MILWAUKIE, Ore., (October 19, 2020)—From the great mind of Eisner-nominated Matt Lesniewski (The Freak, Crimson Flower) and colorist Carlos Badilla (The Witcher, EC Archives) comes the new sci-fi/horror graphic novel Static arriving April 2021.

Emmett never thought his life would be like this. Especially not for this long. Every day is the same, and it’s a living hell. The eccentric scientist’s muscle-for-hire will do anything to break from a decade’s long cycle of déjà vu. When Emmett unknowingly causes the spark that brings his life to a boiling point, a domino effect of chaotic events leads to an ironic fate.

“Before ever writing or drawing a thing, I had been thinking about the idea for this story for several years. It went through many different iterations, but the core idea never went away: a character who one day realized their life had passed them by, leaving them ‘stuck’ in place all this time with no idea how to break from the cycle they’ve been in all these years. Hence, the title Static. Ironically, this story would sometimes leave my mind, but it always came back, never really going anywhere.”—Matt Lesniewski

Static arrives in comic shops April 28, 2021, and bookstores May 11, 2021. Pre-order now on AmazonBarnes and Noble, or at your local comic shop.

Praise for The Freak:

“Lesniewski is a true original–straight out of the gate he has established himself as a unique voice and visual storyteller like no other.”—Matt Kindt

“It’s a delight for the eyes to decipher every intricate detail, mirroring perfectly the messy internal life that the Freak exists within, and an eye-grabbing tour de force in an impressive debut.” – Comics Beat

“The art here’s exquisite. The black-and-white linework fills every panel with details like a spider with its web, but the action’s never confused or chaotic.”—The Comics Journal
