“The path to paradise begins in hell…”
As legend has it, monsters such as Vampires, Werewolves, and Zombies
once roamed the face of the earth but were banished to Hell for their
unspeakable acts on humanity. Now in the depths of Dante’s vision of Hell, Satan holds a race once a millennium, a race unknown to man called The Showdown. Creatures from all walks of existence challenge one another in this death match exhibition of fantastic horror and campy grindhouse.
THE SHOWDOWN is a comic series set in the depths of the Netherworld with full-color illustrations. Think of a modern day, The Wild Ones meets Dante’s Inferno in comic form – packed with action, suspense, and visually stunning depictions of monsters and hot-rods. THE SHOWDOWN is not just for the average comic book reader, but will reach out to the rebels, greasers, rockabilly, punks, rock n’ rollers, motorcycle, and car enthusiasts alike. All will rejoice in the anti-superhero plot line that represents the fifties loss of innocence, captured in stylist surrealism art.
Created and written by novelist, Russ Lippitt (Lion’s Share) and illustrated by Tony Guaraldi-Brown (The Final Plague)
