PRAISE FOR BEZKAMP

Bezkamp is a delightful YA sci-fi world of alien races, unique dialects, family, adventure, and following your star. ”
Johnnie Christmas, #1 New York Times best-selling cartoonist on Firebug, Alien 3, and Angel Catbird. 

“Sattin and Hickman seamlessly create a gloriously nuanced system of contradictions with this stunning graphic novel. I felt drawn into its sequential stew from panel one, and it was a feast for the eyes and mind.”
John Jennings, Eisner Award winning scholar and artist of Octavia E. Butler's Kindred graphic novel.

“Sattin and Hickman have skillfully crafted an inventive, action-filled sci-fi adventure that simultaneously wrestles with family trauma, environmental destruction, and the danger of destroying history. I highly recommend it!.”
Maia Kobabe, creator of Gender Queer: A Memoir

“If you need a mind-blowing, gorgeous graphic novel...I recommend Bezkamp.
Annalee Newitz, Lambda award-winning author of The Future of Another Timeline and Autonomous; founder of io9

“BezKamp is a story worth telling today. It is worth reading, worth feeling, and worth allowing it to become a part of you. It is worth putting into the collective headspace. We affect the world around us. The world around us affects us. ”

WHEN STORES OF GLINT — the mineral that keeps the people on the planet Mora alive — start to run low, pit workers are pressed into overdrive for the good of their world. But one worker had dreams of another life, launching him into an adventure he could never have imagined. (Mar. 2019)

PRAISE FOR GLINT

“Glint pulls you right in and never lets up for a moment. Sattin and McGinty have crafted an ambitious, lyrical, and relevant adventure tale full of rich characters and a texture, layered world. Creatures, conspiracies, battles, and friendship. And an emotional core that will leave you wanting more.”
–Harvey Award winner Mariah McCourt, creator of Stitched and New York Times bestselling author of True Blood: All Together Now

“Sattin and McGinty’s Glint is an addictive tour de force that harkens back to the works of Brian Jacques’ Redwall, Ursula K. Le Quin’s Earthsea Trilogy, and Jim Henson’s Dark Crystal. A masterful work of rebellion, it’s filled with rousing speeches, edge-of-your-seat adventure, treachery, and danger. Glint dares to ask the question: how much is hope worth to you?”
David Gallaher, Harvey Award-winning writer of The Only Living Girl, The Only Living Boy, High Moon, and Box 13

 

“A sweeping sci-fi adventure, rich with imagination and mystery.”
Ben Costa, creator of Rickety Stitch

“Reading Glint is like watching a Saturday morning cartoon rerun from a show you forgot existed. Sattin’s fun dialogue bounces effortlessly from McGinty’s dynamic illustrations which are brought to life by Kays’ warm, inviting colors. Rarely is there such harmony between creators. Glint is something special.”
S.M. Vidaurri, creator of Iscariot and Iron: Or the War After

 

“Reading Glint is good training for being able to see past the noisy squabbling of individuals towards the bigger systems, structures, and power dynamics in play. Or a gorgeously drawn and high energy other-world adventure. Your pick! But if I wanted a kid to ask critical questions about why the world isn’t as it should be, and who is benefiting and who is being hurt, without hitting them over the head with it, I might slip them this book.”
–Thi Bui, author of The Best We Could Do, illustrator of A Different Pond

 

“An incredibly detailed sci-fi/fantasy tale… For such a multi-layered story, one doesn’t have to dig too deep to strike narrative gold—or glint, in this case.”
Doom Rocket

"Cormac McCarthy-meets-Watership Down."

—THE NERDIST

"Superbly written by Sattin...and beautifully illustrated by Koehler."

— PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

  

Written by Samuel Sattin, Art by Chris Koehler

 

WHAT IF A BIO-TERROR AGENT wiped out most of humanity, and our domesticated animals were left in charge? How would our dogs and cats set about ruling and rebuilding the world?

 

From acclaimed novelist Samuel Sattin and award-winning illustrator Chris Koehler comes LEGEND, where cat technology rules, dogs partner with hawks,and humans may be the most beastly creatures of all.

PRAISE FOR LEGEND

"This gleeful genre mashup (featuring Lovecraftian monsters, armored cats, and so on) is captured by Koehler’s gorgeous, Rockwellian art - also designed to mimic dogs’ unique, chromatic vision of the world." — ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

"Sam Sattin and Chris Koehler’s Legend is sort of like a post-apocalyptic Watership Down, except somehow even weirder than that elevator pitch sounds." — io9

"[LEGEND] will enthrall you… combines the arduous paths of The Fellowship of the Ring with the detritus-based visual evocativeness of Mad Max to create a story that will make any pet-lover hold their furry buddy close for fear they might lose them when the world ends." — VULTURE

"Writer Samuel Sattin and artist Chris Koehler have truly delivered an epic masterpiece. Seriously, you need to read this comic book. Koehler’s art is gorgeous and the flashbacks that are drawn by Sarah Hawkinson are stunning. Without a doubt, this is one of the year’s best books." — THE NERDIST

"Superbly written by Sattin (The Silent End; League of Somebodies) and beautifully illustrated...It’s not simply a great what-if story, but a close examination of how societies evolve." — PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY

"Fascinating." — VOL 1 BROOKLYN

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"What happens when you combine the animalistic focus of HOMEWORD BOUND with the difficulty of forging a new world in the ashes of the old?"

