Screamland Collected

5 August 2008 (Berkeley, CA) - This October, the original movie monsters get their day thanks to Image Comics writer, Harold Sipe and artist, Hector Casanova, in the pages of SCREAMLAND!

"In an era of films shot against green screens and fixed in post, where have the iconic creatures gone," Sipe asked. "SCREAMLAND is a love letter to old Hollywood using monstrous metaphors, while not whitewashing over any of the ugly bits. The characters' fall into unattended convention signings, failed romances, and dot-com busts is only the beginning of the story."

The SCREAMLAND deluxe tradepaperback features an introduction from SCALPED's Jason Aaron, eight never-before-seen pages, a behind the scenes look at Casanova's artistic process, and a pinup gallery featuring artists such as Nathan Fox, Steve Sanders, Kerry Callen, and many more. In addition, SCREAMLAND fans can get another fix of their favorite movie monsters in October's PROOF #13, also featuring THE SAVAGE DRAGON.

CASANOVA and UNCANNY X-MEN writer Matt Fraction praised the book as, "Beautiful, brilliant, brutally hilarious, and hilariously brutal. I wish MY first comic was this good."

SCREAMLAND (AUG082243), a 152-page full color tradepaperback for $16.99, will be in stores October 29th.
