Anyway, the 2nd series of writer Matt Pizzolo and artist Anna Wieszczyk’s GODKILLER is available now for preorder the two digitally and in print. The 4-problem mini is acquiring a bump in page count over the initial series (from 96 to 136) and it’ll run you $ 6.66 digitally, $ 16.66 for the dead trees version and $ 19.99 for each.

GODKILLER: TOMORROW’S ASHES VOL 2 GROWS
DIGITAL + PAPERBACK HYBRID RELEASE MODEL
- Common sci-horror transmedia franchise raises page counts
due to results of digital/paper release model -
Halo-8 Entertainment opened up pre-orders right now for the following mini-series in its common GODKILLER franchise and has elevated page count by practically 50% (from 96 pages to 136 pages) for the same price: $ six.66 digital, $ 16.66 paper, $ 19.99 digital-paper hybrid.
“Anna and I had been about to get ourselves in problems by letting this mini-series run longer than it was supposed to,” said writer-creatorMatt Pizzolo, “but, thanks to the audience support and total achievement we had with the very first experiment of this hybrid digital/paper model, we’re ready to afford providing a lot more material for the exact same cost.”
In fact, Halo-8’s earlier digital-paper hybrid experiment with GODKILLER: TOMORROW’S ASHES Book one was so successful it inspired Pizzolo to partner with Steve Niles (writer 30 DAYS OF Night) and Brett Gurewitz (proprietor Epitaph Records, guitarist-songwriter Poor Religion) on Black Mask Studios, a new publisher-distributor devoted to the model.
“We’re blessed with a pretty diverse audience that supports our stories irrespective of the format we use as an interface. It’s cool that folks find out about Godkiller on Netflix or Xbox or an Atari Teenage Riot display and then come to the comics for much more story. Most of those readers never use pull lists so we have to be innovative about obtaining our comics to them,” said Pizzolo.
Pizzolo pointed out that the comic book format has some imaginative advantages above the animated GODKILLER films.
“Tomorrow’s Ashes taps into esoteric theories about utilizing sexual vitality as a conduit for the collective unconscious and to power quantum magic, so the visual content material gets pretty over the leading at times… I mean, I escalated issues in the writing and then Anna just took it off the rails–she even shocked me with how far she took it. Walk Amongst Us had some Jung and Crowley, but we’re delving into it a great deal a lot more here–and when you dramatize that things and see the characters going through it… it can get fairly graphic,” said Pizzolo. “What’s intriguing is we really have a great deal much more flexibility to discover these themes in the comic book. When we do the illustrated film version, I have a feeling we’re gonna dial it back… partly due to the fact the threshold for transgressive art shifts wildly between comics & video and partly since video platforms have been getting truly conservative lately–iTunes has a various sensibility than Borders did.”
