“Some of the brightest talent I’ve seen in a long time, coming together to make something special. Exactly the kind of book the world needs.” -Josh Fialkov, writer Echoes, I, Vampire, Alpha
in SANITY, AZ is a twisted, 160-page graphic novel anthology featuring tales of a small town along a desert highway in Arizona. The inhabitants of this town are the castaways, looked at sideways by “normal” people that drive by, but here, in Sanity, they run the town.
This project is the brainchild of four creators: Mike Fountain, Marcel Losada, James Ninness and Joe Pezzula. None of them knows how to draw, so lucky for you, they’re working with eighteen of the best artists they know: Chris Burkheart, Courtney Camacho, Chris Collins, Collin Fogel, Kevin Gemser, Ben Glibert, Scott Irwin, Rich Kuhaupt, Frank Luna, John Narcomey, Donald Poquiz, Jorge Sevilla, Brian Soriano, Jed Soriano, Mike Temple, and Daniel Touchet. And we can’t forget the graceful colors of Shannon Forrey or the hard-hitting covers of Phoenix celebrity, “Big” Chris Wood.
Yup. It’s kind of an all-star crew.
“James Ninness, Joe Pezzula, Michael Drace Fountain, Marcel Losada and their team have spearheaded an eerie anthology which should appeal to fans of modern horror. This brand of macabre fills the void which is largely absent in spandex filled #comicmarket, and should be supported not only for its unique voice, but overall quality. Great efforts from a roster of fresh faces, I wonder who will become a household name creator first…” -Jimmy Jay, retailer/convention organizer Jay Co. Comics, Amazing Arizona Comic Con.
