From writer Mark McCann, artist Phil Buckenham, and cover artist Christopher Lair, we have an exclusive look at Never Never #1 for Daily Dead readers!
"This terrifying Virus imprint comic series will now be available in comic stores for the first time! Never Never, as described by creator Mark McCann, is an amalgamation of Peter Pan, The Hunger Games, and Lord of the Flies. In other words, a survival horror fantasy inspired by classics but intended for a new age. In Never Never, a girl named Winter follows the boy-sprite Petros off to Never, Never...but this is no sweet children's bedtime tale. Instead, Winter must face something horrific: an island full of immortal cannibals with a dark secret that sustains its existence, in the most unnatural and awful of ways."
Writer Mark McCann had the following to say about his love of horror and how that informed the direction he took for Never Never: “I have a passion for the survival horror genre, from Romero’s groundbreaking films to Fulci’s gorier efforts. This project allows us to blend genres and give old concepts a terrifying new interpretation. We aim to channel real fear and palpable discomfort into the reader. The key is the characters. If we’ve done this right, you’ll be rooting for the hero, but also understand and even sympathize with the villain.”
