Check out these AWESOME reviews on the Dead Man’s Hand:
Positively Nerdy – “Taking elements from a variety of horror and fantasy concepts including ghosts, zombies, sorcery and even some classic Universal horror, Deadlands Volume 1 Dead Man’s Hand, shoves them all into a blender and pours the results out over the down and dirty setting of the Old West.

Comics Beat – “Merging fictional Western settings with familiar character types and situations, would be cliché, if not mitigated by  the elements of  Steam Punk, Magic, and Science Fiction, and mostly served up within the context of the horror genre.”

Geeks with Wives – “If you want some Lovecraft in your Eastwood, grab Deadlands vol 1: Dead Man’s Hand!”

Deadlands: The Cackler is Coming!

CacklerCover

February 3, 2015
Visionary Comics and Pinnacle Entertainment are bringing the next volume of the original weird-western to life with Deadlands: The Cackler!

Deadlands, the game that defined the Weird West, mixing elements of the classic Western with Horror and Steampunk to create a unique world of monsters, myths, magic and gunslingers has been enjoying a huge resurgence of popularity and making its mark in the world of comics and soon prose, with huge announcements in recent months.

The first collection of the “All-Star Western” one-shots originally published by Image, is now available through pre-order from IDW, and has a special promotional campaign still running, where anyone pre-ordering the book can get two free digital books, a Deadlands comic, and game book.

A partnership between Visionary and Tor Books was also recently announced, with three Deadlands novels to premiere starting in Fall of 2015, starting with New York Times’ bestselling author, Jonathan Maberry’s Ghostwalkers.

Building on that momentum, Pinnacle and Visionary launched a Kickstarter campaign just last week to fund the development of the next graphic novel entitled Deadlands: The Cackler.

Written by the creator of the game, Shane Lacy Hensley, the book reveals the secret origins of one of the most notorious villains of the setting, a maniacal harrowed who has scoured the weird west in search of a blood relative for sinister reasons. The book is being drawn by comics legend Bart Sears and colors are from Michael Atiyeh, and while the campaign is just a few hundred dollars away from its lofty goal, there is still plenty of time to get on board.

Check out the Kickstarter here >>

“We wanted to do something never before done in the history of licensed gaming comics,” said C. Edward Sellner, CCO of Visionary Comics. “We’re about to hit the 20th anniversary of the game, and with all the developments on the property, we wanted to bring something that both lifelong fans of the game would love, but also be hugely appealing to new fans. We wanted a graphic novel that hit the same marks of quality as our previous Deadlands comics, with top creators. We wanted something that only the creator of the game itself could write, a story central to the core of the world, and one that would shake it to its’ very roots. On that score The Cackler delivers.”

The campaign runs until March 5th and includes a number of extra rewards, and an exclusive Kickstarter edition of the book that won’t be available anywhere else. Fans of the game will enjoy the ties to the backstory of the world, but the story stands firmly on its own as a classic and stunning weird western.

Visionary is releasing the entire first issue throughout the campaign, with new pages added to their web-comic portal every Tuesday.

Deadlands: Dead Man’s Hand Q&A

We’ve gotten some questions on the first volume of Deadlands: Dead Man’s Hand in terms of the direct market edition from IDW, so we wanted to take a few minutes to point out some particulars you may have missed.

What exactly does this edition include?

It includes the main features of the original four one-shots Visionary published through Image Comics. It also includes the bonus sketchbook and gaming content, and the short story “What a Man’s Gotta Do?” we published on our web-comic portal. It also has a NEW, never before published short story from Deadlands creator, Shane Hensley, and an exclusive teaser chapter from Ghostwalkers, the first Deadlands novel, by New York Times best-selling author, Jonathan Maberry.

I have the Collector’s Convention Exclusive Edition, how is this version different?

This edition is full-sized, standard trade, whereas the Convention edition was digest-sized. This edition also has Shane’s short story and the novel teaser exclusive, neither of which were done when the previous edition was published.

What happened to THE KID, why is he not included in the collection?

We have definite plans for The Kid, which includes more stories with him as he turned out to be one of our more popular debuts. Given that, we thought it would make more sense to hold off on his origin, and include that in the first collection dedicated to his tale. We hope to have more details on his return by the time Dead Man’s Hand hits stores in March.

Why this BIG push on pre-orders?

One of the things we heard A LOT with the one-shots, was folks unable to find them in their local stores. Simply put, retailers have to order a lot of books EVERY month, and invest a lot in what books they stock. So, a lot of titles they aren’t sure they can sell, they won’t stock heavy, or sometimes, won’t even order period. We get that.

So, by pushing pre-orders, we want to make life easier for our retailers, by encouraging folks to let them know in advance, so they can order our titles KNOWING they will sell. It also makes life easier on our fans, who can then rest assured they won’t miss out.
