Tyler Kirkham’s SCREWED Coming to Stores In June

Zenescope Entertainment has announced that it will be publishing acclaimed artist/creator Tyler Kirkham’s (New Guardians, Teen Titans, and Amazing Spider-Man) new creator-owned series, entitled SCREWED, coming in June and will feature covers by series creator Tyler Kirkham and interior artist David Miller.

“SCREWED fits right into the Zenescope wheelhouse and is a perfect addition to our catalog of titles. The combination of Tyler and Zenescope makes this book a must have.” says Zenescope Marketing Manager Stephen Haberman. “I’ve always been a huge fan of Horror films and I love the idea of Frankenstein.” Says creator Tyler Kirkham “It’s a story that’s been retold a million times but none have been like this! This has horror, action and some flat-out sick, twisted moments! I always thought Zenescope would be a great fit for the story as it has a strong lead female role. I’m extremely excited for this series.”

Screwed follows a young woman who awakens in a hospital covered in scars as if she had been taken apart and put back together again; her mind as fragmented as her body. As she tries to piece together what’s happened to her, she will find many enemies are after her but she’ll also find a valuable ally in FBI Agent Erin Scott.

The Superbowl of Comic Conventions- Third Quarter

The Superbowl of Comic Conventions- Third Quarter

Day 3:

Like all the hall of fame coaches such as George Halas, John Madden or Tom Landry, I made second-half adjustments. For instance, I packed a lighter lunch, said no to Starbuck, and reconnected  with a friend, Frank, and his wife, Sarah, who came to the con dressed as 1950’s era Clark Kent & Lois Lane.

So as this particular day at Comic-Con unfolded one thing became more and more apparent: the convention is more fun in cosplay. While the three of us walked the convention floor we were stopped–okay Lois and Clark were stopped–numerous times to have their pictures taken. It got to the point where Frank/Clark remarked to me that he felt like a celebrity.

Good for him, right? Yep, no hard feelings. I mean it’s not like I didn’t have other things to do at the convention. I wasn’t jealous, honest. Okay, maybe just a little bit. But the fact that I came to the convention as myself got Frank/Clark, Sarah/Lois and myself thinking: who could I cosplay as at the next Comic-Con. Here’s the fundamental problem, I have long locks that I’ve been growing for more than 13 years, so my options are limited in terms of who I could be. So anyway, the long and short of it is we decided that maybe I could be Bishop from the time period of the comics where he had locks myself, or maybe even Static.

Okay, so aside from my future cosplay dreams, I actually was able to get some things accomplished on Day 3 and my biggest personal feat was getting Peter David (current writer of X-Factor) to sign a book he wrote on writing comics, which I will admit, was pretty freakin’ cool!!!

Well, that’s pretty much all I can say about Day 3 other than I’m continually having a blast and I look forward to–and slightly dread–the last day of the convention. Who knows, I might actually get stiff-armed my Gene Simmons’s security.

The Superbowl of Comic Conventions- Second Quarter

Day 2:

So did I learn my lesson from my first day at the largest convention that I’ve ever attended? Did the Chicago Bears 2011 season fall apart after Jay Culter went down with an injury? Yes on both counts.

With the lessons learned from Day 1, on today’s agenda involved little to no time spent waiting in lines for panels, and instead I spent that free time snipping pictures, standing in the longest Starbucks line in the history of humanity, attempting to get free swag, and oh yeah, standing  in lines trying to play demos of whatever video games were on display (except for the Nintendo 3DS, damn thing hurts my eyes just looking at it).

So as Day 2 goes, and thanks to technology (i.e., Facebook), I was able to catch up with an old college buddy, Frank. Now a little background for the viewers at home, back back back in 2002 I attended my very first comic convention (as a volunteer), Wizard World Chicago, and you can guess who was with me… yeah that’s right, Frank. Anyway, to make a long story short, for that four day convention Frank and I hit the convention floor and panel rooms hard. And as the story goes I got my first taste of the con lifestyle and indeed I wanted more, and also as lucky would have it I was able to get a sketch of Kang the Conqueror from one of my favorite artist, George Perez.

Anyway that was then and as for the events of Day 2 are concerned I believe I was able to do close to 75% of things I wanted to on the convention floor. Hell, bring this back to the football theme of sorts, I was almost pancaked by one of Gene Simmons (from Kiss fame) lead blockers, aka his four man security detail.

So that’s my Day 2 in a nut shell and trust me this second day at this convention has been a wild and exciting ried. I now look forward to all the trouble and fun that Frank and I will most likely be getting into on Day 3.

In the wake of the worst night of their lives, Sonny and Cheri are ‘wanted’ and on the run.

Tonight, no matter how fast they drive, they can’t escape the mistakes of their youth.

LOOSE ENDS is a gritty, slow cooked, “southern crime romance”, that follows a winding trail down Tobacco Road, through the war torn streets of Baghdad, and into the bright lights and bloody gutters of South Florida…12-Gauge style.

Following a string of brutal drug-runner murders in the States, the U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement agency’s top tactical team is in hot pursuit of the killer.  As they close in on the suspect (drug-kingpin Luis Morales), chaos erupts on the streets in a jumble of bullets and explosions!  As the battle rages, Morales attempts to escape and ICE agent Cole Matai is forced to leave his team and pursue the ruthless killer on foot.  Cole corners Morales and gets the upper hand— but makes a critical decision that will end up haunting him forever.

12-Gauge Comics is known for high-octane action, and ICE is taking that reputation to a new level!  Don’t miss the next installment of this summer’s hottest new series!

About the Publisher

12-Gauge Comics was founded by Keven Gardner in 2004 and currently publishes some of the most successful and critically acclaimed independent comic books in the marketplace today.  12-Gauge members Jason Pearson, Brian Stelfreeze, Cully Hamner, and Doug Wagner are creating new and innovative multi-media concepts for the company, including Pearson’s run-away hit BODY BAGS and THE RIDE, which debuted as the top-selling black and white comic of the year in 2004.  After solidifying its position as a force to be reckoned with by packaging THE O.C.T. (Occult Crimes Taskforce), an original comic book concept co-created and starring actress ROSARIO DAWSON. THE O.C.T. has been featured on “The Today Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “Access Hollywood,” and many other media outlets.

In 2009 12-Gauge began to firmly solidify its unique identity by publishing under its own banner (prior titles were through Image Comics), starting with the company’s first licensed property, THE BOONDOCK SAINTS: The Comic Series — which made a major splash. With all new stories by series creator/director TROY DUFFY, the comics have been selling-out and exposing the 12-Gauge brand to an all-new audience. 12-Gauge then moved into the untapped market of country music with superstar recording artist TRACE ADKINS. In LUKE MC BAIN, Adkins lends his likeness to a hard-as-nails character in an adventure story of revenge and redemption. Trace went on a wide publicity tour for the comics; highlights being a guest appearance on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” and a feature story in “USA Today”. 2010 closed strong with the release of 25 TO LIFE, a limited series that pushed the boundaries of the traditional law enforcement procedural.

2011 looks equally promising; the recently launched high-concept series MAGUS is rewriting the world of magic as we know it. R.P.M., from NYT #1 Bestselling author MICK FOLEY, is a crossover hit, and the just announced action-franchise I.C.E. is generating strong buzz in the industry. Other 2011 titles include the zombie-noir themed DEADTOWN and the gritty crime drama LOOSE ENDS. For more information, please visit www.12gaugecomics.com or email info@12gaugecomics.com.
