TAKE A TRIP TO CAMP MIDNIGHT IN APRIL
I never went to sleepaway camp so that might say a lot about me as a person. Skye was forced to go there, but she has a different set of problems as she ended up in the wrong camp. No, this isn't one located on scenic Crystal Lake. It's one for monsters. That is a bit of an issue as she's one of the only humans in the bunch. That's the setup for Camp Midnight, an upcoming all ages graphic novel from writer Steven T. Seagle and artist Jason Adam Katzenstein, slated for release in April 2016 from Image Comics.
“When we first announced Camp Midnight at Image Expo we were expecting it to be a fun all-ages book that retailers would latch onto for the Halloween holiday, but we didn’t anticipate the level of early enthusiasm we’d receive from the mass market as well. In favor of giving Camp Midnight more time to find this wider audience we’ve decided to reposition the book for Spring 2016 and look forward to seeing this title thrive,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics.
Camp Midnight follows Skye as she reluctantly attends camp, dead-set on not fitting in to spite her “step monster.” This isn't a problem as her and her new friend Mia are the only humans there. Everyone else is a full-fledged monster. Now Skye must keep her identity a secret until she can catch a bus back home. Could all this be a figment of her imagination?
“Camp Midnight is a horror comedy about feeling like a weirdo—and who doesn't feel like a weirdo now and then?” said Katzenstein. “I'm excited that we made something for comics geeks and new readers alike, and that with this push for a wider release we can find both of those audiences.”
Seagle added: “I've worked for years on comics and graphic novels that are decidedly not for younger readers, so I'm thrilled that in Camp Midnight I have a book that I can hand to my younger fans of Ben 10 and Big Hero 6 right up to people who enjoyed House of Secrets. Jason is a major new cartooning force, and this is going to be a stellar debut for him.”
Camp Midnight sounds like a really fun book and something I'm looking forward to in a big way now. I'm always looking for good all ages comics to share with my kids, especially horror ones. Look for it at comic book stores on April 6th, 2016 and in book stores on April 14th, 2016.
