Hellbound V: End of Comics Marks the End of an Era
BOSTON, September 22 - The Boston Comics Roundtable, in conjunction with River Bird Comics, is pleased to announce the publication of Hellbound V: End of Comics. Aptly themed, this will be the final installment in a series of original horror comics anthologies from some of Boston’s most celebrated creators. No fear or phobia will be left unprovoked.
Debuting on October 4th at the fifth annual Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE), Hellbound V will also be available at select local comics shops and conventions. This limited edition, 9 by 5 inch, two-tone Risograph printed run, geared toward “Mature Readers”, will feature seven stories and two fold-out pages, boasting a roster of familiar names and new contributors, alike.
Hellbound series creator Roho will resume his role as designer and publisher. Stephen Cartisano, who has had a hand in every Hellbound release since the New England Art Award nominated Volume II: Box of Evil, returns as Editor. Returning contributors include Dan Mazur (Comics: A Global History), Ellen T. Crenshaw (Nobodies Volume II, Womanthology), Alison Burke and Tara Harris (A.R.R.O.), Patrick Flaherty, E.J. Barnes (Tales of the Ling, An Invitation to the World of Luisa Felix), and Clayton McCormack (Dead Meat, Heavy Metal Magazine). Joining them for the first time on this volume are Gary Bonesteel (Killer Ink Comics), Ben Doane (Subcultures), and Brenton Barnes (Bartkira, Mister Reusch’s Black and White Illustration Book).
The Hellbound series has received much critical acclaim, having grown “increasingly stylish in presentation,” according to Rob Clough of High-Low. Katy England, of The Maine Edge, deemed Volume IV: GULP! to be “well worth adding to any collection,” while Brigid Alverson of Robot 6 marveled at the “impressive craftsmanship” contained within its pages.
Featuring illustrations by Dan Moynihan (Nickelodeon Magazine, Heeby Jeeby Comix), and up and comer Jerel Dye(Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream, Pigs Might Fly), Hellbound V: End of Comics promises to end the series with a bang... and perhaps some whimpering, too.
