SPREAD keeps growing, new artwork revealed
August 18, 2014
Preview of the hit sci-fi series released
Justin Jordan (DEAD BODY ROAD, LUTHER STRODE) and Kyle Strahm’s (HACK/SLASH, HAUNT) SPREAD will up the stakes further in the third issue of the hit new sci-fi series about a nefarious viral growth that has almost completely taken over the world. The only light in the darkness comes from No, a man driven to protect a child who may hold the secret to fighting back against the spread. Standing in their way are marauders, bandits, disasters, and, of course, the lethal spread.
In issue #3, it’s chow time in Fat Jack's Cannibal Café and readers are invited.
Reprints of SPREAD #1 and #2 will be on shelves alongside this third issue on 9/10. Final order cutoff deadline for SPREAD #3 (Diamond Code JUL140576) is TODAY, 8/18.
Praise for SPREAD:
“A very good case for creepiest apocalypse ever.” —USA Today
“One read, and I'm infected. Spread gets under your skin in all the right ways. Read this now. Your eyeballs will thank you.” —Jason Aaron (SOUTHERN BASTARDS, Scalped, Thor God of Thunder, Wolverine & the X-Men)
“A.) A bio-morphic planetary spread B.) An ax swinging survivor named NO and C.) A red stained baby giggle'n in the snow speak'n squiggles... SOLD! SPREAD, Jordan & Strahm give me nothing but HOPE for the future of horror.” —Nathan Fox (Dogs of War, Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers, Fluorescent Black)
"...A dude armed with an axe & a baby fighting monsters with eyeballs that try to eat you. I love this comic. Strahm’s art is visceral and kinetic, you’ve never seen dead things drawn so alive.“ —Nick Pitarra (THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS)
"Kyle Strahm's art is so f***ing gross and awesome I couldn't wait to see what he was about to draw on the next page. I feel like I need to wash ink off my hands after reading this. Good stuff." —Skottie Young (Rocket Raccoon, Fortunately the Milk, Oz)
"Just when you think you know what kind of creepy-as-Hell story Jordan, Strahm, and Sobreiro are telling, they shift gears and bring you something that elevates Spread to epic levels of apocalyptic horror." —Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun, Helheim)
"A perfect fusion of everything great about 80s American horror with a Chanbara movie twist and a healthy respect for the fine art of sequential storytelling." —TIM SEELEY (REVIVAL, HACK/SLASH, Batman Eternal)
"Spread is a really good horror/action movie I get to be on the ground floor for and watch every month. Kyle Strahm's art is the best I've seen from him today. Wispy and and organic. Going from quiet to horribly disgusting in 0 to 60. Really excited to see where this goes." —Mike Norton (REVIVAL, Battlepug, The Answer)
"Tell me there’s a comic about a baby and her pet badass fighting to survive packs of degenerate cannibals and the world-eating gore virus that made them, you’ve got my interest. Tell me Kyle Strahm is drawing
the thing you’ve got my money. Kyle spits nightmares from the tip of his pen and Spread is the book he was born to draw." —Dennis Hopeless (Avengers Arena, Avengers Undercover, Cable and X-Force)
“Spread reminds me of watching horror movies in my parents' basement with a rowdy group of friends, a bag of Cheetos, and a case of beer that we found in the woods.” —Chris Burnham (NAMELESS, Batman Incorporated, Officer Downe)
