SHOW DEVILS #2, based on the very real sideshow performance duo SHOW DEVILS featuring THE ENIGMA (X-Files, Ripley's Believe It Or Not, Making Monsters), and SERANA ROSE. 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 is a series of short stories with Daniel Crosier (Distortions Unlimited, Vincent Price Presents) writing and co-illustrating with artists Stan Yan (Subculture, The Wang) & Jolyon Yates (Ninjago, Revvvelations), published by Mother Mind Studios. We hope to unveil SHOW DEVILS #2 at DENVER COMIC CON, May 31st - June 2, with The Enigma and Serana Rose in attendance.
SHOW DEVILS #2 picks up where #1 left off with The Enigma and Serana Rose exhausted and seeking refuge from their battle with the villainous Mr. Osgone only to find themselves battling a fecal demon and a mutant goldfish man.
THE ENIGMA career in sideshow spans over two decades performing at Lollapalooza, and opening for Nine Inch Nails, as well as being featured in the X-Files, Ripley's Believe It Or Not and Travel Channel's Making Monsters.
SERANA ROSE has been performing sideshow for several years and has established herself as an up and coming force of nature.
SHOW DEVILS on stage, breath new life into an old art form with their talent for humor, wit, and presentation, supported by their disciplined skill that will leave the audience in awe.
