Skeeters: Extraterrestrial Creatures Invade Mad Cave This Holiday With Upcoming Series
Mad Cave Studios has announced the upcoming release of their horror/sci-fi series, SKEETERS. The new series comes from the talented Ringo Award-nominated writing duo of Kevin Cuffe and Bob Frantz. They are joined by artist Kelly Williams with Chas! Pangburn editing and lettering.
Set in a peaceful beach town, SKEETERS follows the chaotic events that unfold when otherworldly mosquito-like creatures invade the community. With their small town turned upside down, it’s up to a determined sheriff and two eccentric exterminators to save the day. Combining comedy and gore, this series is a treat for fans of creature features like Slither and Arachnophobia.
Kevin Cuffe shares:
“When Bob and I started this story, we aimed to create a humorous parody of B-movies. Little did we know that with the exceptional artwork of Kelly Williams, SKEETERS would become an A-plus comic. Kelly’s pages are filled with gross yet beautiful imagery, perfectly capturing the essence of swampy Kankakee county at sunset.”
Bob Frantz expresses his passion for SKEETERS, saying:
“This series is my tribute to the wonderfully cheesy creature features that I adore. Kevin and I crafted an enjoyable script, but it’s the breathtaking artwork of Kelly that truly brings it to life. Each page is brimming with visceral gore that leaps off the page. It’s a match made in horror heaven.”
Kelly Williams adds:
“I can’t wait for readers to experience this exploration of the human condition, the condition of being torn apart by giant bug things! Working on this book was an absolute blast. Kevin and Bob’s script deserves to be celebrated alongside iconic movies like THEM, MOSQUITO, and THE FLY.”
No amount of Off! can prepare you from being captivated by the hilarious and gruesome world of SKEETERS, a comic that will undoubtedly be a standout by bringing inspiration from two severely underrated films like Slither and Eight Legged Freaks.
SKEETERS #1 is now available for preorder only on the Mad Cave Studios website, and be available at your favorite local comic shops on December 6, 2023.
