For Immediate Release:
For Your Harvey Awards Consideration: Read Some New Kind of Slaughter for Free!
February 19, 2009 – Boston, MA. Some New Kind of Slaughter co-creator A. David Lewis is offering free access to issues #1 and #2 of the 2008 eco-epic mini-series at his website http://captionbox.net/harveys. These obligation-free viewings are tied to the recent release of the 2009 Harvey Awards ballot; Lewis is urging people who enjoyed the beginning of the series to consider nominating it for either “Best New Series” or “Best Limited Series.”
Lewis’s original collaboration with mpMann, The Lone and Level Sands (with Jennifer Rodgers), was nominated in 2006 for three Harvey Awards, including Best Graphic Novel. Since that time, Some New Kind of Slaughter has received praise from Entertainment Weekly garnering an “A-” and from Professor M. Thomas Inge (Comics as Culture) who said the series makes it “clear why the graphic novel is the literature of the future.”
Some New Kind of Slaughter concludes this June from Archaia.
