Your favorite characters from the TV series Holliston are back, and this time they’re going straight to hell in “Holliston Goes to Hell,” the third book in the graphic novel series based on the fan-favorite horror sit-com. When “Adam,” “Joe,” “Laura,” and “Corri” attend their High School Reunion an ancient colonial curse creates a gigantic sinkhole that swallows the entire town of Holliston, MA down to Hell! Now the gang must each face off with their darkest personal fear if they’re to save their souls from the clutches of the Devil himself!
“It was a delight to send the characters of Holliston to Hell,” says writer Greg Wright. “The story is filled with payoffs for horror fans to find and there’s plenty of demonic shenanigans that only the Holliston gang can deliver.”
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have the creative team together again for another Holliston adventure,” says Source Point Press Art Director Joshua Werner. “The demand from the horror community for more Holliston is at an all time high and we’re going to deliver the craziest and most exciting story to date, complete with all your favorite characters from the show.”
Created by filmmaker Adam Green (the Hatchet franchise, Frozen), Holliston originally ran for two seasons in 2012/2013 on the FEARnet cable television network. In 2014 as the show was gearing up to start on a third season, Holliston suffered the tragic loss of cast member Dave Brockie (GWAR) and the FEARnet network was dissolved in a merger between Comcast and Time Warner. The graphic novel series from Source Point Press has kept Holliston alive for fans by delivering new stories while they continue to hope for news of a new season.
“Holliston has always had an incredibly loyal cult following,” says creator Adam Green. “That audience has grown exponentially since the show began streaming on Shudder about 8 months ago so the timing of this new book from Source Point Press couldn’t be better.”
