Sharknado Producers Turn To Comics For Jail Bait

15766_103185BSharknado. It says so much.

Well, The Asylum, the studio that brought you that deadly attack of marine mammals from the sky, has another even-more-exploitative feature length production on the way, Jail Bait, which they describe as a "provocative and sexy girls-in-prison drama".

Yup.

But in order to prepare the way, they've put out a comic book, 17 And Life: Jail Bait by Gabriel Campisi, Keith Thomas, Ken Haeser, Buz Hasson and Blair Smith.

That's the art team from Dynamite's The Living Corpse itself turned into a 3D animated movie The Amazing Adventures of the Living Corpse from Anchor Bay.

So what's the comic about? As if we couldn't guess?

When her abusive stepfather is accidentally killed in a drunken stooper, young Anna Nix is blamed for his death and sent to juvenile prison for a crime she didn't commit. In prison, her life is turned upside down as she falls into a sinister world of drugs, violence and corruption. Will she ever get out alive?

Mature audiences only! After being sent to juvenile prison for the murder of her abusive stepfather, young Anna Nix discovers drugs, mental illness, complex relationships and an eventual search for redemption. Now a major motion picture from The Asylum, the studio that brought you Sharknado!

Note, no women were involved in the making of this comic book. And yes, it is probably everything you are expecting it to be.

I understand this is the beginning of a line of comics from The Asylum, including one for the long awaited Sharknado 2 due to debut at San Diego Comic Con.
