Oni Press, Portland’s premier independent comic book publisher, announced today Alabaster Shadows, a monster-filled middle grade graphic novel by newcomers Matt Gardner and Rashad Doucet. Alabaster Shadows will release on December 9th.
A gorgeous house, a two car garage, friendly neighbors. Everything’s perfect in Alabaster Shadows… or so it seems. When Carter and his family move to the neighborhood, he begins to notice that something horrific lurks under the surface of this suburban paradise. Worse yet, his child-hating teacher is in on it! It’s up to him and his friends to confront dark, Cthulhu-like terrors too frightening for adults to handle!
Artist Rashad Doucet adds, “What can I say about this book… it's a tribute to everything we love about big hair, monsters, and kid adventure films from the 80's. Also I can't seem stop myself from drawing giant afros.”
