Nothing Strange About DRUMHELLAR #1 Selling Out
Posted on November 11, 2013 by Ron Richards
Bog-men, werewolves, and demons collide in this psychedelic mystery
Warning: things are about to get very strange—even for paranormal detective Drum Hellar. When Hellar starts experiencing shock-induced visions, he’s compelled to pay a visit to a small town in South Dakota. But what he’s met with is not your usual South Dakotan. Flesh-eating bog-men, ex-girlfriend werewolves, and a psychedelic-stealing demon abound in this wonderfully weird new series from creators Alex Link and Riley Rossmo (WILD CHILDREN and COWBOY NINJA VIKING).
Debuting just last week, DRUMHELLAR #1 has sold out at the distributor level and will be going back to press for a second printing to meet demand. Rave reviews include:
“Drumhellar proves that comics can do things other mediums can't. It crosses multiple genres in a spacious world that teems with imagination and care from the creators. I have no idea where Link and Rossmo are going to take us, but you can bet I’ll be along for the ride.” —Lonmonster, Bloody Disgusting
“Drumhellar #1 doesn’t disappoint, especially not to fans of Rossmo. It’s a strange, winding story with a cast quite unlike any other. The well-placed jokes and comedic situations only make it even better. Definitely worth a read.” —Leo Johnson, NerdSpan
“Rossmo’s art, as with anything he does, shines the brightest because he really lets himself go and just does the story the way he wants it. From his cleaner lines in the more normal scenes, to the uber colorful and crazy out of body experience that Drum has towards the end of the book, this book is Rossmo at his finest.” —Tyler Goulet, All-Comic.com
“This is one you can read a couple of times and get something new out of it. Well done guys, well done.” —James Anders II, Comic Bastards
“Alex and Riley have penned a funny and engaging mystery that rapidly opens up and pulls you in.” —Hansel Moreno, The Weekly Crisis
Join in on this otherworldly mystery. DRUMHELLAR #1 is available in stores now for $3.50. It is also available digitally on the Image website (imagecomics.com) and the official Image Comics iOS app, as well as on Comixology on the web (comixology.com), iOS, and Android.
