The New Chapter in the Future of ‘Killadelphia’ Premiers in Stores, Marking a Major Turning Point in the Series, and the Ever-Expanding Universe of this Eisner Nominated Vampire Epic
PORTLAND, OR – The Eisner Award nominated Killadelphia from writer Rodney Barnes (American Gods, HBO’s Winning Time, and the record-breaking new Star Wars: The Mandalorian comic book series) and collaborator Jason Shawn Alexander, the artist who redefined Todd McFarlane’s legendary Spawn for a whole new generation, hits a major milestone and series turning point today with the release of the series’ 25th issue!
Series creator Rodney Barnes says “the world of Killadelphia is expanding in a way I never imagined! There are new stories, new monsters, and more perils to come! Can’t wait for our readers to check it out!”
Jason Shawn Alexander adds “Fans new and old to Killadelphia are about to have their minds blown as the series enters its fifth story arc. Everything you thought you knew will be changed as the war with the vampires and soldiers of light comes to a climax! Gods will battle with demons; werewolves will fight on the side of vampires and the blood will most definitely flow.”
The Killadelphia series follows a small-town beat cop who returns home to bury his murdered father, revered Philadelphia detective James Sangster Sr. What he doesn’t anticipate is digging up a mystery that will lead him down a path of horrors and shake his beliefs to their core. The city that was once the symbol of liberty and freedom has fallen prey to corruption, poverty, unemployment, brutality… and vampires. Now, it’s up to Jimmy and an unexpected companion to stop long-thought-dead president of the United States John Adams from building an undead army and staging a bloody new American revolution.
Today, this Eisner Award nominated horror series rages on with more mind-bending twists, in a perfect jumping on point for new readers!
Vampire king and first president of the United States George Washington has unified the warring vampire factions, blurring the lines between good and evil. Now, Washington and company must face one of the most formidable military leaders in history! General Toussaint Louverture and his Haitian army have been resurrected by the side of the light for one thing and one thing only: exterminate all vampires!
The second chapter in this new arc will feature a special Spawn variant cover by series artist and celebrated McFarlane collaborator Jason Shawn Alexander, as part of the Image Comics and Spawn 30th Anniversary festivities, available to preorder with your favorite comic book retailer now!
Also from Rodney Barnes and up-and-coming Marvel artist Alex Lins, comes Monarch, a new tale of love, triumph, disaster, and defeat this February, and available to order in the December dated PREVIEWS catalog, in stores today!
Barnes adds “Monarch is the sum of my childhood Alien themed influences. Films like Close Encounters of the third kind, war of the worlds, and others kept me looking to the skies. Suffice it to say I still want to believe!”
