There are a number of publishers that are creating digital only comics for those who have ventured into the digital comics waters. Top Cow has announced it will release a full length graphic novel exclusively for digital comic readers.
Manifestations is described as a supernatural thriller about a young girl who can reach into “the dark place” and bring back spirits she finds there.
Sometimes, it’s a recently passed loved one or pet she finds… but other times it’s something horrible… something that doesn’t belong among the living. Something that wants to take Alice and her mother to the darkness of the grave… forever!
I’m already spooked out from that description, and according to series writer Raffaele lenco, the genre is a great source for inspiration.
“I’m a big fan of supernatural thrillers like The Sixth Sense, so I really wanted to create a graphic novel with great twists and turns that keeps the reader guessing, where you don’t want to put the book down because you just want to read one more page,” said creator Ienco.
According to Top Cow, the company is co-developing Manifestations as a feature film.
“With Manifestations Raffaele tells a dark tale but it unravels in an inspiring, hopeful way,” added Top Cow President Matt Hawkins. “I’m a huge fan of Ienco’s work on Epic Kill and am really excited to be working with the guys at Content House on this project.”
The 126-page original digital graphic novel arrives on comiXology on August 29 and has an asking price of $4.99.
