[ENGLISH] Devil’s Due tells us: Chicago, IL. (June 18, 2008) – The lines between history and conspiracy will blur this August as Devil’s Due presents the all new original graphic novel Serpo in collaboration with Invisible Hand Studios (Urban Monsters) and executive producer Vin Di Bona. Combining rumors, purported U.S. government files, and first-hand accounts, Serpo will unveil a shocking story of 12 Americans taken to live on an alien planet. « If you’re a conspiracy or black ops believer, Serpo will knock your socks off and even make you question your mother for the truth! » says Di Bona.
Scripted by critically acclaimed writer Jason Burns (A Dummy’s Guide to Danger, The Expendable One) and drawn by artist Joe Eisma (A Dummy’s Guide to Danger), Serpo combines the scale and suspense of Close Encounters with the controversy and government suppression of The X-Files.
« Working on Serpo was a really unique experience for me as a writer because, unlike other adaptations, this one being based on fact or fiction is still unresolved, » states Burns. « Conversely, it’s also a unique story for the reader because it challenges them to make up their own minds as to whether or not they believe the events actually took place. »
The 120-page graphic novel will also include a dynamic cover by artist Roger Robinson (Batman, Azrael). More details will be available from DDP this July at San Diego Comic-Con.
