The connection between cinema and comic books has been a frequently raised subject but the separation was fairly obvious until now. Veteran motion picture storyboard artist Pete Von Sholly has created a groundbreaking publication that goes further than any previous attempt to blur the line between the two art forms. While employing the time-honored European "fumetti" format, this book goes light years beyond that simple approach. Custom-sculpted models, costumed actors, and mind-boggling computer-generated "special effects" come together to create a dynamic visual storytelling format heretofore unseen in graphic novels. Von Sholly's extensive experience working on countless sci-fi and horror-genre films (The Mask, Darkman, The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, Mars Attacks, etc.) as well as his experience as a Disney animation artist and conceptual designer come together to unveil a truly unbelievable leap in visual storytelling. The stories themselves run the gamut from tongue-in-cheek lampoons of '50 drive-in movies to gut-wrenching horror in the Lovecraft tradition. We no longer have to wait to see the future of graphic storytelling - it's right in front of our eyes in Pete Von Sholly's MORBID!
