Take a Trip with DRUMHELLAR
Posted on May 1, 2014 by Jennifer de Guzman
First volume of the psychedelic new series lands this summer
Drum Hellar. There’s no mystic experience he won’t have. No drug he won’t take. No bog man he won’t dig up and revivify in an attempt to unravel the mystery of the significant look that a peacock gave him; a journey that will ultimately lead him, his invisible ghost friend Harold, and his werewolf ex-girlfriend to a dead cow in a field, which will lead them to… Well, “The mystery is the mystery of the mystery,” as the old farmer says.
You’re just going to have to read DRUMHELLAR VOLUME ONE: BADLANDS AND BAD TRIPS by Riley Rossmo and Alex Link (the creative team behind REBEL BLOOD) to find out just what the mystery of the mystery is. This summer, the cult hit from the Image Comics’ imprint Shadowline will take you on the trip of your life, with ghost triceratops, floating babies, and prison riots.
Link’s dialogue crackles and Rossmo’s riotous art merges reality with hallucination in a tale of exploration and discovery that Multiversity Comics called “Damn near perfect.” DRUMHELLAR VOLUME ONE will be in comic book stores on May 28 and in bookstores on June 10.

Praise for DRUMHELLAR:
“Drumhellar impressed us right out of the gate with its cheerful mix of humour, psychedelics and the paranormal.”
- Michelle White, Multiversity Comics
“Rossmo and Link are perfectly comfortable selling their world as is, and frankly the book is infinitely better for it. Maybe the answers are just lying around the corner, maybe they are far off, and maybe they don’t even exist. Whatever the context, Drumhellar concludes its first arc in a courageous and thought-provoking manner that is sure to leave you salivating for the second chapter.”
- Zac Thompson, Bloody Disgusting
“Link’s knack for realistic, humorous dialogue and Rossmo’s truly unique artistic style marry up perfectly here, creating a book that is truly like nothing else on the shelves.”
- Craig Neilson, Big Comic Page
