to come, in the meantime I will be staring at this with my mouth wide open.
Horror Hat Trick, the horror movie retrospective show that I co-host, is covering my favorite subject; WEREWOLVES! Check out our thoughts on Fury of the Wolfman, Silver Bullet and The Wolfman(2010)!
Greg Hinkle and I will be appearing at the Halloween 40th Convention in Pasadena this weekend! Stop by our table and get an exclusive first look at our next ghastly collaboration.
As of today all SUCKER related rewards, minus a few stragglers who haven't given me their address yet, have been mailed off! It has been a few years since I executed a mass mailing at this scale, I definitely received a bruising re-education from the Post Office (the blood stained envelopes are not winning me any popularity contests with the mail carriers). Thankfully, we were able to roll with the punches, problem solve and still get the books out ahead of our original November target.
I want everyone who backed the campaign to think of themselves as a publisher because that is who you are now. You made this book happen and the team could not be more grateful to you for doing so. Tony, John, Paul and I have spent so much of our comics careers waiting for permission to do what we love. Adventurous readers, such as yourselves, have freed us from that byzantine mechanism.
What's next for SUCKER? Tony and John are hard at work on Volume Two and I can honestly say, the story has left our hands and become its own beast. And a hungry one at that. As with the first volume I don't want to come back to KS until V2 is completely lettered and ready to go to press.
If anybody wants to tag the SUCKER creators on their networks, here is our social info. FYI, Tony is off the grid and living in a faithful recreation of 1978, we try not to disturb him with news from the future.
If you missed out on the Kickstarter, here's your chance to grab a hot digital slice of grind-house vampire terror. The first Volume of SUCKER is now available for purchase on Comixology! Co-written and pencilled by Tony Talbert, Inked and Edited by John Heebink, colored by Paul Little and co-written and produced by myself, this mayhem filled 64 page experience can be yours for $5.99!
Sucker Vol. 1: Living After Midnight

A 64 page pulse pounding, grind house vampire romp for mature readers! Includes additional Kickstarter extras!
