The Family Graves Tearing Into Stores this Halloween Source Point Press and Comics Experience are proud to announce The Family Graves Vol. 1: Fiercely Family will be hitting store shelves October 23rd and is available for stores to order in Previews now.
This trade paperback collects the first story arc of the hit indie series described by Phil Hester as “a satisfying combination of The Incredibles and classic Universal Monsters films.”
This trade features new cover art by series artist Brian Atkins and colorist Juancho, and invites readers to jump into the first four issues just in time for Halloween. It also includes never-beforeseen variant cover artwork by Joe Eisma, Megan Levens, Lorenzo Lizana, and Robert Atkins along with pin-ups by Drew Moss and Craig Rousseau, early character designs, and more.
The Family Graves is equal parts horror, heroics, humor and heart: When a dysfunctional family of monsters discovers a set of magical mirrors and the dark power they hold, they race across dimensions to capture the mirrors and prevent a chronal vampire from devouring the space-time continuum and destroying reality.
But can the werewolf dad, medusa mom, teen siren, fish-boy, and adorable baby zombie stick together long enough to keep reality from falling apart? Timothy Bach’s fun, adventurous script blends science fiction and a love of classic monster movies to create a supernatural tale with heart. At its core, this is a family story—primarily about fathers and sons—dressed up in the teeth and claws of a marvelous monster story.
The artwork of Brian Atkins brings the bombastic high adventure and fantastic elements of this world to life while delivering quiet emotional moments of struggle for these all-toohuman monsters.
