What happens when a longtime comic book character has come to the end of her run? You kill her! But how? That’s where the fun begins…..
Chapterhouse Comics is pleased to announce its newest title: Die Kitty Die! - created, written and drawn by Dan Parent and Fernando Ruiz.
Die Kitty Die! comes to the upstart publisher after its successful Kickstarter campaign, which saw the 30-year Archie Comics veterans exceed full funding after only eight days.
“Die Kitty Die! is a very special project for Fernando and I” says Parent, “It was an honour to see the outpouring of support from our community of fans!”
‘And now, we’re excited to give Kitty a home’ says Ruiz, ‘and Chapterhouse Comics seemed like just the spot!’
Finding a place in Chapterhouse’s ever-growing roster is an exciting prospect for Publisher Fadi Hakim. ’All of us at Chapterhouse grew up reading and still read Dan and Fernando’s work’ says Hakim. ‘Having Kitty on board is a dream come true!’
Die Kitty Die! releases to comic book stores throughout North America and Europe on October 26, 2016. In celebration, Chapterhouse has commissioned Parent and Ruiz to do Halloween variants for all of its titles that month, including Captain Canuck, Northguard, All-New Classic Captain Canuck and The Pitiful Human-Lizard. A small teaser of the series will be available in the Chapterhouse Summer Special 2016, releasing this June!
Dan Parent and Fernando Ruiz are both graduates of The Kubert School with decades of experience in creating comics. Both have spent most of that time at Archie Comics writing and drawing many of their award-winning titles including the Betty & Veronica Spectacular, Archie’s Weird Mysteries, Archie Meets Kiss, Archie vs. Predator and Archie vs. Sharknado!, as well as introducing Archie Comics’ first openly gay character, Kevin Keller.
Chapterhouse Comics, launched May 2015, is Canada’s largest comic book publisher with 16 monthly- quarterly titles to date in comic and book format, including Captain Canuck, Northguard, Johnny Canuck, The Pitiful Human Lizard, Spirit Leaves, The Fourth Planet and Life, Death & Sorcery.
