Award-winning graphic novel publisher Archaia Entertainment has announced a November release for the highly anticipated graphic novel Everlast, written by television and film actor Chad Michael Murray (“One Tree Hill”, The Haunting in Georgia); however, if you’re attending this coming weekend’s New York Comic Con, you can snag an early copy … signed by Murray himself!
From the Press Release:
A pre-apocalyptic tale, Everlast (paper-over-board hardcover, 104 pp) follows Derek Everlast, a man whose destiny in life is guiding others to a place of rebirth for mankind called Haven. Following an instinct called the Nudge, bestowed on him by a higher power, Derek is guided to the next chosen human destined to survive, a little girl named Melissa. In a harrowing adventure, he must deliver her safely to Haven before the End of Days. Everlast tells a story of choice, love, friendship, and, most of all, survival. The graphic novel is illustrated by several of the most talented artists in the industry, including Trevor Hairsine (X-Men), Andrew Huerta (Batman Beyond), Robbi Rodriguez (Moon Lake), J.K. Woodward (Fallen Angel), and Danijel Zezelj (Luna Park).
Creator Chad Michael Murray is best known for his role as Lucas Scott in the hit television series “One Tree Hill”. Murray will be appearing at New York Comic Con (October 14-15) and is preparing a signing tour nationwide with the first stop at the Barnes & Noble on the Upper East Side in New York City on Friday, October 14, at 7:00 pm (150 East 86th Street, New York).
“Everlast has been a passion project of mine for eight years now,” Chad states. “Every aspect of creating this world and journey has been incredible. I’ve been fortunate to learn from great people along the way and sought help from top artists to bring in the visuals we use to tell this story. Here’s to an adventure I can’t wait for the fans to embark on and hopefully hold onto as much as I do.”
“Phoenix”, an exclusive, supplemental short story to Everlast written by Murray and illustrated by Woodward, is available for free download now on Chad Michael Murray’s official website.
