Andy Richardson:

Addicted to Comics

Stunt men heroes who lay their lives on the line for that perfect feat and unsettling murders on a college campus. Just par the course for Andy Richardson’s Addicted to Comics.



Killer Stunts

Heroes put their lives on the line on a regular basis. So a comic book focusing on movie stunt men heroes, who also risk their lives as part of their day’s work makes a lot of sense, right?

The mystery here when constantly fighting such battles as part of a stunt is, what is real, and what is fake? If a hero almost dies while filming a stunt for a movie, is it an accident… or the way somebody hoped things might turn out?

This fast-paced drama mixes action, humor, and romantic interplay with the kind of danger and suspense one would expect from a series whose stars think little of facing death in the name of getting a good stunt on film.

Scott Alan Kinney and Scott Cohn collaborate on the full-color title.









In “Keires,” a university anatomy class is the seemingly innocuous backdrop to a series of murders and mutilations. Is there a connection? Three college students think there might be, but the truth is even more terrible than they feared.

In “Silver Salts,” 1950s Los Angeles is the setting for another murder, where a crime photographer finds something particularly disturbing… something that takes him back to his own troubled past.

These two original stories, written and drawn by Michele Petrucci, are both tension-filled and strangely compelling. Presented in sparsely-drawn, dream-like black and white.
