The guys over at YVETTE AVENUE PRODUCTIONS have sent us a cool peek at their upcoming comic, THE VIGILANTE PROJECT. While the book debuts at L.A.’s COMIKAZE EXPO, the gang is already hard at work adapting it for the screen. Here’s their Press release with a teaser slide.
VIGILANTE PROJECT SET TO LAUNCH NOVEMBER 5 2011
October 17, 2011.
The California-based company, Yvette Avenue Productions is today announcing the long-awaited “Vigilante Project: The Confessional” – an independent comic book that will officially launch November 5, 2011 at the Comikaze Expo being held in Los Angeles at the Convention Center.
Vigilante Project is the inventive child of creators Chris Dickens and Phil Morgenthaler. Friends since Junior High School, they grew up as neighbors on a street called Yvette Avenue. For Vigilante Project: The Confessional they relied heavily on the experience and knowledge of Lars Swearingen III of Phoenix Fire Entertainment. Together they formulated an amazing, international team of talent consisting of Chris Campana who supplies pencils,
Nik Poliwko providing inks, Jarrett Arthur contributing color, and Clayton Neal adapting the script to comic book format.
Vigilante Project: The Confessional will début fascinating and unique characters living separate, colorful lives. However, at the heart of every issue is Father Charlie Contreras, a middle-aged, Latino priest at St. Jude Catholic Church in New York City. Co-Creator Phil Morgenthaler states “We liked the Father Contreras character so much, that he became the
central figure of the comic book.”
The primary story arc and the Vigilante Project film follow Alvin Gentry, an ordinary college student with a dark past, as he tracks down the man responsible for the kidnap, rape, and murder of his sister. When he discovers that there is more to his sister’s disappearance than meets the eye, Alvin must take on more than he ever expected to save another little girl
being held by the same man.
The film which will be completed at a later date has already started to take shape and Chris Dickens, Executive Producer is proud to announce the script’s completion. He states “It’s new, exciting, and best of all we have a script ready to go and talent attached.”
Vigilante Project is also proud to announce that they have partnered with, Killing The Grizzly, a Los Angeles literary agency that represents both film and graphic novels. Chris Dickens said “Needless to say, we’re excited and can’t wait to see where we go from here. We couldn’t have partnered up with a better agency to represent who we are, and what we’re about.”
