Official Press Release
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!
“We’ve worked very closely with Jamie and Paul (aka Monoxide) on this release, as well as George Vlahakis, co-founder of Majik Ninja Entertainment, who has been instrumental in this process,” says Source Point Press Editor-In-Chief Travis McIntire. “Twiztid have not only carved a huge name for themselves in music, but have also become a staple in the world of horror. It’s fantastic to be working with legends whose passion matches our own.”
12x Billboard charting Twiztid is recognized worldwide as one of the Juggalo-related groups who have successfully earned respect in mainstream rap and rock culture, breaking out of the shell and amassing an enormous international fanbase – especially since opening their own successful label empire, Majik Ninja Entertainment. In addition, Twiztid cross over heavily into horror, animation, comic, weed and gaming culture – releasing action figures, comic books, cosplay videos, sodas and even launching their own festivals and upcoming pop culture convention - Astronomicon - happening next year. Their most recent full-length album, The Continuous Evilution of Life’s ?s, debuted on the Billboard Top 200 charts at #28.
“As a band, Twiztid has made a career of masterfully blending horror and comedy into their music the same way I’ve made a career of blending horror and comedy into my comic series such as Tales of Mr. Rhee, Nightmare World and Love Stories (To Die For),” says writer Dirk Manning, “making collaborating with them in writing this comic a perfect match for fans of their music as well as readers looking for a new comic that’s fresh, funny, and at times, scary. Everybody wins!”
Source Point Press Founder and Art Director Joshua Werner praised the art in this publication. “It’s hard to find an incredible team as skilled and professional as Marianna Pescosta and Alessandro De Fornasari,” says Werner. “The colors are gorgeous, setting every haunting scene, and Mari’s phenomenal art captured every moment of humor perfectly through the characters’ body language and expressions. This book is a blast, we can’t wait for you to get your hands on it.” Source Point Press is excited to provide a sneak peek at Haunted High-Ons, so here are the first three pages…
