Rave Reviews!

Comics Bulletin calls Pablo Churin's Hybrid artwork "first rate" and says Peter Kwong's script is "paced perfectly!" They conclude: "If you’re a fan of old school, creature feature movies and like a little more monster in your horror, then this is a good book for you." Couldn't have said it better myself!

And Aintitcool's Ambush Bug feels that Night & Fog #1 has "the right ingredients for a pretty kick @$$ story!" He goes on to say that writers Alex Leung and Matthew Bradford "set a nice foreboding mood for the book. This book is touting itself as a 'Hammer film meets ALIENS' which is a high standard to live up to, but the set-up looks very promising and the gritty art by Roberto Castro definitely delivers in tension and thrills. I’m going to keep my eye on this one to see if it lives up its hype. So far so good, though."

HYBRID Out Today!

The second official Studio 407 title hits comic shops today (a Thursday instead of a Wednesday thanks to the holiday last week)!

Hybrid is a four-issue miniseries that plums the depths of ecological terror off the coast of Cancun. Four friends charter a boat for a relaxing vacation, only to sail headlong into an unfathomable nightmare. As they cast off, they learn that just a day earlier a diver disappeared in the same waters they're cruising. The further out they sail, the more they find biological irregularities in the local marine life, a sea darkened with mass quantities of a mysterious ink, the looming threat of modern-day pirates, and a towering whaling trawler adrift in the open water. When they spot a frightened little girl waving at them from the bow of the derelict ship, they have no choice but to investigate. But when they reach the ship, they realize she may not be alone...

Hybrid is written by Peter Kwong. Artist Pablo Churin and the talented colorists at Shipeng Lee Studio provide the atmospheric visuals. Editor Chad Jones rounds out the creative team.

Hybrid #1 (of 4) carries a cover price of $2.75 and is suggested for mature readers.
