Official Press Release

When the apocalypse is canceled, the demon hordes of hell get angry in the pages of August's GOLLY, courtesy of THE DARKNESS' Phil Hester and rising star Brook Turner .

"Everything I've written to date has had a Frank Capra positivity to it, but GOLLY is sort of my dark side on display," said Hester. "Fans of books like PREACHER will be happy to see gratuitous swearing and inappropriate, gory humor return to comics. Everyone at Image is going to hell for this."

To combat the Devil's minions, Heaven chooses a dimwitted, kindhearted, foul-mouthed carnival ride repairman to wage war on any demonic forces bent on starting something come Judgment Day. This ongoing series details a world of rampaging were-hogs, obese goth vampires, muscle-bound beauty queens, and hell-fighting carnies. Slick back your mullet, change into your Sabbath t-shirt, and saddle up for a southern fried rock opera of horror the likes of which have never been seen.

GOLLY #1, a full color, 32-page ongoing series for $3.50, will be in-stores August 13th.
