From the creator of HARRIET TUBMAN: DEMON SLAYER comes the first issue of NIGHTMARE IN NEWARK the 80-page KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE!
‘Nightmare in Newark’ is a 75-page graphic novel that will be the first installment in an epic series of supernatural adventures from David Crownson’s Kingwood Comics. The series follows Zoe Alvarez America’s newest top playwright. Unfortunately, a disgruntled, spoiled actress is planning to release Zoe’s biggest secret if she doesn’t get what she wants. Under the threat of blackmail, Zoe decides to tell her secret on her own terms. She musters the courage to finally come out to her conservative family at Thanksgiving dinner… but a catastrophic alien invasion interrupts. The comedy and pacing of Friday (1995) + Shaun of the Dead (2004) meet the high stakes of Cloverfield (2008).
‘Nightmare in Newark’ is written and created by New Jersey native David Crownson. David grew up with a passion for storytelling which began with comics and film. His passion has served him as an actor and as the writer/creator of Harriet Tubman: Demon Slayer, published by his company Kingwood Comics. This best-selling comic is soon to become a television series produced by Prentice Penny.
Joining David on this venture is illustrator Brett “BlitzCadet” Parson, a Massachusetts-based cartoonist. He is best known for his work on multiple Tank Girl titles with original writer and co-creator Alan Martin. He has also worked with DC/Vertigo, Boom!, 2000 AD, Albatross Funny Books, Warner Bros. Animation, DreamWorks TV, Sony Music, and more. When not drawing comics, Brett is hanging out with his family, eating pizza, and working on their old house.
