American Gothic Press has announced a new series coming this April, Killbox. The new series from Tom Riordan and Nathan Gooden focuses on an mysterious casino in Los Angeles that makes money off of murder.
Bartender Timothy Choir and otherwise regular people play as undercover pawns in a violent competition that leaves the winner with millions of dollars—and the losers dead. But there is much more than mortal death going on in the Killbox, and Timothy soon discovers that winning might not be an option.
"Killbox has actually been a long time in the making," says writer Tom Riordan. "I've been sniffing around this idea since the first run of Survivor. I remember thinking, 'How great would it be if suddenly all these [guys] had to kill each other?' I dismissed it as an unoriginal thought, but something about the concept gnawed away at me."
"This project scared me from the beginning, not only because of the frightening story, but because I knew it would stretch me as an artist," says Gooden. "It's a very ambitious and brilliantly written world, with a very unique feel that deserves its own unique art. As a result, it kept me awake countless nights—much like a good horror story should!"
Killbox #1 will ship April 20, 2016, with covers by Gooden and Darick Robertson.
