Kevin Smith has a huge fan base. Some of them are haters, and some of them are lovers… And some probably take their adoration for the writer/director a bit too far. At least that is the premise of the upcoming Kidnapping Kevin Smith from new comic publisher Pathetic Aesthetic Comics.
UPDATE: Take the jump for a sneak peek of the issue!
It’s tale of two slacker comic book store employees (Ralph Norman and Jeff Lee), who have big dreams, but zero initiative and zero prospects. That all changes when Ralph; the “brains” of the operation, hatches a scheme to kidnap indy filmmaker Kevin Smith and force him to write a screenplay for them. Kind of a cross between the movies “Ruthless People” and “Misery”; with the foul mouthed comedy of Kevin Smith. Their plans take a turn for the worse (or better, depending on who’s side you’re on) when Kevin Smith contacts the outside world and alerts his fan base that he’s been abducted.
According to the press release, Kidnapping Kevin Smith can be found in the June issue of Previews, and is scheduled to arrive in August 2011.
