In addition to the re-released Officer Downe we discussed yesterday, Joe Casey has a second upcoming graphic novel from Image Comics with Doc Bizarre, MD.
Doc Bizarre, MD tells the story of the titular character has he travels the world healing the sick and taking care of all sorts of supernatural ailments. What seems to be similar to Image/Skybound’s book Witch Doctor, Doc Bizarre sees Casey once again collaborating with Charlatan Ball artist, the talented Andy Suriano.
The book is slated for 72 pages at $12.99 (compare to Officer Downe’s 96 pages at the same price) and an October release. For the full press release, please check behind the cut.
The writer of GODLAND and recent, over-the-top sensation BUTCHER BAKER, THE RIGHTEOUS MAKER has once again teamed up with his former CHARLATAN BALL collaborator Andy Suriano to offer readers a new solution to their supernatural problems. DOC BIZARRE, M.D., a strange tale of sick monsters, medically-challenged myths, and ghouls at Death’s door, will debut in October from Image Comics.
“I loved collaborating with Joe again,” Suriano said. “Every time we put our heads together I feel like I need a trip to the sanitarium after–the dude’s sick! In the best possible way, of course. This new cast of characters we brought to life are twisted and equally as colorful; I just hope everyone’s ready for the bizarre!”
“Another technicolor brain dump from Andy and me,” added Casey. “This time delivered in one, easily digestible chunk of hardcover graphic novel goodness! Hopefully folks will have as much fun reading it as we had making it.”
Prepare to enter the world of DOC BIZARRE, M.D., a world of coughing creeps and diseased devils, a world where a doctor’s prescription might include wolfsbane and garlic, a world where even the most powerful vampires find themselves crippled by the common cold. Who else can they turn to for relief, but DOC BIZARRE, M.D.?
DOC BIZARRE M.D., a 72-page full color comedic horror comic for $12.99, is available to order in the August issue of Previews and will be available at a comic store near you on October 19, 2011.
