Get ready to rock out with Terminal Punks, a new series from Mad Cave Studios set to debut in November. First announced during the Mad Cave Studios 2020 Showcase, the series is written by Matthew Erman, illustrated by Shelby Criswell, and lettered by Micah Myers. Check out a sneak peek at the debut issue below.
Writer Matthew Erman says:
Terminal Punks is my dream-come-true mash-up of Green Room and Godzilla. Making a book like this is punk fever dream come true. It’s unabashedly us and that’s so cool and important in telling the stories you want to tell. Mad Cave and Chris [Sanchez] gave Shelby and I so much freedom and trust to make this series come to life and I couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve come done. And boy oh boy did we do something. It’s got punks, monsters, and a mandatory quarantine so, it feels kind of timely as well. I hope you all enjoy this thing.
Terminal Punks follows four lousy, grimy, and greasy gutter punk teens as they head to their big show in the Big Apple. Things don’t go quite as planned. Instead of typical problems that face young bands, these folks encounter mutant animals unleashed in the airport. Our four punk heroes have to put on their combat boots, fly their Black Flag, and do everything they can to survive a viral genetic mutant nightmare.
Artist Shelby Criswell added:
Never did I expect that a comic this rad would end up in my lap! The incredible writing skills of Matthew combined with the openness of our editor, Chris Sanchez, made my job so incredibly easy. This comic has almost everything I love, from monsters and punk kids to plenty of band references. It’s been a privilege to work with a team that allowed me to provide my input on these kids’ lives, looks, and identities. This comic is a must in your pull list.
Terminal Punks #1 is set for release on November 11th, 2020.
