ShowDevils #4 Comic Book

SHOWDEVILS #4, based on the very real sideshow performance duo SHOWDEVILS featuring THE ENIGMA (X-Files, Ripley's Believe It Or Not, Making Monsters), and SERANA ROSE with SHEA FREELOVE of CIRCUS EMPORIUM. The comic book depicts the Show Devils misadventures best summed up as Scooby-Doo meets Rob Zombie's The Devil's Rejects. The new book concludes as a series of short stories with Daniel Crosier (Distortions Unlimited, Vincent Price Presents) writing and providing cover art, with artists DION HARRIS (The Burning Metronome), J. JAMES MCFARLAND, and RIO BURTON published by Misassembly.

SHOWDEVILS #4 picks up where #3 left off with The Enigma, Serana Rose, and Shea Freelove en route to their next gig.  This leads them having to deal with self-abusive serial killer, a voltron creature made of many burlesque performers, and ultimately their arch-rival, the maniacal Mr. Osgone.
