Indie horror comic label Scary Tales Publishing announced the release of the premier issue of their first family friendly comic book, “SUPERED-UP MONSTER KIDS”. This first issue collector’s edition tells the origin story for this new super-team; revealing how four, marginally dorky, horror movie loving kids, become the monster-powered heroes known as Draculad, Frankenteen, Mummy’s Girl and Zomboy.
Written by Scary Tales publisher and founder, Kevin M. Glover, a life-long monster kid himself, the series promises to deliver light-hearted adventures the whole family can enjoy. Says Glover, “Think Teen Titans; Transylvania style with sort of an Archie Comics’ small town vibe thrown in for good measure. In their first adventure, the novice heroes must defend their home town from invading Martians. Talk about launching with a bang!”.
This first 20-page issue was illustrated by relative newcomer, Mohamed Fouad. Even though Fouad hails from Egypt, he deftly adds a comedic, Americanized touch to his panels. Juanfran Moyano, the front cover artist, is from Spain, so the book is quite an international collaboration.
The book retails for just $5.00 and will be officially released at the Scream LA Horror convention at the Pasadena Convention Center the weekend of August 6th and 7th. The book can also be ordered online at FracturedScaryTales.com. “SUPERED-UP MONSTER KIDS” is the first full-color and comic-book size comic in the publisher’s magazine size B&W retro horror comic line-up. Other titles include the anthologies “MONSTER SMASH-UPS” and the flagship comedic horror mag, “FRACTURED SCARY TALES”.
Publisher Kevin M Glover is perhaps best known as the producer of the cult films, “Dinosaur Valley Girls” and “Venus Flytrap”. He is a published writer, multi-award winning screenwriter, and an active member of the Horror Writers Association. He can be contacted through his website: ScreamWriter4Hire.com.
