〉 The award-winning graphic novel answers the question, “What if The Joker came to a Gotham without Batman?”
The highly acclaimed graphic novel OXYMORON from Tyler James and 2015 Young & Hungry List writer John Lees is coming to the market. The four-part crime story, with art by Alex Cormack, hails from the upstart comics company ComixTribe. Released in October, 2014, it has quickly built a strong fanbase that includes some of the comic industry’s biggest names. Repped by Sidney Sherman of Rosa Entertainment, we’re hearing this title is already out to select producers, and the buzz is starting to build.
In the vein of Se7en and Hannibal, the cerebral thriller is centered around an afflicted detective who hunts a serial killer obsessed with contradiction, one who is painting a bloody canvass of carnage with the entrails of politicians and power brokers in the corrupt city she calls home.
In Oxymoron, the duo behind the haunting masterpiece And Then Emily Was Gone and the superhero murder mystery The Red Ten have created a dark new world in which chaos reigns. With the rise of the dark, twisted comic book adaptations – including Warner Bros. line-up of the DC titles Batman V. Superman and Suicide Squad – and the willingness of smaller studios like Bold to branch out into the genre with alternative content sources, there’s no shortage of places where Oxymoron could land.
ComixTribe was founded by James with the goal of providing quality content and resources for creators to make better comics. The company aims to curate a small selection of quality columns, podcasts, and resources to appeal to the comic creating community at large.
