Halloween Issue of Alan Robert’s “Killogy” to feature Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein with Animated Series in Development
Horror Comic fans are very familiar with Alan Robert’s inventive, humorous, suspenseful and somewhat groundbreaking comic “Killogy.” The grand finale took home the award for year in the 2013 Comic Monsters Horror Comic Awards, as voted by fans. Well, if you couldn’t get enough of the comic, more is on the horizon for this crazy post apocalyptic New York world Roberts has created.
Ex-MISFITS horror-punk legend Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein will star in a special Halloween edition of “Killogy”, a comic book created, written and illustrated by LIFE OF AGONY’s Alan Robert and published by IDW Publishing The critically acclaimed “Killogy” graphic novel was originally released with characters based on celebrities Frank Vincent (“Goodfellas”, “Casino”, “The Sopranos”), Marky Ramone (Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee, RAMONES) and Brea Grant (“Heroes”, “Dexter”). The Halloween one-shot comic continues where the “Killogy” story left off and introduces new character, Doyle, as humanity’s last hope in a post-apocalyptic world flooded by an ocean of blood. The book will also feature a 10-page exclusive first-look at Robert’s forthcoming IDW series “The Shunned One”.
Additionally, award-winning executive producer/writer Rodney Barnes (“The Boondocks, Everybody Hates Chris”) has joined forces with Robert to develop an animated television series based on “Killogy”. Barnes and Robert will serve as executive producers on the series, with Barnes penning the screenplay for the pilot episode. Celebrities Frank Vincent, Marky Ramone and Brea Grant, who all appeared in the “Killogy” graphic novel, will now lend their voices to the show. Producers Chris White (“My Super Psycho Sweet 16” franchise) and Jeff Mazzola (“Descent”) are also on board.
“I’m happy to see the worlds Alan has created extend into new areas beyond comics,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s chief creative office/editor in chief. “His comic books are so visually intriguing and the characters he’s created so fully formed that they’ll translate really well into animation and other areas. But I’m also glad that he’s still doing more comics, and the ‘Killogy’ one-shot sounds like a perfectly dark treat for Halloween, too.”
