|(Writer/Co-Creator - Clown Town; Roadkill du Jour; The Blind Eye; William Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus)|
|Kevin LaPorte is the Mobile, Alabama-based writer and co-creator of genre comics with a horror bent - Clown Town, The Blind Eye (both with artist Amanda Rachels), and the currently in-development Last Ride for Horsemen (with artist Nathan Smith) and Roadkill du Jour (with artist Shawn Harbin)! |
The worlds Kevin creates range from dark carnivals overrun by killer clowns violently avenging abused children (Clown Town) to dying frontier towns in the Old West beset by Steampunk versions of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (Last Ride for Horsemen) to the bayou territory of a lone motorcycle gangster seeking vengeance for his cursed appetite for street meat and the slaughter of his brothers-in-arms (Roadkill du Jour)! Most recently, Kevin contributed poetry and lyrics to Ancients & Warriors: The Sketch Art of Gavin Michelli, featuring the figure work of collaborator, Gavin Michelli. He is also adapting, with artist Amanda Rachels, Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus to comic form via a unique, genre setting that perfectly preserves the Bard’s original dialogue within an epic science fantasy!
This year at Wizard World NOLA, Kevin will have available the FULL 124-page Clown Town Graphic Novel, the 84-page Ancients & Warriors: The Sketch Art of Gavin Michelli, and various anthologies featuring a range of short horror stories (The Gathering & Indie Comics Magazine)!
