The Hills Have a Holiday

I'm currently in Texas, as we at Fox Atomic Comics have been given a few fishin' days to celebrate the July 4th holiday. There's no rest for the weary, though, as this week marks the release of The Hills Have Eyes: The Beginning, the second graphic novel from Fox Atomic Comics! Tell your ma, tell your pa, just get them to the bookstore! I am very proud of this book, and if you like mayhem and maddness you'll dig it as well. The book's release is timed to coincide with The Hills Have Eyes 2 DVD (July 17th), and on that DVD you will find some fun special features that tie into the Hills Have Eyes graphic novel! The coolest is a ‘making of’ feature on the graphic novel itself, which features interviews from yours truly, Jimmy Palmioti, Justin Gray, John Higgins, Dennis Calero, Heidi MacDonald, and more! reviewed the Hills Have Eyes 2 DVD today, in fact, and had very nice things to say about the aforementioned ‘making of’:

“Finally, the hands-down best piece of content is the engaging, dynamically-produced look at the making of the Hills Have Eyes which, not shockingly, has nothing to do with the film itself. Featuring interviews with the comic creators and some captivating glimpses at the creation of a graphic novel, this feature illustrates how the writers have taken the basic premise and built out sixty years of prequel history that the viewer actually finds themselves wanting to read.”

So be sure to check out the DVD when it comes out on July 17th, and also don’t forget to pick up The Hills Have Eyes: The Beginning this week! We’re already getting some great reviews for the book; check ‘em out:
