FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(July 21st, 2015 – Bellingham, WA)
|Space Goat Publishing has announced the hiring of formerDark Horse editor Dave Land to help expand the company’s publishing slate, including their best-selling titles in the Evil Dead Universe. Editor Land joins the recently announced Darren Vincenzo and Publisher Dave Olbrich as Space Goat gears up for a solid 2016.“It’s my job to keep the trains running on time! Which is more difficult than it sounds because unlike trains comics don’t have tracks,” said Land. Dave brings over 15 years of experience editing comics and ensuring their timely release to the public. Land rose to the title of Senior Editor at Dark Horse Comics, overseeing titles such as Star Wars, Tony Millionaire’s Sock Monkey, Sergio Aragonés Groo, and Conan. His books have won three Eisners and one Harvey and he has had the great fortune to work with two successive Russ Manning award winners in 2003 and 2004.Evil Dead 2 fans need not worry, because these books are in the hands of a fellow fan.
“In my younger days, I worked at a video store. This was back in the ’80s and ’90s. It was there that I got my first exposure to the world of Evil Dead with Evil Dead 2. I’d never seen anything like it. I loved it instantly!”
“I worked with Dave on a few projects when he was at Dark Horse,” Space Goat publisher Shon Bury says. “I was always impressed with his ability to keep things moving forward, even under tough circumstances. When it was time to bring in editorial help on Evil Dead 2, I knew Dave was the guy. And I was right.”
The new anthology mini-series will feature original stories set in the ED2U from Jeff Mariotte & Marsheila Rockwell, Ivan Cohen, Justin Peniston, Georgia Ball, and Frank Hannah – the writer of Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn.
