Satanic Hell #1 is out! You can see a preview of it and pick it up here on Comixology. When Death Priest, Dante, and Exodus get a call about a tour of Texas, they see it as the last chance to save their struggling metal band, Satanic Hell. Once in Texas, they discover the state is under the rule of religious fanatics and they must face their own version of hell if they want to succeed. If you liked Punk Rock Jesus, you'll love this seven-issue satirical epic from Alterna Comics. Support indie comics and let me know what your thoughts are!

Here's some of the art of Satanic Hell.

Thanks for checking it out!

@wolverine08@rd189 Thanks! @SuperStar_sketcher Great to hear. I love indies too and I'm always finding new amazing series. I'm currently reading Skull Kickers, a well-written monster-killing fantasy with incredible art. Its been around for awhile, but I just stumbled onto it and am thoroughly addicted.

@battle_forum_junkie The colors in the series have been receiving great reactions. Jimmy Kerast's colors bring a unique, eerie style that amplifies the story. He's an outstanding artist - you can check out his work at Kerast.

Here's a preview of the cover of Satanic Hell, a series we've been working on for a couple years and its finally complete. The team includes illustrator Kevin Enhart (215 Ink, Hound Comics), colorist Jimmy Kerast (Markosia, Akileos), letterer E.T. Dollman (Image, Arcana, Ape), and myself as the writer. Initially we self-published a few issues. It did well and we decided to release it through an established indie, so we redid the letters, gave it some new edits and a new cover. Self-publishing is a great way to go for indie-creators. In our case, we felt the access to readers that an established indie brings was worth it.

So what's the story about? Satanic Hell is a seven-issue satircal epic about a metal band that gets trapped in a dystopian Texas run by a fanatical religious council. The monthly series will be released Nov 19 on the indie publisher Alterna Comics through Comixology. What do you think? If this looks cool to you, we would appreciate any support in spreading the word! Let me know if you have any questions about making comics as well.

Just checked it out and it is fantastic.Congrats on completing such a masterpiece! I know making comics is like climbing a mountain with giants throwing boulders at you with each step. Besides having a top-notch comic, what were the key things you did that made your kickstarter become so successful? And how did you get CBR and Bleeding Cool to pay attention to you? Did they pick up on it after it got some publicity?

the youtube comments for that video are hilarious

They are :) It appears mermaids are the new bigfoot. I saw the doc - entertaining. It's just sad though how easily people are duped. Explains a lot about why we're still wasting energy defending basic science like evolution, the age of the earth, global warming... Wired: Mermaids Embody the Rotting Carcass of Science TV
