Devil’s Due Taken Over by Spooks

Press Release

SPOOKS is the name of a secret branch of the government that guards humanity from things that go bump in the night, and when the king of all vampires allies with the deadliest of witches, it unleashes an invasion of classic monsters on Washington DC, calling the SPOOKS team into action.

Devil’s Due will publish the comic book as a four issue miniseries in early to mid 2008. The concept, created by Ryan Schifrin (director of the cult horror hit Abominable) and Daniel Alter ( producer: Hitman) has been in the works for two years. When legendary fantasy author RA Salvatore (Forgotten Realms, DemonWars) and Larry Hama (G.I.Joe, Wolverine) came on board it was all the series needed.

“This series is going to be a blast,” says DDP President Josh Blaylock. “Larry is developing the SPOOKS agents, adding a decidedly realistic military element to the organization while Salvatore is focusing on the monsters. Honestly, can it get any better than that?”

“This is epic fantasy, but instead of castles and dragons it’s Halloween iconography – vampires, witches, werewolves and the Headless Horseman,” said Schifrin “I think of it as GI JOE meets Monster Squad, but with massive Lord of the Rings style battles.”

“Spooks is the ultimate double entendre,” adds Alter. ” It’s about a covert unit in the government, only their pervue isn’t terrorism or drugs or weapons trafficking. Its things that go bump in the night!”

When asked about the unique military influences of SPOOKS Larry Hama replied, “Have you ever wondered what happens when you hit a vampire with a high-velocity discarding-sabot anti-tank round that has an ash-wood stake core-penetrator instead of depleted uranium?” Maybe you haven’t, but Larry has!

Look for Devil’s Due at booth 2415 at the 2007 San Diego Comic-Con International!
