This January the first season of writer Alex Grecian and illustrator Riley Rossmo’s ongoing cryptozoological thriller, PROOF, will come to an end as the two prepare an all-new season coming in 2010!
“While this season of PROOF is ending, the series is just beginning,” Grecian said. “Not only do Riley and I have a couple of side projects such as his COWBOY NINJA VIKING, but PROOF takes a very big turn with issue #28. It’s a natural place to take a short break. Rest assured we’ll be back and when we start again nothing in PROOF will ever be the same.”
In PROOF, Special Agent John ‘Proof’ Prufrock, also known as Bigfoot, works for The Lodge, an organization dedicated to preserving and protecting ‘monsters’ from the threat of human beings. Since its release the series has received critical acclaim, with three volumes of collections in print and a fourth, PROOF VOL. 4: JULIA, to be available during the hiatus. Both Grecian and Rossmo will remain the regular creative team in the new season, due out in 2010.
Rossmo added, “Another reason is to give new readers a very easy jumping-on point. While we’ve certainly had a great response to the trades, we’re making it even easier and more inexpensive than ever to jump on board. If you’ve never read PROOF before or only do so with the collections, the upcoming new season is your chance to become a regular reader.”
PROOF #28, a 32-page full color comic book for $3.50, will be in-stores January 27th, 2010.
