Last year, we got the first issue of True Believers, a grisly comic book mini-series co-written by bestselling Bram Stoker Award-winner Stephen Graham Jones and Denver Post bestselling writer Joshua Viola. We were introduced to a new kind of slasher villain, all set at the Colorado Festival of Horror, in the first issue, and now, we’re getting a new story in this terrifying universe. Who is terrorizing the con this year? Could it be one of the famous guests…?

In True Believers #2,

“A year has passed since the harrowing events of issue 1, which introduced readers to the bone-chilling slasher character, Killr™. Now a mysterious new figure emerges, adopting the enigmatic Killr™ persona—but is it just another obsessive fan or a new threat on the horizon? Brace yourself for a rollercoaster of suspense and humor with a fresh ensemble of characters.”

And that ensemble includes some of the most well-known names and faces in the horror genre, such as Jeffrey Reddick, the creator of the Final Destination franchise. We’re excited to exclusively reveal the artwork for his cameo appearance!

Artist Ben Matsuya captures Reddick’s smile and personality beautifully even just in this teaser image. We can’t wait to see what happens to Reddick on the convention floor… Devon Sawa (also of Final Destination fame) and Matthew Kiichi Heafy (guitarist and vocalist for Trivium) will also appear in True Believers #2.

“Nothing better than being at a horror convention, and the Colorado Festival of Horror does it right,” said Stephen Graham Jones. “Only thing better might be . . . I don’t know. Maybe being there and feeling like you’re walking through the panels of a slasher comic book?”
