Official Press Release
Film maker, Michael Kutcher debuts his first stint into the comic book world this April with “The Claw and Fang.”
Kutcher is new to creating comics, driven by his experience working on two feature films, “Bulletface” directed by Albert Pyun and “Kung Fu Joe” directed by Glen Berry, he wanted to move away from the production process over to the creative side. Matias Basla draws the gritty series “The Claw and The Fang” with covers by Dan Brereton, GMB Chomichuk and Steve Babb.
“The Claw and Fang” is a modern action drama with gothic horror elements. The characters are pulled from many of Kutcher's real life experiences and that personal relationship adds greatly to the story.
The four-issue story arch begins in the present with Justin, a 21-year old warehouse worker, who has given up on life in the real world choosing to live in a virtual one where he is a natural leader. Other important characters are Noro, a demon summoned back to Earth after being banished to the Darkness for thousands of years; and the Firewoman, the last shaman of the old ways who forces Justin to confront his destiny and save us all.
“The Claw and Fang” will be released as a four book series through Bluewater starting in April 2010. Attached is the Brereton cover and sample pages from the book.
