I think the best horror keeps secrets.In my mind, one of the joys of this genre is being surprised by something you didn’t expect in some great “HOLY S#!T!” moments.
In TALES OF MR. RHEE: “Procreation (of the Wicked)” we (myself, Joshua Ross, Austin McKinley, and Sean Burres) created a very film noir vibe as we slowly learned more about Mr. Rhee, what makes him tick, the world he lives in, and — ultimately — how his inability to function in that world almost destroyed him.
Next month TALES OF MR. RHEE: “Karmageddon” begins the second volume in the story of Mr. Rhee. It’s both a prequel and a sequel to “Procreation (of the Wicked)” in which we learn where Mr. Rhee is now as well as what he was doing during the Rapture/Armageddon we saw in NIGHTMARE WORLD.
Because I like to keep surprises, we chose not to give too much away about this mini-series too early… but with it starting next month, well, it’s time.
TALES OF MR. RHEE: “Kamageddon” is a dark and emotionally charged story about faith, family, salvation, and, ultimately, what those things really (RHEE-ly?) mean in the face of the worst circumstances imaginable.
Just like the first book did, “Karmageddon” also features several nods to NIGHTMARE WORLD, including an appearance by a certain Great Old One in the second issue as the world continues to literally be torn apart.
My artistic partners and friends Seth Damoose, Anthony Lee and James Reddington re all doing the best work of their respective careers on this book, and we all agreed not to talk too much about this series until it was about to hit the stands.
Well, with TALES OF MR. RHEE: “Karmageddon” hitting the shelves via Devil’s Due Publishing tarting next month… it’s time, my friends.
Here’s the *REAL* cover to TALES OF MR. RHEE: “Karmageddon” #2. If you dig it, share this link (and your love of it and the series) with all your friends, and PRE-ORDER a copy from your local comic shop this week.
It’s time, my friends. The stars are entering their proper alignment…
