San Diego Comic-Con, birthplace of countless pop culture announcements, gave the Famous Monsters panel audience their first glimpse at what the latest Silver Scream Graphic Novel winners have in store!
Among the titles announced for American Gothic Press were Silver Scream 2017 Graphic Novel Script winner BLACK SUNDAY, 2018 Graphic Novel Script winner HAG, and 2018 Graphic Novel winner WHISPER IN THE WOODS.
2017 winner BLACK SUNDAY suffered delays due to the Northern California wildfires of October 2017, but now with artist Polychrome at the helm, Matt Dreiling’s haunting story about a farming family during the Great Depression has come to stark life in black and white. HAG and WHISPER IN THE WOODS both made a splash with the judging panel this year, and WHISPER IN THE WOODS will debut in the Famous Monsters 2018 Annual as a 12-page short story before being completed as an original graphic novel in early 2019. Chad Stroup’s HAG found its artist in previous Silver Scream winner Jon Clark (THIN), making the horror scribe and artist a true double threat in every sense of the word!
Concept art for each of the aforementioned titles can be found below. Silver Scream was founded on the idea of accepting graphic novel submissions due to the increasingly direct link between existing IP and developed screenplays.
