An homage to classic horror comics of the 50’s, Night Creatures is a three issue series that debuted in April 2019 as a digital comic on ComiXology and other digital comics vendors.
While inspired by classic horror comics, the series takes a unique twist, not just with the chilling tales being told, but in that the artwork is created in high-def CGI by the author himself. Each issue features a different chilling horror story written by the bestselling horror writer.
Gagnon is no stranger to the comics industry, having worked for companies such as Marvel and Dark Horse for nearly 20 years, as well as garnering 7 Amazon bestselling novels in 2017 alone! Night Creatures marks the first time Gagnon has worked with another publisher on one of his creator owned properties.
“Markosia has been wonderful to work with.” said Gagnon in a recent interview. “Harry believed in the idea and presentation from the start. The entire team really gave me all the creative freedom that I could have asked for.”
Night Creatures debuted as a digital download mini-series with Amazon owned comics vendor ComiXology in April and concluded with the third issue in June. Thanks to the great response from horror comics fans, the series is being rushed to a print collection, scheduled for release on August 19th 2019.
As the title suggests, the series focuses on a specific type of horror, with each issue featuring a creature from your nightmares.
“I’ve been a fan of classic monsters since childhood; Frankenstein’s Monster, Wolf Man, Dracula…I still love all of those old movies as much now as I did when I discovered them on late night TV as a kid.” Gagnon explained. “This is my way of showing my respect to all these things that have inspired me, while also doing it in a unique way that adds my own thumbprint to the genre.”
The Night Creatures series is currently available for download from ComiXology and other digital comics vendors. The collected print edition of the series will be available from Amazon and other book vendors beginning Monday, August 19th, 2019 and can be pre-ordered now, so that you don’t miss out on getting your copy.
