SASQUATCH, ALIENS, AND DOOMSDAY CULTS ABOUND AS STRANGE NATION COMES TO PRINT
I've seen those tabloid magazines for years and never gave them much credit. Sure, reading about the infamous Bat Boy was a must, but they weren't real...right? Journalist Norma Park is about to find out for sure. She lost her job at a prestigious newspaper after uncovering a conspiracy involving aliens, Sasquatch, and doomsday cults. Now she's stuck working for the tabloid Strange Nation and spreading the truth through it's pages. This all sounds pretty cool, right?
Strange Nation is the latest digital-first series from Monkeybrain Comics that is getting the print treatment thanks to IDW Publishing. The comic is written by Paul Allor and illustrated by Juan Romera. It joins the likes of D4VE and Headspace, which both made similar jumps from digital to print. What's unclear from the press release is whether Strange Nation will be serialized like D4VE or collected in a graphic novel like Headspace.
“Strange Nation is a book about the search for truth, and how much you're willing to sacrifice for it. But, you know, in a fun way,” said Allor. “Juan and I were so proud to put Strange Nation out through Monkeybrain Comics, and are absolutely thrilled that the print edition has found a home at IDW, a publisher known for awesome and inventive comics that combine genre action with true heart.”
"Strange Nation is one of the best comics of the year,” says Ryan Ferrier, writer of D4VE. “Paul and Juan have managed to weave the perfect blend of emotion, intrigue, and excitement into a tale of suspense; one that explores both true humanity, and the great unknown. Pulse-pounding on every page, and a true measure of storytelling within the comics medium."
Look for Strange Nation at your local comic shop in August. If you don't feel like waiting that long, you can buy it digitally right now.
