Posted by June 22, 2017 Comment

James Whynot is known for an art style full of heavy texture and black ink, with brilliant splashes of color, expressed in his comic Bolts published by Action Lan, described as Frankenstein meets the wild west after an apocalypse, with giant monsters for good measure.

He’s teaming up with writer ML Miller of Black Mask’s Pirouette for a new comic also from Black Mask… Gravetrancers. Take a look…

GRAVETRANCERS #1
Writer: M.L. Miller
Artist: James Michael Whynot
SRP: $3.99
Full Color | Mature | 36 pages
Synopsis: On a journey to track down the grave of their estranged father, Maribel and Anthony find their way to the Malort Cemetery, a strange, seemingly abandoned field of mostly unmarked tombs. There they encounter an eccentric clan of grave-robbers who’ve devised a highly-addictive drug made from human remains–and the fresher the corpse, the stronger the dose. What started out as an attempt to reconnect with the past becomes a descent into a psychedelic, neon-colored nightmare, will Maribel and Anthony find their way through the hallucinogens or will they become the next hit?
Written by M.L. Miller (Pirouette) and featuring mind-shredding artwork by new artist James Michael Whynot, Gravetrancers delivers a grisly grindhouse tale of taboo and terror.

And a few other comics Black Mask has out for September 2017…
