"The whole world wants Jane Morgan DEAD! And it’s the BEST THING that’s ever happened to her! STAY ALIVE is a horror-comedy GRAPHIC NOVEL created by Jim Harberson, Mackie Wildwood, and Stephen Baskerville. It’s about celebrity exploitation, mob justice, and serial killers.


Hollywood starlet Jane Morgan revives her fading career by provoking a group of serial killers and then starring in Stay Alive, a reality TV show about surviving the killers’ attempts to murder her.


Jane Morgan is an actress fallen from an Oscar-nominated film debut into personal misadventures and Z-grade, T-and-A slasher flicks.  Desperate to rescue her career, she provokes uKill.com.  uKill is a mob justice entertainment consortium that murders whomever its web site patrons choose by popular election—literally anyone, anywhere.  By spoiling the last-wish pro baseball adventure of a terminally ill child, Jane becomes uKill’s target. She parlays her calamity into a starring role on Stay Alive.  It’s a reality TV show about surviving uKill’s attempts to murder her.  Jane’s blood-splashed redemption path follows, populated by stalkers, assassins, and show-me-the-money allies. They include: Hank Summers, Stay Alive’s self-promoting producer who prefers good ratings to Jane’s safety; Moses Rabkin, Jane’s ex-military bodyguard (and romantic interest) who’s comically maladjusted to polite society; Nox, uKill’s plague doctor-masked, darkly-comic emcee; and Kenyon Kraft, Jane’s formerly-incarcerated and homicidal stalker, liberated by uKill to hunt her.

STAY ALIVE is published by Markosia, one of the UK’s leading graphic novel publishers, and is available in softcover and e-book formats at Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble. Check us out on Twitter (@NovelStay) and Instagram (stayalivegn)!"
