DIGITAL COMICS: ELDRITCH! comes to comiXology and Graphic.ly
ANYA SOBCZEK is a snarling science major with an arm full of Darwin tattoos. Her brother OWEN is a sensitive young thing in a coven of teenage occultists. The Sobczek sibs have always been brutally competitive, but now that Owen’s blood has started BUBBLING with ancient tentacled abominations, their rivalry’s about to enter a vast new dimension of cosmic terror…
2010: Artists Drew Rausch and Aaron Alexovich hurled their infectious horror/comedy hybrid ELDRITCH! into blazing combat in DC Comics’ final Zuda webcomic competition. After several centuries it emerged, dazed and confused, with the word WINNER indelibly etched on its forehead.
It was promptly buried in an unmarked grave.
This June, ELDRITCH! will be shocked back to life.
Starting JUNE 15th, 2011, ELDRITCH! will be released in six 24-page installments every sixth week to every digital device known to God, Man, and Shoggoth alike, including your desktop, iPad/iPod/iPhone, Android, Nook, Kindle, and eNecronomicon (pending). The issues will be priced at $0.99 each, and the first nine pages are available for FREE DOWNLOAD right now.
ELDRITCH! will be available not only through the fearsome Graphic.ly and comiXology apps, but direct from the artists in pdf format at the official ELDRITCH! site: http://www.heartshapedskull.com/ELDRITCH/
You have waited long enough, Elder Things. Thank you to everyone who helped push ELDRITCH! to victory in 2010, and we hope to drive you all to gibbering madness in 2011. By all means, help spread the infection!
