Deadlands: The Cackler Hits New Heights in the Weird West

CacklerCoverFebruary 17, 2015 – For Immediate Release

Visionary Comics and Pinnacle Entertainment takes the Deadlands brand to new heights in comics with The Cackler!

Deadlands is one of the most beloved, enduring and popular RPGs ever. With its rich meta-plot, it’s a world as storied as most any comics universe, and as a weird western, its helped to define and popularize the genre that has enjoyed a major resurgence in recent years. As Deadlands ramps up to celebrate its 20th anniversary, it seemed the perfect time to bring this story to life.

“The Cackler is one of the major villains of the Deadlands universe, one whose origin story runs deep to the roots of the game, and opens up all new possibilities for the setting,” said Visionary CCO C. Edward Sellner. “But its also a perfect jumping on point for comic fans who love the genre and think there isn’t much cooler in the world than a perfect blend of horror, steampunk and mysticism all set against the harsh Old West.” The story is self-contained and while filled with familiar elements of the game, introduces them so the new fan can equally enjoy the story as is.

Deadlands creator Shane Lacy Hensley is penning the tale, and Visionary has assembled the best talent in the business for art. Bart Sears is assisting in storytelling, and doing pencils and ink work, and Michael Atiyeh is doing colors. “We’re very proud of this book and as you can see in the early pages, it is going to be absolutely gorgeous!” Sellner added.

The Kickstarter has reached its funding goal, but still has awesome stretch goals, as it enters its final two weeks for backers to get an exclusive jam-packed Kickstarter edition. Visionary has also been debuting new pages from issue 1 every week on their web-comic portal, and the first half of that issue is now live.
