What do you get when you throw three murderers into one prison cell together? That’s the question poised by “Crawl to Me” creator Alan Robert’s new series “Killogy.” Intriguing, yes? But this series takes it one step further by asking not only what happens when three murderers are locked together, but what if those murderers are based on the likenesses of “Goodfellas” and “Raging Bull” star Frank Vincent, legendary punk drummer Marky Ramone and “Dexter’s” Brea Grant?
According to a press release from IDW, Killogy is “an off-the-wall, genre-busting mash-up of crime, dark comedy and horror.” After creating the concept, Robert decided to base the characters on Vincent, Ramone and Grant. He said “I had specific ideas on what these characters should look like and I’d constantly find myself comparing them to the stars we ended up approaching. I thought it would be a complete long shot to get them involved, but to my surprise, they were all very receptive to the idea” He went on to say, “When I was growing up, I must’ve seen Goodfellas and Raging Bull about forty times each, easy. I mean, I can still recite entire scenes by heart. The same goes for my old Ramones records. They are total classics to me. So now, to be working with some of my childhood heroes, along with Brea, on something so cool and different like this, what can I say… it’s a great honor and at the same time, it’s a bit surreal.”
