New York Comic-Con 2014!!

What an amazing time at New York Comic Con! It was an unbelievable feeling to have fans come up to our table and say they had picked up the book at the last con and loved it! Wow. And two new fans bought our book on Thursday and were back at our table later in the weekend to let us know they loved it! And my favorite might’ve been the woman who picked up issue 1 and said “I’ll give it a shot” and then a few hours later came back and said “I have to buy issues 2-4. I read issue 1 in line for a panel and I have to know what happens!” Such a fun four days seeing some of our longtime fans and meeting new fans. Here are some pictures from the Con. Hope you enjoy! And if you haven’t picked up a book you can still use our “NYCC” discount code at our webstore and get 20% off. Thank you!



Crave Online Named Dreary One of the Best Graphic Novels of 2013!

Huge thank you to Crave Online for supporting Dreary in their recent best of 2013 list. Check it out here!

An excerpt from Crave:

“Parkin says the inspiration of this book was to write a western without the standard trappings of a western, and he succeeds across the board with this odd blend of rock-n-roll and western mythology. Two strangers arrive in a town called Dreary and step into a world filled with paranoia perpetuated by an enigmatic preacher. They have to figure out the town’s secret before, you guessed it, the Devil gets to Dreary. Parkin’s writing crackles with energy, and Jefferson’s art is elegant yet still works with the rugged story.”Iann Robinson

Thank you Iann!

We’d also like to thank the endless support from Space Goat Productions and Space Goat Brazil and all of our wonderful fans.

Dreary Updates

As we progress from screenplay to book back to screenplay and finally to the silver screen we wanted to share with you how this relationship began and what’s going on now.

Film producer Daryl Freimark and writer David Parkin met at IFP’s Filmweek in NYC in 2008. Parkin’s screenplay for THE DEVIL IS DUE IN DREARY brought them together and a year later they decided to create a comic version of DREARY before making the film. Through two separate Kickstarter campaigns they were able to create four individual issues of DREARY and ultimately the Graphic Novel!
Through the process of creating the book Parkin refined the story and is currently finishing the latest draft of the screenplay. Meanwhile, Freimark has produced 4 films in the last 3 years including SOME VELVET MORNING with Stanley Tucci and Alicia Eve and the upcoming FIVE STAR (written and directed by Keith MillerWelcome to Pine Hill) premiering at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Freimark and Parkin plan to shoot THE DEVIL IS DUE IN DREARY film in early 2015.
Catch the world premiere of FIVE STAR at Tribeca 2014!
