Space Goat Announces Backpack Editions

Space Goat Announces Backpack Editions

(January 31th, 2017 – Bellingham, WA) –  Publisher Space Goat Productions has announced a new line of Backpack Edition comic books. Perfect-bound, at 9” x 6”, the graphic novels are small enough to fit in backpacks, messenger bags, and purses, while still being durable enough for travel. Perfect for readers on the go. Most books will be available digitally on Amazon and Comixology well in advance of physical publication.   “Going straight to graphic novel after serializing digitally first has been a dream of mine since at least 2005,” stated Publisher Shon Bury. “Our partnership with Amazon and Comixology, along with competitive domestic printing sources, has made that dream a reality.”   The line will launch with two new series: Moonlighters and Uncanny Valley High. Both are available for pre-order on Comixology today.   Moonlighters features broke college-age werewolves taking supernatural odd jobs to pay the rent. Written by Katie Schenkel (writer at Comics Alliance, The Mary Sue, Panels, and the upcoming graphic novel The Cardboard Kingdom) and illustrated by Cal Moray (Monster Elementary). They are monster helpers for hire.   “I’m excited for the opportunity to build the world these characters exist in between the mundane and the supernatural,” said series illustrator Cal Moray. “But not gonna lie, I’m mostly excited to draw corgis.” Series writer Katie Schenkel said, “Writing these cute queer werewolves being friends and getting into shenanigans has been a dream so far. I really think Moonlighters is going to be special.”   Uncanny Valley High is about a high school in a (poorly rendered) computer simulation dealing with all of the glitchy hijinks that...

The Howling™ Comic and Board Game Rights Acquired by Space Goat

NYT Best-Selling Author Micky Neilson Scripting (December 13th, 2016 – Bellingham, WA) –  Space Goat Productions, in partnership with Studiocanal and Creative Licensing, has announced they will be producing a 4-issue comic book miniseries and board game based on the 1981 Joe Dante classic horror film, “The Howling.” The comic book series will be written by two-time New York Times best-selling author & former  Blizzard Entertainment lead writer Micky Neilson. “I can’t even tell you how excited I am to write The Howling comic book! I saw the movie when I was seventeen. It opened an entirely new window into werewolf mythology and left a lifelong impression that influences me to this day,” said Micky Neilson. “If I could choose any license to work on, The Howling is right there at the top of the list. It still stands as my favorite all-time werewolf film. I’ve been obsessed with werewolves ever since the first time I saw it.” “Micky’s enthusiasm is contagious,” said Space Goat’s Founder and President Shon Bury. “There is a complete dearth of quality werewolf stories on the market. Exploring the lore of ‘The Howling’ with a writer of Micky’s caliber is going to be a joy ride. Werewolf fans are going to love it.” Line art for the comic book series will be provided by industry veteran Jason Johnson, who has worked on fan-favorite books like Wetworks, Gen13, and Knight Rider. “I have always had a major fascination with werewolves!” said Jason Johnson. “They were by far the most fearsome of monsters. I will bring this story to life like only a true werewolf connoisseur...
