Malice and Mistletoe is a festive graphic novel, brought to you by the delinquent minds of screenwriter Nathan Graham Davis and D.C. Comics artist Jack Purcell. In a nutshell —
After a series of grisly Thanksgiving murders, a suit-wearing, cigar-smoking Santa Claus hires an assassin to track down and kill the mythical Krampus.
It’s twisted, it’s bloody, and we funded it on Kickstarter back in September, thanks to the support of 149 people whose children Krampus won’t be eating this year. We’re now hard at work producing pages and hope to be releasing it to you in mid-to-late spring, 2015.
Nathan Graham Davis has worked as a screenwriter with companies like 1984 Private Defense Contractors (producers of Lone Survivor, Dredd, The Grey) and Millar/Gough Ink (producers of Smallville). Malice and Mistletoe is his first foray into comics, but it’s unlikely to be his last. He lives in Easthampton, MA with his amazing wife and a destructive tornado (which sometimes looks like two little children, depending on the angle).
Jack Purcell graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Illustration from the Massachusetts College of Art in 1996. He took a variety of independent penciling and inking jobs, before finally focusing on his work as an inker and landing work with D.C., Marvel, and Heavy Metal Magazine. Titles include Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy, Green Arrow, Teen Titans, Batgirl, Batwoman, Gotham Underground, and others. He’s been teaching comic book creation workshops for 20 years and feels very old when saying that. He lives in Easthampton, MA with his son, daughter, and WWE Championship belt.
Davin Pasek graduated from Seton Hall University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic, Interactive, and Advertising Design in 2009 and has been working as a graphic designer since. Being a lifelong fanboy with a concentration in Comics, Davin wanted to branch out and contribute to the comic book industry using his skill in typography and color theory.
