Friday, October 08, 2010

It's October, and Todd McFarlane Productions has a slate full of exciting comic product making its way to a retailer near you!

Those of you who caught our hard-edged crime fiction mini-series Sam and Twitch: The Writer this summer can now grab all four issues in trade paperback form.

In the dead of winter during a nasty snowstorm a routine homicide investigation takes a literary twist. A suspected drug dealer is found dead, naked and with what seems to be part of a larger story written all over his body. This is the beginning of the serial killing spree dubbed by the press as the "The Writer." Detectives Sam Burke and Twitch Williams, helped by graphologist Charlotte Garland, have to discover the truth, and end the literary nightmare that has descended, like the snow, upon the city.

On sale this coming Wednesday, October 13th, Sam and Twitch: The Writer TP includes a special foreword by series writer Luca Blengino and artist Luca Erbetta as well as behind-the-scenes sketches, page variations, unused art and more! Featuring artwork from famed Italian creative team Luca Blengino (Story), Luca Erbetta (Pencils), Fabio Bono (Inks), and Filippo Rizzu (Colors), this is a title that shouldn't be missed. And at the bargain price of $9.99, why would you?
