THE LIVING DEATH OF LEONARD FISK
Writer / Creator SHAD CLARK
Art MATTIAS HAGGSTROM
With his phantasmagoric crime spree feeling like a bad dream, recovering deadbeat Leonard Fisk is given a second chance at life outside the asylum–if he helps with a USDA investigation into an alleged cannibal underground of private supper clubs, human trafficking and human(e) meat. Soon enough, Leonard is welcomed into the Carnies, a motley coterie of cannibals who see him as one of their own, even if he’s trying not to eat anyone anymore. Leonard quickly learns the Carnies have been forced into a beef with the ultraviolent Los Cráneos cartel after dealings went south with their main supplier, El Sanguinario, a highly prolific serial killer who rounds up ‘livestock’ while posing as a coyote. Left circling the drain of an imminent bloodbath, Leonard is dead meat–unless he goes off his meds and starts listening to his own ghost again.
Think DONNIE DARKO meets BREAKING BAD by way of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, and with a title character that's equal parts Scott Pilgrim and Norman Bates.
