Horrorcore rap duo Twiztid are unveiling their new one-shot comic from Source Point Press at New York Comic Con October 5th – 8th. A limited edition convention exclusive variant cover will be available at the Source Point Press booth and a free autograph session will even take place there from 1-4pm Saturday Oct. 7th with writer Dirk Manning, artist Marianna Pescosta, colorist and letterer Alessandro De Fornasari, and even Jamie Madrox and Monoxide themselves!
Source Point Press is releasing a new horror graphic novel titled ‘The Rejected’, which is hitting stores this fall. An early limited edition variant cover was released at Motor City Comic Con in May and promptly sold out at the convention. Source Point Press and writer Stan Konopka will be giving one more chance at getting an early limited edition release with a special run of 100 Garden State Comic Fest exclusive covers that can be purchased at their convention July 8th and 9th. This variant cover will feature artwork by Keyla Valerio (the artist from the incredibly popular Source Point Press comic ‘The Séance Room’).
The Rejected is written by Stan Konopka, with art by Corey Christian Anderson, lettering by Micah Myers, and with cover art by Shawn Langley. While the title does not hit stores until this fall, it will be available digitally in July, and Source Point Press is taking pre-orders for print copies on their website now, to ensure loyal readers get a copy before it sells out. The 56-page graphic novel retails for only $5.99. “This creative team is a welcome addition to the Source Point Press family, and The Rejected is a perfect fit in our lineup,” says Editor-In-Chief Travis McIntire.
This synopsis of the graphic novel was provided by writer Stan Konopka and famed author and filmmaker David C. Hayes: Billy is hounded, bullied and abused. He wants nothing more than a loving family... but it doesn't seem to be in the cards for him. That hate. That dejection. It calls out in Billy's voice and, this time, something answered. The Rejected, led by Mr. Teeth, offer Billy otherworldly protection and a place in the family. The shadowy beings allow Billy to take his revenge on anyone that maligned him. Billy has to be careful, though. The Rejected can make your desires come true... but at what price?
“The Rejected is the type of story that we can all relate to on some level, and one that forcibly turns your head to face the darkness within us all,” says Source Point Press Art Director Joshua Werner. “What would we do? How far would we go, if we had Mr. Teeth by our side?”

Source Point Press has launched a 30-day Kickstarter campaign June 12th for an officially licensed cross-stitch craft book titled Evil Dead 2: The Book of the Thread. The book features over 20 officially licensed Evil Dead 2 cross-stitch patterns by renowned horror thread artist Rebecca Martz-Burley (aka Demon Monkey Craft), in collaboration with illustrator Teri Heidemeyer. The book’s layout, design and accompanying illustrations are by Joshua Werner, and the book is edited by Werner and Source Point Press Editor-In-Chief Travis McIntire.
Rebecca Martz-Burley of Demon Monkey Craft is known for her horror cross-stitch art, as well as for developing her own custom patterns, which are highly sought after by horror fans and crafters around the world. “I knew that I could do more, but I had to push myself to do a lot better and to think bigger,” says Rebecca. “And this is the fruit of that labor.”
Deadite Henrietta acts as the guide throughout the book, teaching cross-stitch methods and giving tips and tricks in hilarious deadite fashion. The book has designs that range from simple beginner patterns to complex advanced ones. The Kickstarter serves as not only an opportunity to pre-order the book, but also a way to get bonus rewards at different tiers, including bonus horror cross-stitch patterns, digital Source Point Press horror comics, art prints by Werner and Heidemeyer, and even original cross-stitch art pieces by Rebecca Martz-Burley herself.
“When going through our submissions and idea pitches last year we came across Rebecca Martz-Burley’s email,” says Editor-In-Chief Travis McIntire, “and she sent us something really different. After Josh and I saw her work, and we decided to narrow the horror focus down to Evil Dead 2, we got the studio on board and the ball really started rolling quickly from there.”
Source Point Press Art Director Joshua Werner says, “Working with Rebecca has been amazing. Her mind is a factory of great ideas and our love and passion for horror and the Evil Dead franchise intertwined greatly to make a book that we’re really proud of. This book is for the Evil Dead 2 fans. Even if they’ve never done any cross-stitch in their life, they’ll have a blast learning the craft with this book, and creating some badass Evil Dead 2 artwork along the way.”
