Kickstarter: The Devil Is Due In Dreary

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Independent,

Devil Is Due In DrearyI love comics with a Western-style setting, and if you throw in some apocalypse too, even better. Creator David Parkin and Executive Editor Daryl Freimark describe The Devil Is Due In Dreary as “Classic cars, pompadours and rock-n-roll meet the folklore of the American southwest in this rockabilly take on the classic western.”

Team Dreary, in conjunction with artist Allan Jefferson, successfully published their first issue through Ardden. Now they’re going through Kickstarter to fund issues 2-4 and wrap up the story.

And what is that story? “Two strangers with a questionable past arrive in the reclusive town of Dreary and unknowingly fulfill a prophecy the town believes will precede the coming of the apocalypse.”

And believe it or not, that story has a personal element to it: “The history of our project dates back to David Parkin's childhood growing up in the Southwest and hearing tales of the Devil.”

In addition to Parkin, Freimark and Jefferson, the creative team includes Alex Sanchez doing covers, Jonas Trindade inking and Rainer Pretter making the colors beautiful.

Looks good, boys!
