Some Kind of Slaughter Posted Free Because of Harveys

Writer A. David Lewis is hoping to garner some Harvey Award nominations for his series Some Kind of Slaughter. Since the deadline for those noms is next Saturday, March 27, until then, you can read all four issues for free.

The first two issues were published in 2007 and 2008 from Archaia Studios Press, but the last two were delayed due to that publisher’s funding problems. They’re now due out this summer. From the press release:

Lewis is urging people to consider nominating it for either “Best New Series” or “Best Limited Series” Harvey categories. “This is not meant to be quid pro quo,” Lewis clarified, emphasizing his desire more to get the work seen than honored. “I just wanted people who read the first two issues to feel as good as I do about how it concludes. If they end up enjoying it as much as Marv [mpMann, the artist] and I did making it, so much the better.”

    And here I thought the Harveys were responsible for mass murder…

    I, too, was intrigued by the headline and oddly disappointed to learn that the first four words referred to a comic.

  5. Johanna Says:

    I admit, someone going crazy at an awards ceremony would be newsworthy, but y’all sound a *leetle* bloodthirsty here. :)
