KILL YOUR DARLINGS
FROM IMAGE COMICS
STORY BY: ETHAN S. PARKER & GRIFFIN SHERIDAN
ART BY: BOB QUINN
LETTERS/DESIGN BY: JOHN J. HILL
Eight-year-old Rose loves nothing more than to play pretend in a magical land of her own creation. To her, that world is as real as our own—from her fluffy friends to the terrible evil that lurks at the center of it all. In one night, the line between fantasy and reality will disappear, an ancient hunger will feed again, and Rose will be pulled into a gruesome saga that began centuries before her birth.
This horror/fantasy epic has been described as “Narnia meets Hereditary.” KILL YOUR DARLINGS is a three year-long passion project for KLC PRESS’ friendly neighborhood Supple Boiz, aka writing duo ETHAN S. PARKER & GRIFFIN SHERIDAN. They’ve teamed up with artist BOB QUINN (Knights of X) and letter/designer JOHN J. HILL to bring this terrifying story to life.
Pre-order your copy of ISSUE #1 by MONDAY, AUGUST 14th to be sure you have one when it drops on SEPTEMBER 6th.
KLC VIP will receive exclusive previews of EVERY ISSUE of KILL YOUR DARLINGS, plus, access to a monthly AFTER SHOW for each release.
The entire KYD Team— Ethan, Griffin, Bob, and John— will be frequent contributors to the newsletter, giving subscribers a full look at the creation of this all-new series. Check out what we’ve already shared about KILL YOUR DARLINGS [HERE].
Along with these two books, we’ll be teasing one of our next series, currently codenamed…
Over the next year, this newsletter will be the first and only destination for details regarding this all-new project from KLC PRESS. We can’t wait to share more details about it.
THE CHAIN GANG COMICS COMMUNITY
Lets just say it, the CHAIN GANG is the best comics fanbase out there. The community we’ve been able to build over the past couple years has been so remarkable and we want to continue to grow it through some really fun opportunities to bring readers and creators together.
Twice a month, KLC PRESS creators will be streaming live to chat about anything and everything comics related. Sometimes we might have multiple creators or SPECIAL GUESTS on… sometimes we may have a topic to chat about… and sometimes it might just be a free-for-all!
Plus, the beloved podcast STEG-MAN AND HIS AMAZING FRIENDS is set to make a return in a new monthly livestream format!
KLC VIP will be sent exclusive access to be a part of these livestreams and JOIN THE PANEL!
Before the inception of KLC PRESS, co-founders DONNY CATES and RYAN STEGMAN brought the comics creative process to the fans as they fleshed out an entire story across a now legendary six-nights of livestreams. And now, the “creative sessions” have evolved into a new MONTHLY CREATIVE SUMMIT, where KLC PRESS CREATORS and the Chain Gang Comics Community will work together live over stream to develop a story alongside the entire community!
Like our livestreams, KLC VIP will be sent exclusive access to join creators ON-SCREEN during these very special monthly streams.
The KLC PRESS DISCORD SERVER will continue to be a haven for the Chain Gang to interact and discuss KLC Press titles, comics, movies, and more, even between our streams! We’re already 3 years and 264 members strong— join us!
KLC VIP will have access to EXCLUSIVE VIP CHANNELS within the server for special announcements and early spoiler discussion!
And that’s just all the stuff we know is on the horizon for YEAR 3 of KLC PRESS. Who knows what other dope stuff may come your way in the next twelve months! You’ll just have to SUBSCRIBE to find out!
If you like what we’re doing here at KLC PRESS or just want to SUPPORT INDEPENDENT COMICS, then we highly encourage you to subscribe to our paid MONTHLY or ANNUAL subscription tiers and join the KLC VIP.
A paid subscription still costs just $5/month. That’s just about the price of a single comic book or a coffee.
With that $5, you won’t just be directly supporting independent comics and the making of creator-owned books, but you’ll also receive all the exclusive perks we just detailed.
Think of the KLC VIP subscription less like a streaming service and more like a Patreon. The subscription supports the making of more badass books for you all to read, but you’ll also receive a bunch of perks, including at least one digital comic a month!
Let’s run through the bonus perks one more time…
