You heard it here first, folks, the Blackwood State comic book created by artist/writer Ivan O'Neill has been picked up by international publisher Pentian who will be working with POWkabam on a 3 issue mini-series!
As Samuel L. Jackson says in Jurassic Park: "Hold on to your butts."
News on the upcoming Blackwood State fall 2014 release of issue 1, the raucous October launch party at a certain con in New York, and details, details, details are all on the way soon.
This take on a young English-laden woman in college is hilarious, witty, and at times...just...wrong.
Follow Gwen Katz and all of her adventurous blasphemy here, as exclusive web comics will be forthcoming.
The first official publication of POWkabam will be a graphic novel by author/artist Ivan O'Neill titled Blackwood State, and it will be released in serialized form with four 24-25 page issues in the coming months of 2014.
O'Neill calls on a notorious state college and the life of a young lady struggling to live in a world that has no idea how not to crap on those that value the study of English writing. Alongside her fellow literary comrades, Guinevere Katz must attempt to keep her sanity and her grade as she survives one of the most obnoxious experiences of her academic career . . . and her professional career . . . and her life as a sentient being.
Calling on father Bill Shakespeare, as her god, and Falstaff as her inner muse and bartender, Gwen's deteriorative, drunken English career is a journey that seems perennially poised on the brink of disaster. Just how the hell does one make a living with a degree in English anyway?
