August 8, 2016 – Denver, CO –
The hit horror graphic novel, The List, a 200-page graphic novel from Australia, is set to be unleashed in North America through Project-Nerd Publishing.It’s unlikely you’ve encountered any story quite like The List (Paul Bedford, script; Henry Pop, Pencils; Tom Bonin, Inks), but if comparisons are to be drawn, think works such as The Crow, Preacher, and the movie Seven.
“True horror needs no cheap-tricks, no jump-scares, no clichés to scare its audience. True horror sneaks its tendrils into your mind, subtly commandeering your psyche to bring its darkest reaches to the fore,” said creator Paul Bedford of his hit graphic novel. “The story comes at the reader like a waking nightmare; it is surreal and heavy with menace and dread.”
The List follows ‘The Son’ – the “New Commandments” tattooed down his torso – as he stalks the streets, plunging his city into a state of terror. The graphic novel is a relentless assault of suspense and horror, keeping readers guessing until its twist ending hurls the reader back through the story in the fashion ofThe Sixth Sense.
Fans that have experienced the book praised it extensively: “This must be the most disturbing graphic novel I’ve ever encountered…” and “I finished reading it today, and I can honestly say I have never read anything like it. It disturbed the f**k out of me! I have never felt so uncomfortable reading something before. And I mean this all in a good way!”
Critics have also loved The List, stating “The finale to The List was as harrowing a read as I expected from the set-up… Charged with a brutal, creative passion,The List is an unyielding, tenacious work that revels in immersing its audience in an orgy of uncomfortable, ghoulish voyeurism. Traumatic, disturbing, yet refreshingly honest, this is horror comics at their most unflinching.” (Andy Oliver,brokenfrontier.com).
Project-Nerd Publishing is excited to bring a full release of The List, with a limited engagement in the Fall of this year, and a full push in early 2017 featuring a new cover from world renown artist, Menton J. Matthews III.
The List is further proof that Project-Nerd Publishing’s goal of bringing a diverse collection of some of the most exciting and thrilling stories from around the world is in full force.
