Former FBI agent Richard Wright will go deep-undercover in the brand-new AMERICAN CARNAGE

Available today!

 

A new, original series begins today from writer Bryan Edward hill (Ash Vs. Evil Dead, Titans, Postal)  and artist Leandro Fernandez (Punisher: Max, The Old Guard). This fictional tale will feel more relevant than ever as it roots itself in present political and social issues while striving to open up a dialogue about fear in America, and how it is used to gather or divide.

The series focuses on biracial ex-FBI agent Richard Wright, who is asked by a former colleague to go undercover to infiltrate a white supremacy group who they believe murdered another agent. Wright, who is white-passing, does this and in the process becomes deeply embedded into their world.

 

In order to create an authentic story, true to the experiences of our world today, Hill worked extensively to speak with and attempt to understand the mentality of similar extremist groups. The result is a story that is complex, at times dangerous and unsettling, but a true representation of the fear that Americans are experiencing on a daily basis.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
