LOS ANGELES, Calif., December 9, 2010 – Schizophrenia, resentment, doubt…murder? These are all things Brian Cohn inherits from his father in Top Cow Productions’ newly suspense/thriller, ECHOES, the first independent-styled series coming out of Minotaur Press.
From the creative minds of acclaimed author Joshua Hale Fialkov (TUMOR) and rising artist Rahsan Ekedal (CREEPY), the first issue of the 5-issue miniseries, ECHOES #1, debuts the end of this month. Brian Cohn was learning to deal with the Schizophrenia inherited from his father. Supportive wife, new baby on the way, drugs to control the voices. But when on his father’s deathbed, he learns that he also inherited the trophies of his father’s career as a serial killer. Will his madness send him further down into the crawlspace of his father’s mind?
"I could not be more excited for the world to see the hard work Rahsan and I have done over the past few months,” said Fialkov. “Echoes is by far the darkest book I've ever done, and I couldn't be more grateful to the folks at Top Cow for taking a chance on something so... outside the box. Now, do me a favor and give a try to prove them right for taking the chance!"
