Source Point Press is releasing a new horror graphic novel titled ‘The Rejected’, which is hitting stores this fall. An early limited edition variant cover was released at Motor City Comic Con in May and promptly sold out at the convention. Source Point Press and writer Stan Konopka will be giving one more chance at getting an early limited edition release with a special run of 100 Garden State Comic Fest exclusive covers that can be purchased at their convention July 8th and 9th. This variant cover will feature artwork by Keyla Valerio (the artist from the incredibly popular Source Point Press comic ‘The Séance Room’).
The Rejected is written by Stan Konopka, with art by Corey Christian Anderson, lettering by Micah Myers, and with cover art by Shawn Langley. While the title does not hit stores until this fall, it will be available digitally in July, and Source Point Press is taking pre-orders for print copies on their website now, to ensure loyal readers get a copy before it sells out. The 56-page graphic novel retails for only $5.99. “This creative team is a welcome addition to the Source Point Press family, and The Rejected is a perfect fit in our lineup,” says Editor-In-Chief Travis McIntire.
This synopsis of the graphic novel was provided by writer Stan Konopka and famed author and filmmaker David C. Hayes: Billy is hounded, bullied and abused. He wants nothing more than a loving family… but it doesn’t seem to be in the cards for him. That hate. That dejection. It calls out in Billy’s voice and, this time, something answered. The Rejected, led by Mr. Teeth, offer Billy otherworldly protection and a place in the family. The shadowy beings allow Billy to take his revenge on anyone that maligned him. Billy has to be careful, though. The Rejected can make your desires come true… but at what price?
“The Rejected is the type of story that we can all relate to on some level, and one that forcibly turns your head to face the darkness within us all,” says Source Point Press Art Director Joshua Werner. “What would we do? How far would we go, if we had Mr. Teeth by our side?”
