Ted Naifeh’s Superhero Comic to be Published by Space Goat

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Ted Naifeh’s Superhero Comic to be Published by Space Goat Titled Heroines, Upcoming Comic will Tackle Superhero Tropes (January 20th, 2016 – Bellingham, WA) –  Space Goat Productions is proud to announce they will be publishing Ted Naifeh’s upcoming superhero comic book: Heroines. The celebrated author behind Courtney Crumrin, Princess Ugg, and Night’s Dominion will be bringing his take on modern superheroes. Would-be superhero Marcy Madison tries to assemble a team of like-minded heroines by placing an ad on Craigslist. But the response she gets is far weirder and more dangerous than she bargained for. A jaded veteran superheroine, a disgruntled henchwoman, and a likely insane ninja assassin answer the call—and things get even stranger from there. “Nothing brings me more joy as a fan than reading a book by Ted,” stated publisher Shon Bury. “Working with Ted on his first modern superhero book is a dream come true.” “I’ve been wanting to tell a superhero story like Heroines for years, and I’m beside myself with joy to get the chance,” said comic creator Ted Naifeh. “Space Goat has been an amazingly supportive and enthusiastic partner. And my editor, Brendan Wright, is committed to making this a top-quality comic book. I can’t wait to get it out in front of the people.” “Ted has been ahead of his time for years,” said Heroines’ editor Brendan Wright. “Now that comics is finally starting to catch up, Heroines is the perfect story for this moment, but still smarter and funnier than anyone else can pull off.” The 7-issue comic book mini-series Heroines is scheduled to be released in...

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...
