PREORDER: 'Werewolves vs. Dinosaurs' Slashes Its Way into Comic Shops This August!

Claw vs Talon! Fur vs Scales! Supernatural vs Prehistoric! Werewolves vs Dinosaurs brings fans a creature feature with more bite per page than your average horror comic! Introducing the first release from the American Mythology Dark series, the publisher brings fans a clash of monstrous proportions to satisfy even the most hardcore horror fan.  

The creation of comic book artist Chris Scalf (Star Wars) and writer Eric Dobson, Werewolves vs Dinosaurs is an all-out adrenaline-filled fang fest that finds the main character, Cade, in the middle of a supernatural smack down orchestrated by a group of mysterious men in black. Instead of catching a long needed break in the sleepy little town he stumbles into, Cade lands on a runaway train ride full of over-the-top carnage, mayhem, and mystery that rivals the wildest grindhouse films ever made.   

Under partnership with the series’ creator, American Mythology Productions (AM) will launch  Werewolves vs Dinosaurs as a one-shot, in your face, talon biting, 32-page comic book in the May 2016 edition of PREVIEWS from Diamond Comic Distributors, listed under “American Mythology Productions,” on page #279. It carries a $3.99 U.S. cover price.

The book takes the comic publisher in a new direction by adding horror to its expanding catalogue of science fiction, comedy, adventure, and all-ages offerings. The new Dark series will give readers exactly what the title implies, a heavier dose of tales that tingle the spine and provide the backdrop for nightmares with the stunning art provided by Scalf doing both the cover work and interior art.   

Werewolves vs. Dinosaurs is sort of a sequel to a previous story that came about as a joke. My son is a big rail fan and loves going on trips to distant towns to visit rail lines. I myself am a comic/sci-fi fan, I would always wonder out loud if there were in any comic shops in any of these towns… We kidded around about the need for my sci fi/monster interests to coincide with his train hobby in a comic book— something like “Werewolves in a train.” This led me to doing a mock pulp cover for said comic. Eric Dobson, a friend who is also a great writer, saw it, and wanted to write a story around it. We initially were going to publish that one first, but sometime after that I had the thought that we should do a sequel. I had a story idea I brought to Eric and asked if he would want to flesh that one out instead… The rest is history. We had a lot of fun going back and forth on this and developing these characters and storyline ideas. The sequel ended up being more of the origin story and here we are…” said Scalf about the new comic.

Writer and co-creator Eric Dobson said, "When Chris and I first started playing with the idea for Werewolves vs Dinosaurs, we both figured it'd be a fun, goofy idea, but as we waded deeper into the idea, the story and the characters, we both realized we had the chance to put out a really cool book - the kind of thing we both loved as kids. We're hoping we can continue the story, dig into the characters we've created, and of course unleash a bunch more monsters and mythical creatures onto the page."

“When Chris first approached us about doing this series, we just looked at each other and said what a cool concept for a comic. The title alone grabs you and makes you want to see more. When he showed us some of his preliminary concept art for the series, we knew it was a no-brainer that we just had to put this book out. We couldn’t think of a better way to help introduce readers to our new Dark series,” said Michael Bornstein, American Mythology’s publisher. “The book really is a thrill ride for readers from start to finish and delivers on its promise to keep you at the edge of your seat. When you can deliver such a potent combination of concept, art, and story, you can’t help but get excited about a project like this. We’re hoping fans will devour this book as fast as the carnivores that fill its pages as we kick off yet another new chapter to our expanding lineup. Sit back, strap in, and leave the lights on, as we unleash Werewolves vs Dinosaurs this summer!”

REVIEW: 'Infidel' #1 by Pornsak Pichetshote, Aaron Campbell, and Jose Villarrubia

'Infidel' #1 by Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell arrives at a time when the horrors of everyday life for marginalized people is scary enough but add misogyny and xenophobia from demons and well, that's just multi-dimensional haterade.
