Official Press Release

Silent Devil, a Los Angeles based production company, is proud to

announce the 2-part graphic novel series Astronaut Dad. Written by

Karma Incorporated creator David Hopkins with art by Horrorwood's

Brent Schoonover, Astronaut Dad follows three NASA families in

Houston, Texas during the boom years of the space race.

"This is one project I couldn't turn down," says Silent Devil

co-founder Christian Beranek. "David Hopkins has done great work with

SD before on Antigone and Brent's artwork is amazing. This series

represents the future of the medium, being that original graphic

novels are quickly becoming a widely embraced form of mass


"I write about families in crisis," says co-creator David Hopkins.

"Astronaut Dad is my most personal work and, by far, the most

challenging. It's gone through numerous

re-writes. But now, I look at the script, I'm confident readers will

get something truly honest and unique."

"Although our new focus is on film, tv and other media, Silent Devil was

always known in the past as a publisher," says co-founder Adam

Beranek. "Astronaut Dad is a book we believe in and we're happy to be

on board -- as they say, the engines are prepped and ready to launch!"

Astronaut Dad Volume 1 is set for a late October Release. Volume 2

will follow in Summer 2008.
