KIDNAPPING KEVIN SMITH!
KIDNAPPING KEVIN SMITH- THE ALL NEW, EXCITING GRAPHIC NOVEL FROM CHAD BLAKELY!!
The brand new, original graphic novel, “Kidnapping Kevin Smith” is also the first publication from upstart comic imprint, pathetic aesthetic comics and from creator Chad Blakely!
The tale of two slacker comic book store employees (Ralph Norman and Jeff Lee), who have big dreams, but zero initiative or zero prospects. That all changes when Ralph; the “brains” of the operation, hatches a scheme to kidnap indy filmmaker Kevin Smith and force him to write a screenplay for them. Kind of a cross between the movies “Ruthless People” and “Misery”; with the foul mouthed comedy of Kevin Smith. Their plans take a turn for the worse (or better, depending on who’s side you’re on) when Kevin Smith contacts the outside world and alerts his fan base that he’s been abducted.
Produced by Chad Blakely, “Kidnapping Kevin Smith” is a new one shot graphic novel, being self published under Blakely’s own imprint pathetic aesthetic comics. Michael and Laura Allred (Madman; I, Zombie) produced the cover art for this graphic novel, capturing the sense of comedy and danger of the story.
“Kidnapping Kevin Smith” will be solicited in the June issue of Previews.
