Preview Panels for the Final Issue of "Mayday:"
Black Mask Studio recently send the horror chamber preview panels for issue #4 of "Mayday. This issue is written by Curt Pires with illustrations by Alex Diotto & Chris Peterson and colors by Dee Cunniffe.
Issue #4 of "Mayday" is available at participating comic shops.
White hot writer Curt Pires (Upcoming THE TOMORROWS from Dark Horse & THE FICTION from Boom!) teams up with rising star artists Chris Peterson (GRINDHOUSE from Dark Horse & upcoming BROKEN WORLD from Boom!) and Alex Diotto (SOUTHERN DOG from Action Lab) to make something truly unique. MAYDAY is a chance to go into the utterly bizarre world that lives in the shadows of Los Angeles.
When issue #1 came out it sold out at Diamond Black Mask scrambled to get a 2nd printing going for stores. Then the announcement that Tim Kring's Imperative Entertainment is developing MAYDAY for television has propelled this crazy little book into something even bigger. Issue 2 came out and upped the insanity on every level. Issue #3 elevated things further. And this Wednesday issue #4 will conclude one of the most bizarre comics of the year.
A washed-up, drug-addicted screenwriter and a transgender bartender stumble onto a Satanic cult's plan to sacrifice people all across LA (geomapped in the form of a pentagram, of course) and bring on Armageddon. As our intrepid, damaged heroes embark on a suicide mission to stop the crazy cultists, even they wonder if this is all really happening or if they're just plain crazy. Probably both. The latest project from Curt Pires sees him teaming with art sensation Chris Peterson for a story that cuts to the very center of Hollywood mythology and depravity itself.
Solicitation for this issue: Route 66. The end of the line. Welcome to Black Hole Sun.
