From the website:
“SHOOK! A BLACK HORROR ANTHOLOGY is a 160 page graphic novel comprised of tales of horror, sci-fi, and suspense from a collection of a few of the most talented African American writers in the comic book industry. Dubbed “The Dream Team”, these creators represent black excellence in the horror genre.”
“The project represents a long discussed collaboration between CEO Bradley Golden and COO Marcus H. Roberts of Second Sight Publishing, LLC and Professor John Jennings of John Jennings Studio LLC. Stemming from a love of horror; specifically what is referred to as Southern Gothic horror by Jennings, the companies wanted to come together and tell engrossing stories, and also bring along what they felt was some of the great talent already burning up the horror scene. This anthology boasts a cadre of award winning or nominated writers representing awards such as the Will Eisner Awards, the Ringo Awards, the Hugo Awards, and is the largest collection of Glyph Comics Awards winners and nominees in a single publication. The volume even includes prestigious television and film awards such as the American Film Institute Award and the Writer’s Guild of America. So, sit back and follow us on this journey of terror, suspense, nightmares, and the darkest depths of FEAR!!!!”
