First Details on Monster Town Comic Featuring Norman Reedus' Likeness
Miguel A. Insignares has announced that Norman Reedus ("The Walking Dead") will lend his likeness across all media for the action/horror property Monster Town. Insignares is the creator of the project and writer/artist of the upcoming Monster Town comic book.
From the Press Release:
Set in 1950's Arizona, Monster Town features Dexter Collins (Norman Reedus), an ex-con greaser who returns to his hometown after a ten-year absence. His attempt at reconciling with his old flame and estranged father are short lived after a mysterious meteorite transforms the local townspeople into ravenous mutated monsters. When the monsters attack, will the former outlaw be the town's saving grace or its ultimate demise? Monster Town will take you through the journey.
Insignares said, “Norman and I have been looking to collaborate for a while, and when I showed him the details and visual style of Monster Town, he immediately jumped on board. This project is a perfect fit for us and the action/horror fan. I am stoked to join forces with Norman, and we invite innovative companies who would like to translate Monster Town into other media such as television, film, animation, and game consoles to join us."
Reedus added, "I am excited to be a part of this project and to watch it grow."
To celebrate the announcement, a limited edition commemorative Monster Town 14" x 20" print featuring Norman Reedus as the monster masher, Dexter Collins, is now available at MonsterTownUSA.com and will be available while they last. In addition, each print will be hand-signed by Miguel A. Insignares, the artist and creator of Monster Town. Portions from this sale of this item will benefit The Hero Initiative, a non-profit dedicated to helping comic book creators in need.
The Monster Town commemorative print will ship out in October of 2012 while the official Monster Town comic book will be released in the fall of 2013. Norman Reedus will serve as associate producer through his Big Bald Head production company on all Monster Town multi-media projects.
