Today we’re putting the spotlight on Dan O’Brien’s latest project: Mobsters, Monsters & Nazis: a collaboration between the author and Steve Ferchaud, who illustrated Conspirators of the Lost Sock Army and the Loose Change Collection Agency.
About Mobsters, Monsters & Nazis:
Blending noir, hardboiled detective stories, and pulp comics, Mobsters, Monsters & Nazis follows private investigator Derrick Diamond as he searches for an elusive object: a strange device that the Nazis need for their nefarious experiments. Aided by Ava Harpy, a lounge singer at the Yellow Monarch, they dive deep into the underbelly of the city, uncovering a sordid plot that is much larger than they could have possibly imagined.
If you love illustrated works, pulp comics, and a little bit of Lovecraft in your stories, then what are you waiting for?
Today we’re also revealing sketches for some of the interior illustrations (which will be black and white) of the first issue. Mobsters, Monsters & Nazis will be released as six issues (eBooks) starting on Halloween. It is influenced by film noir, pulp comics, and an abiding love of Lovecraft. It is now available for pre-order and author Dan O’Brien will be promoting it heavily starting October. He would love to hear what you think of it so far! Visit him at his blog, on Twitter, or follow him on Goodreads.
