Trevor Richardson of SBI Press said, “This book is the exact kind of fun we’re looking to have in 2019 – mashing up genres in unexpected and hilarious ways with creators we hope will keep coming back to goof off in our playground. I’ve been hunting Bigfoot in the Pacific Northwest for years and these guys found him in a Camaro with an AR-KANSAS license plate.”
The idea of Nasquatch was won by Kelly Williams in an arm wrestling match against a chupacabra. Kelly decimated the 3 ft 4 inch malnourished cryptid and then approached CW to assist in telling this tale. A tale so wonderfully insane it would take 10 people to tell, but they decided to settle on doing the best they could between themselves so they didn’t have to split the money 10 ways! What about the chupacabra, you ask? Fine, he’s writing it, but we’re keeping him locked in a closet and taking all of the credit, okay?
CW Cooke, a human/bear/sasquatch hybrid who yearned to tell the tale of his brethren in comic book form, had this to say after months of fist fights, drinking, and plotting of ideas, “Nasquatch is going to be unbelievably weird and fun. It stars a sasquatch who drives a car, for crying out loud.”
“I like sasquatches,” Kelly Williams said, “and I guess comics too. You’re welcome.”
Nasquatch will be a digital-first comic book series launching in 2019, first appearing in the pages of the Starburns Presents Free Comic Book Day issue from SBI Press and going from there digitally and eventually seeing print in trade paperback format.
CW Cooke is a comic book writer living in the Midwestern US who has been working in independent comics since 2007. Known for his bold writing style and fresh voices across all genres, CW has built a healthy resume of creator-owned comics (starting with Solitary with volume 2 currently in the works and now in development for film and television) which can be found online and in comic shops everywhere. L.U.C.H.A. and Nasquatch are his most recent comic announcements, with more to be announced soon. He doesn’t like capital letters as much as the next guy.
Kelly Williams makes comics. Probably best known for his work in horror, and contributing to EERIE and CREEPY at Dark Horse Comics as well as a long list of anthologies, creator owned books such as THE CABINET, METAPHASE, THE DARK and more. Kelly has done work with many publishers including IMAGE (Spread, Where We Live), IDW (TMNT cover), BOOM! (WWE), ACTION LAB (Puppet Master covers) TOP SHELF (soon to be released A Letter To Jo) and many, many more. He gets around.
