creator can tell you their best characters take on a life of their own,
and SPLATTERMAN shows how it can happen in the most frightening of

is the blood soaked story of two comic creators and their ultimate
horror character creation gone very bad. After receiving the publishing
deal they’ve long sought after, they soon find a strong enough

graphic novella that truly lives up to its title, Palmiotti, Gray and
Caracuzzo are joined by WANTED’s Paul Mounts, letterer Bill Tortolini

a 72-page full color with a cover price of .99, will be available for
order in the February issue of Previews and goes on sale April 28.
