Source Point Press has announced the release date of the graphic novel “Holliston: Friendship is Tragic” will be October 26th and has opened up pre-orders for both readers and retailers. The massive fanbase of the comedy/horror sitcom TV series Holliston, created by Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen, Digging Up the Marrow), were thrilled when Entertainment Weekly announced that the fan-favorite TV show would be returning! But what can the fans do while they’re waiting for more Holliston episodes? They can read this brand new Halloween adventure featuring Adam Green’s beloved characters in their first graphic novel, Holliston: Friendship is Tragic!
Down on their luck wannabe filmmakers Adam and Joe want desperately to celebrate Halloween to the fullest, but their wallets say otherwise. When Adam finds a pre-paid credit card loaded with money, he decides to buy gifts for his friends Joe, Laura, and Corri from a mysterious shop full of rare items. Little does he know the card carried a terrible curse; one that will not only tear apart their friendships, but tear apart all of Holliston! Loaded with laughs, guest appearances, and horror movie references that fans of the show or just fans of great comics will all enjoy! Written by Greg Wright (Monstrous, Wild Bullets), edited by Travis McIntire (Up the River, Bayani and the Nine Daughters of the Moon), with pencils and Inks by Stephen Sharar (Up the River, Wild Bullets), and colors and letters by Joshua Werner (Zombie Rush Riot, Jack of Spades).
At this time, retailers are able to pre-order this exclusively through Source Point Press directly. “We’ve had great success working directly with stores,” says Source Point Press Art Director Joshua Werner, “which allows us to really get to know where our products are and allows us to better tailor our efforts to meet retailers’ needs.”
As of July 18th, Source Point Press has also opened up pre-orders on their website
to customers as well two different options to choose from. “We’re all very passionate about this project, and we want to offer Holliston fans an option to get some bonus items if they choose,” says Source Point Press Editor-In-Chief Travis McIntire. Fans can pre- order the graphic novel by itself for only $4.99, a dollar less than the suggested retail price. Or for $9.99 their order will come with a sketch of a Holliston character drawn by comic book artist Stephen Sharar, as well as a mini-poster signed by the graphic novel’s creative team. “Also,” says McIntire, “we’ll be drawing four random names from the list of people who preorder, and they will be winning an original comic art page from the graphic novel.”
“The cast of the show have all been incredibly supportive and we’ve had such a great reaction already from the fans,” says Joshua Werner. “We’re just as excited for you to read this, I assure you.” To pre-order Holliston: Friendship is Tragic go to www.SourcePointPress.com and click on the ‘Store’ tab.
