Blake Northcott’s “Everglade Angels” sells out; new printing coming in April from Scout Comics
On Monday, independent comic book creator Blake Northcott announced that her horror graphic novel Everglade Angels is completely sold out via the book’s in-demand store, which is now officially closed.
However, if you missed out on Everglade Angels and still want to pick it up, there’s good news. The book will be split into separate issues and sold piecemeal through your local comic shop thanks to publisher Scout Comics.
Written by Scott Lobdell (X-Men) and featuring artwork by Roc Upchurch, Everglade Angels is a 48-page murder mystery set in the Florida Everglades for mature audiences only.
Here’s the full plot synopsis taken from the book’s Previews page:
A wrong turn down a dead end road. A car that won’t start. An unspeakable evil emerges from the darkness. No phones. No weapons. No escape. Think you’ve seen this all before? Think again. When a girls softball team takes a shortcut through the Florida Everglades, they veer off the path towards a night they’ll never forget – drinking, dancing – one last hurrah before college starts and they go their separate ways. When they stumble into a trap set by a murderous cult, the stage is set for a night of blood-soaked carnage, but the cult has never dealt with victims who are ready to fight back.
Issue #1 of Everglade Angels is scheduled to arrive at comic book stores on 15 April (tax day=terrifying!), at the wallet-friendly price of $3.99.
