Media Release — Rock is back from the dead, as indie author Terry Cronin contributes a double-sized zombie story to the new Indie Comics Magazine #2, scheduled for preorder in Diamond Comic Distributors’ February 2011 Previews catalog and available ONLY through Previews. The done-in-one tale features the band Recalcitrant Jones and the Deadbeats from Cronin’s popular Students of the Unusual comic series, announced Indie Comics Magazine Editor Gary Scott Beatty.
“Throughout the years in Students of the Unusual, Terry has proven himself to be a versatile short story writer, a skill sadly lacking in many of today’s comic books,” said Beatty. “When he sets out to write comedy, like in the Recalcitrant Jones and the Deadbeats stories, Terry strikes the right chord.”
Film producer and director, dermatologist and film festival program director Terry Cronin fills his Students of the Unusual comic series with horror tales based on the myths, legends and history of his home state of Florida. “Terry knows how to misdirect readers so plot twists are real surprises,” said Beatty. “That technique works well in straight up horror, fantasy or comedy.”
Art in the Indie Comic Magazine tale is supplied by Steve Mack. His retro cartoon style is well suited to a story about a super group of dead rockers.
Terry joined forces with Pat Martin, Jeff Hall and Bob Lizek to create 3 Boys Productions, responsible for the annual Melbourne Independent Filmmakers Festival. The team is now producing Adventure Chefs, a reality show where contestants hunt, forage and gather food to prepare fine dining for judges. Terry’s new Skinvestigator books follow the murder investigations of dermatologist Doctor Harry Poe.
Each issue of Indie Comics Magazine will feature full stories from many independent comic book creators, said Beatty. Short biographies and contact information are included so readers can easily seek out more of the creators’ work. Terry Cronin books can be bought at http://StudentsOfTheUnusual.com.
