MANTICORE v.1 releasing October 18th! by Keith Miller and Ian Gabriel from Rosarium Publishing
The Aryan race warrior.
A Colombian drug lord.
A Korean hit man.
A career stick-up man.
The wrong guy at the wrong place at the wrong time.
The puke Cho-mo-kiddy-toucher.
This ain’t the Breakfast Club and these are ain’t your new friends.
Welcome to the Protective Housing Unit (PHU), home to some of world’s worst criminals—many of whom so reviled they must not only be shielded from the American public, but the general prison population. This is your new life.
Simon, a white-collar criminal, is a new transfer to Pensacola Federal Prison Camp. He’s having a hard time adjusting to prison culture, and his newfound “friends” aren’t all that interested in making his new life any easier. Everyone in the PHU has his own agenda; alliances are, at best, temporary; and even the notion of friendship is laughable. But all that is about to change. This brutal yet familiar life they’ve all grown accustomed to is about to come to an end as a mysterious stranger is transferred to their unit and these hardened inmates start to die… Horribly.
One at a time.
Manticore is a 5-part prison horror comic book series by the talented duo, Keith Miller and Ian Gabriel. Keith is the writer behind Triboro Tales, Insensitives, and the forthcoming Rat Ronin zombie tale, Infest. This is Ian’s first professional comic book title.
Excerpt of a review of Manticore #1: Another thing I enjoy about Manticore is the artwork. I wish more comics were drawn in black and white. Like photographs, black and white comics seem to capture more emotion and detail. I am completely unfamiliar with Ian Gabriel but I am already becoming a fan. While the story is focused on dialogue, Gabriel does a great job illustrating the tension and the repression that is clear in the writing. – Dan Tres OMi “Comic Books for Colored Folks”
Manticore #2 review excerpt by Graphic Policy: ” “If anything check out there site here Manticore has so much to offer its readers and the creative team behind it of Keith Miller and Ian Gabriel, go really well together. I don’t know if they worked together before, but, if they did I am interested in seeing what they did. These two work really well and that’s so vital in a good comic. When both creators can read each other and add to the beauty of the work at hand and not hinder it. I mean when you read this comic you’ll come to appreciate it.“”
