Created and Written: Kelly Bender (me)
Illustrations & Inks: Bryant Christopher Yini
Colors:Pascal Verhoef
Letters: Micah Myers

SADISTIC just got picked up by EVIL MOOSE COMICS!!   

This comic book is guaranteed published!  First in an anthology story (8 pages) coming out in March 2014 and then as a 4 issue Miniseries coming out Summer 2014!!


Steals other dying peoples souls to maintain his own life. Every time "Sadistic" is dying or dead his body automatically teleports anywhere in the world to another dying persons place and absorbs their soul to stay alive.

Since almost 3 people in the world die each and every second, he could be "re-born" anywhere. Knowing he will always comeback after dying has made "Sadistic" very unpredictable and unstable.

Has above normal strength and tough skin, also has other powers he has yet to show due to the fact that he is not afraid to die.

SADISTIC Anthology into story:

In this short story SADISTIC has broken into the mansion of the costumed Hero called the SHRIKE and gives him a choice... his daughters life or his gadgets.

In the American wild west, Occultist Josephus Arcane unlocks more keys to the symbols found within the occult system than any other human being known. Inspired by his discoveries, he writes volume upon volume on his findings and knowledge. The Opus of his work leads directly to the throne room of Hell itself where he acquires an audience with Satan. Jealous of Josephus' knowledge and covetous of certain powers he has unlocked, Satan tries to fool him into accepting his daughter for Josephus' Grimmoire which contains the key he needs to take back heaven. Josephus refuses the exchange and in turn, Satan takes what he believes is the right book and curses the future Arcane offspring. Years later after several wives and several sons, Josephus leaves and is never again seen by mortal men. Growing up feared and bewitched, his sons display specific dark abilities making them outcast among men. The Arcane Brothers, John, Joshua, Joseph, Jeremiah and Jesus are brought together to fulfill the work their father left for them and intercede in the war between Satan and God and determine who will inherit the “keys to the kingdom."

"Blood In. Blood Out." mature comic book preview pages Caution Adult Language and Nudity!!!!

"Blood In. Blood Out."

“Blood In. Blood Out.” is a term used by many urban gangs. What it means is that the only way into the gang is by killing somebody for them and the only way out is by being killed. 

This comic book is about a Brooklyn gang and the dealings they have with other gangs, their own drug dealers, prostitutes and crew.  It’s about the gang’s relationship with the crooked cops walking the beat, the undercover cops and FBI agents trying to bring them down and other people from the neighborhood who are just trying to survive.

It is a gritty raw look at urban gang life and what it takes to run a gang empire and also what it takes to bring it all tumbling down.

It’s “The Wire” meets “The Sopranos” with an urban flare.  

Due to the subject matter this is a mature rated comic book.
