Allen: Son of Hellcock Ventures Into the Dark


Everyone loves a good comic book book debut and Allen: Son of Hellcock is just that. The comic book debut of Will Tracy and Gabe Koplowitz and illustrated by iguel Porto will be released this December from Z2 Comics. In it, title character Allen is cowardly, directionless, and less physically menacing than a daffodil. He’s also the only son of the mightiest hero ever to plunge his sword hilt-deep into the dark heart of evil… the mighty HELLCOCK! Enjoy the ride as Allen is thrust sword-first into a not-so-classic fantasy quest that, frankly, he would rather just sit out.

Tracy is better known as a writer for Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and is the former Editor in Chief of The Onion. Koplowitz is a writer/director who makes promos at VH1. And Porto is a cartoonist, and illustrator living in Vigo, Spain. He has worked for Redbook, El País, Mongolia, done posters for music groups (Foot Village's European tour) and covers (the spanish edition of LORD OF CHAOS), but mostly he spends his days doing educational books and teaching drawing and color.

Full press release below.
