About

About The Project

Down by Kontact is a graphic novel inspired by George Romero's Night of the Living Dead, and the Pre-Code horror films of the 1930's.

The story is adapted from a screenplay written by Matthew Myers, horror journalist and writer for TheBlood-Shed, and Attack From Planet B. The Illustrator of this project is Dixie Filloy, the owner of Dr. Eff Designs and daughter of legendary animator Arthur Filloy.

The Story

Down by Kontact follows four inebriated friends who are planning to dominate a tournament at their local arcade. They soon find themselves in a terrifying nightmare being stalked by the undead, struggling to survive, and protecting a young girl.

With a methodical and creepy story, combined with an unsettling subplot, this modern homage to classic horror is set to take readers on a very dark ride.

 

Where We Are

Dixie has been moving at a faster than expected rate. Her love of horror and talent is really shining through, and watching this story come to life has been an incredible experience. We are projecting a digital release in October before Halloween; the printed copies will be available between late November and mid December. We are independently distributing the graphic novel on our website which is now active at www.downbykontact.com so be sure to check us out.
