From Source Point Press:
Source Point Press has announced they are currently in production on a graphic novel titled “Holliston: Friendship is Tragic”, based on the horror sit-com Holliston tv series created by filmmaker Adam Green. This announcement coincides with Source Point’s debut publisher booth at C2E2 in Chicago, and to celebrate the announcement the first promotional image for the comic will be available as a C2E2 exclusive art print limited to only 50 copies. Writer Greg Wright, artist Stephen Sharar, Editor Travis McIntire, and colorist and letterer Joshua Werner will be in attendance and available to sign the prints.
The characters from the tv series appear in this brand new stand-alone adventure, being brought to comics for the very first time. Adam, Joe, Corri, and Laura are about to discover just what their friendship can handle when Adam finds a cursed credit card and buys his friends some Halloween gifts. The presents are perfect… a little too perfect. Soon, mad killers, giant monsters, and evil aliens are on the loose, as well as the deadliest threat of all: success! Will the gang sell out? Will they ever speak to each other again? What’s the return policy for cursed credit card purchases? Find out in Holliston: Friendship is Tragic!
“For a newer publisher like us to be given an opportunity of this magnitude, by a creator like Adam, is beyond huge,” says Editor-In-Chief Travis McIntire. Our number- one priority is to release a book that he’ll be proud has the Holliston name.” Holliston: Friendship is Tragic is based on a concept by Gary Sobek, and has been fully scripted by writer Greg Wright (Monstrous, Wild Bullets) and is currently in the process of being penciled by Stephen Sharar. The graphic novel is scheduled to be released in October of this year.
Coupled with the recent announcement that the Holliston cast has begun reading scripts for Season 3 of the television series, it’s a very exciting time to be a fan, a member of the Holliston Nation!
