Photojournalist Savannah Loy is missing. When private detective Ira Avery is hired to find her, he soon discovers there’s much more to this missing person case than he ever expected. There’s something big he cannot see, something bearing down on the entire city of San Hannibal, Calif.
Created by Dan Schkade and JD Faith, “San Hannibal” is a retro-futuristic, hard-boiled crime graphic novel whose first chapter debuts in the new issue of Omega Comics Presents, our premier platform for launching new comic book talent and properties.
Featuring a look and feel unlike anything else on the market — call it “neon noir” — “San Hannibal” is as visually daring as it is entirely engrossing. It follows Avery through his dealings with thugs, a makeshift rock star and pagan ritualists as he uncovers a conspiracy that reaches all the way up to San Hannibal’s political elite.
Schkade writes and/or draws the web-based comics The Fowl and The Adventures of Stop and Go at thecommitteebuilding.com. Faith created the superhero webcomic Acrobat and illustrates the coming-of-age sci-fi thriller Just Another Sheep at justanothersheep.com.
“San Hannibal” is backed up by “Sweet Dreams,” a suspenseful terror short by Russell Lissau (The Batman Strikes!, Strawberry Shortcake) and Christine Larsen (La Morte Sisters, Kung Fu Panda).
