The first official publication pushed by POWkabam will be a graphic novel by author/artist Ivan O'Neill, edited by R.J. Huneke, and colored by Kara Zisa titled Blackwood State. We sold out of the Preview comic, Issue # 0, at the Rune Works booth 1061 at the New York Comic Con.
For Blackwood State, O'Neill calls on a notorious state college and the life of a young lady struggling to live in a world that has no idea how not to crap on those that value the study of English writing. Alongside her fellow literary comrades, Guinevere Katz must attempt to keep her sanity and her grade as she survives one of the most obnoxious experiences of her academic career . . . and her professional career . . . and her life as a sentient being.
Calling on father Bill Shakespeare, as her god, and Falstaff as her inner muse and bartender, Gwen's deteriorative, drunken English career is a journey that seems perennially poised on the brink of disaster. Just how the hell does one make a living with a degree in English anyway?
