IDW ANNOUNCES CLASSICS MUTILATED COMING IN OCTOBER

IDW Publishing is proud to announce CLASSICS MUTILATED, an all-new prose collection of genre mash-up stories by top-tier authors, coming in October. At San Diego Comic-Con, IDW will debut the original novella “Dread Island” by noted horror and crime writer Joe R. Lansdale, as an exclusive preview of the upcoming collection. Lansdale will be featured at special autograph sessions at the IDW booth #2643 throughout the convention.

CLASSICS MUTILATED offers a different take on the current monster-lit trend by challenging a coterie of major talents to twist fantasy and horror elements with classic tales and icons, creating all-new stories. Lansdale’s “Dread Island” showcases the collection’s unique tone by featuring Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer in a new adventure, with bizarre fantasy and supernatural elements out of both H. P. Lovecraft and Uncle Remus.

– Patrick Gleason:

“Looks very cool! But I’ll reserve my final judgment for when I see it in action up on the screen. I did just see one of the interior shots from the EW issue and Renoylds is wearing the brown bomber jacket. That really made me go, ‘Wow, that’s Hal Jordan!”
