Having spent the last 4 million years as an outcast, the Devil has had enough! Tired of his role, and with no desire to act as God's Adversary any longer, he confesses to a priest that he wants to die!

This summer a truly unique tale will hit comic stores. Written by Chris McCay and illustrated by Lee O'Connor, Warpton Comics pushes the boundaries of comics with The Confessional.

Chris McCay takes us through a world that we all know, but for the first time tells the story of the true reason the Devil has become the lonesome and loathsome figure he is depicted as. It is a tale of insight, intrigue and decisions. Decisions that could and do change lives.

Having spent the last 4 million years as an outcast, the Devil has had enough! He has no desire to act as God's Adversary any longer and confesses his intentions to a Priest, what else would you do? He longs to return to his home after having being banished for all eternity; painted as the ultimate evil - a role thrust upon him by his "creator"; supported by Mankind's need for a counter to God's good deeds. Hypocritical as Mankind itself has taken on the role of God's Adversary.

"Throughout history I have been painted as the greatest evil in existence. No one cared to find out if this representation was correct," states the Devil. "I was portrayed as evil as humanity is too hypocritical to admit

the truth." The truth that is revealed in Confessional is that mankind is the ultimate evil not the devil.

Confessional is a 40 page one-shot in stunning full colour, being distributed via Diamond Comics, in the July edition of their Previews Magazine.

"This is an exiting story that shows you can be completely unique with a tried and tested idea," exclaims Steve Causer, co-founder of Warpton Comics. "As soon as I read the script I knew this had to be made.

"If you want to know why the Devil wants to die then get this book, I have read it and am hooked, it epitomises the classic story in a one book that comics is all about."

Confessional is available to order from any comic book store from July or direct from the Warpton website at www.warpton.com.
