I found out some very cool news recently! One of my all time favorite novels, Venomous by Chris Krovatin, has been turned into a comic book titled Deadlocke, which is on the shelf now, and a screenplay that is in the works. I read the comic not too long ago, and while I'm definitely not a comicbook person, I really did love it. Krovatin created an awesomely dark character with Locke, and the reader can't help but sucked into his really screwed-up life. It was interesting to see the comicbook version of the story. The creators, Arvid Nelson and Nick Stakal, did and outstanding job.
In modern-day New York City, a ragtag group of rebellious teens throws its annual raucous Weimar bash filled with debauchery, booze, and bloody knuckles. Going for the first time is Locke Vinetti, a newcomer to this band of bored rich kids--a loner who usually prefers to escape into the world of his alter ego comic book creation, Deadlocke. Under the tutelage of the group's charming but unpredictable ringleader Casey, Locke has learned to express his art, and his angst, in ways he never thought possible. As the violent energy of Deadlocke continues to storm up inside of him, Locke must learn to control his newfound strength at the risk of losing Renee, the darkly beautiful girl of his dreams. Determined to prove that Deadlocke's rage will overpower Locke's love, Casey provokes Locke in a brutal rooftop battle where their lives, and their souls, hang in the balance.
Take a look at what Chris Krovatin has to say about Venomous, the movie, and Deadlocke, the comic.
