Release Party Rundown, Fangoria Interview and More Reviews!

It’s been a crazy week here at FREAKSHOW HQ as we’ve been celebrating the release of the book, with exciting developments on several fronts!

First up, intrepid reporter Nicole Sixx of Comic Booked joined us at Golden Apple Comics this past Saturday for our release party blowout. To say it was a once in a lifetime experience still wouldn’t do it justice – so we’ll let Nicole fill you in on the details! Click here to read her Comic Booked Exclusive Report, including photos and a two-part video interview with co-writers David Server & Jackson Lanzing and artist Joe Suitor!

Next, following their rave review of FREAKSHOW #1, Fangoria has posted an interview with series co-creators David Server and Jackson Lanzing, discussing the horror genre’s influence on the series, character designs and future plans! Click here to read the full piece.

And finally, we’ve had more positive reviews flooding in – here are some excerpts!

The Cedar Rapids Comic Books Examiner: The writing team of David Server and Jackson Lanzing put together a cleverly crafted 48 page opener to their three issue series... With beautiful rendered art by Joe Suitor, the team creates an interesting super-powered world without any clear cut good guys and bad guys. Their world exists solely in shades of gray, much like the smoke that surrounds its setting. Did I mention it was 48 pages, in color, for only $3.99? That’s one of the best deals in comics today.”

Comic Book Resources: “Server and Lanzing are obviously setting up the heroes and villains, with Critter wondering if the “freaks” really need to live out in the wasteland and kill anyone who ventures near them…Meanwhile, Suitor’s art is quite good… The “freaks” of the title are neat-looking, and there’s some nice horror touches that make the book a bit scarier.”

Brutal As Hell: This is the kind of comic that comic fans crave…The storytelling in this book is fantastic. This first issue sets everything up with a great premise, and it leaves doors open for a ton of great potential reveals to come…Server and Lanzing’s writing is pitch perfect. They’ve created a unique world here populated by some incredibly interesting characters…Let’s not forget the art work on display here, though. Joe Suitor’s pencils and coloring perfectly define this bleak world, a world full of action, perverse monstrosities, and seeping atmosphere at every corner.”

Once again, we are incredibly excited to see our world and characters catching on with readers. Thanks to everyone for the support! More updates to come!
