Things you Need Thursday: Devil Slayer TPB!

Make sure you pick up the Dead of Night featuring Devil Slayer trade, by Brian Keene and myself, on stands today!

Abandoned by his fiancée, his family, his church, and his government, Sergeant Dan Sylva returns to Iraq for a third tour of duty -- and a descent into Hell itself. If the demon Belathauzer and the mysterious mercenary group known as Bloodstone have their way, Iraq, the place where civilization began, may also be where civilization ends. The reinvented Devil-Slayer takes Marvel’s DEAD OF NIGHT to terrifying new heights, from award-winning horror novelist Brian Keene (The Rising, Dark Hollow) and artist Chris Samnee (DAREDEVIL: BLOOD OF THE TARANTULA)!

Outstanding drawing. Lots of movement. I was chuckling along to the video of How to Draw Comics the Marvel way with Stan and 'Big' Jogn B on youtube yesterday. This is very Marvel-way

Jason Folkes said...

That sketch kicks ass!
Will you have some of these trades with you at your con apperances???
I would love to buy from you!

Scotty Don't said...

This book was a ton of fun and Chris totally rocked on it!

Brian Jones said...

I agree...great drawing of the new Slayer and the books were a fun read with awesome art by Chris. Pick it up!

Momar Van Der Camp said...

I bought all the single issues but will STILL BUY THE TRADE. That's how much of a ho for your stuff I am Chris. Only a few creators get it. You have official groupies, that weird you out yet?

Unknown said...

I got my copy today. However, I was disappointed that there wasn't any bonus material like character sketches.

Momar Van Der Camp said...

Agreed, as much as I love Marvel, what's the deal with the special features?

By the way, is the group going to be called In-Samnee-acs? Or has that already been coined?

Shane White said...

Wow, Chris, I really dig the line on this one. I'm so used to seeing the open stuff that this seems rather fresh.

Feels like Alex Toth, Pat Boyette and a few others made into a great sandwich.

Please keep doing more like this...I'd love to see where you take it.


Chris Samnee said...

Thanks everyone for the kind words! I would also love to see more material like character sketches collected into the trades, but Marvel's not consulting me yet! :)

Folkes - I will have a small number of these trades to sell. Let me know if I'll see you this summer and I'll hold one for you. :)

Momar - Feel free to run with "In-Samnee-acs", although I think Matt W. gets credit for that name. ;)