— COMICS ALLIANCE

"I could say that LEGEND is a post-apocalyptic Watership Down with dogs and cats and that might be enough. Instead I'll say that the story is fun, scary, and poignant, and the art absolutely gorgeous, melancholy, and menacing. I'm utterly and hopelessly hooked." — Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Disappearance at Devil's Rock

"A tale of pets and wildlife fighting back against Lovecraftian horrors."

— NPR

"Just lovely. Legend is a haunting post-apocalyptic tale, set in a community of tails. This captivating, fully realized canine fable takes its place beside Grant Morrison’s WE3 and Brian K. Vaughn’s Pride of Baghdad, while creating its own new animist mythos. This is a title to watch for." — NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Mat Johnson

"Superbly written by Sattin (The Silent End; League of Somebodies) and beautifully illustrated...It’s not simply a great what-if story, but a close examination of how societies evolve." — PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY

"A brutal saga of dogs and cats attempting to rebuild the world….I don’t know about you, but that sounds like the visceral, mature twist on The Incredible Journey I’ve been waiting for." — THE NERDIST

"A harrowing, imaginative new comic... Sattin plays inventively with genre, plying anthropomorphic animals with survivalist fantasy. Koehler’s illustrations inject the most noble and amiable qualities of canines onto the page, cast with immaculate shading and detail recalling Jae Lee and Charles Burns.Legend is poised to join the company of such lauded animal epics as The Plague Dogs, Watership Down and Pride of Baghdad with its own distinct tone." — PASTE MAGAZINE

"Samuel Sattin and Chris Koehler's LEGEND is a lot like what would happen if Harlan Ellison wrote CALL OF THE WILD, while being possessed by Cthulhu. It's an epic tale of loyalty, courage, and defiance." — David Gallaher, THE ONLY LIVING BOY

"You would be foolish to pass up the opportunity to check out Legend."

"Spectacular." — COMICS BEAT

"Thought-provoking." — CATSTER

Thanks to remarkable world-building and a dynamic collaborative effort, Sattin and Koehler have crafted a fantastic adventure" — BROKEN FRONTIER

 

"Like a fever dream mashup of Frazer Irving’s artwork covering Beasts of Burden... Spooky [and] soulful. Impressive." — NEWSARAMA

"Fascinating." — THE NERD MACHINE

 

"In a scant 21 pages, Sattin and Koehler have made me care more about a new cast of characters than those in long-established series on the newsstands in quite some time. And I want to know ‘what’s next.'" — FREAK SUGAR

"A remarkably well-crafted book young adult novel, perfect for dark and stormy Halloween season ahead. It’s both unique and splendid.​”

—David Gallaher, author of THE ONLY LIVING BOY and HIGH MOON​

 

“This novel is amazing – horror writing at its finest…The Silent End feels like a modern day Lovecraft novel, with sarcasm and wit added in for good measure.” —Kelly Gerlach, DREAD CENTRAL (5 Stars)

 

"The care with which Sattin establishes a sense of “place” is one of The Silent End‘s strongest suits, with Mossglow worthy of joining the ranks of iconically established locales such as Buffy Summers’ Sunnydale and LOST’s mysterious Island…the narrative is full of Lindelof-ian twists, and Lynch-ian menace, but what truly sets The Silent End apart is Sattin’s fully realized characters, and the care with which he explores and expands upon their relationships with one another: romantic, platonic, and parental. Characters are driven, first and foremost, by friendships and enmities which breathe life into a story about monsters, murder, and the indignities of high school…The Silent End offers a rare thrill in that glutted field of mediocre young adult fiction, horror, and fantasy: A story which transcends genre and narrative trappings, leaving you guessing until the very end, and wanting more, long after that.”

—Rafi Schwartz, HEEB MAGAZINE​

 

“Entertaining…A very imaginative horror story for all ages.”
—Frank Michaels Errington,
CEMETARY DANCE

THE SILENT END

In a mist-soaked town in the Pacific Northwest three teenagers find themselves pitted against an unearthly menace that dwells beneath the foundations of their high school...

Eberstark is an outcast and he's tired of pretending everything is fine. His mother disappeared almost a year ago after a long battle with depression. His father is conducting experiments and running around town in the middle of night with a mysterious man known only as The Hat, ranting to Eberstark about beasts no one else can see.

Then on Halloween night, Eberstark, alongside his only friends Lexi and Gus, discovers something in the woods to challenge his father's apparent insanity: a wounded monster. Rather than stir the town into a frenzy, the three friends hide the creature and are pulled into a web of conspiracy, dream-logic, and death. Faced down by living trucks, mirror-dwelling psychopaths, and hellish entities who lurk behind friendly faces, Eberstark, Lexi, and Gus find themselves battling to save not just themselves, but the soul of their quiet little town.


PRAISE FOR THE SILENT END

 

A Kirkus September Speculative Fiction Reading Pick

 

“Samuel Sattin has written a young adult novel that’s right over the plate for pop culture fans.”

—Hannah Means Shannon, BLEEDING COOL

 

"Imagine if Halloween had been written by The Kids in The Hall instead of John Carpenter and you start to understand the wild, mesmerizing mash up that is The Silent End."

VICTOR LAVALLE, author of The Devil in Silver

"Do not read this at night. Do not read this alone. But read it. Now."
SEAN BEAUDOIN, author of The Infects

 

“The Silent End is a tale perfect for Halloween and geeks…an outstandingly fun read.”

—James Floyd Kelly, GEEKDAD

 

“Have you ever woken up in the middle of night and wondered if there really are creatures out there that go “bump” in the night? Well, this book won’t help with that. Actually, it’ll probably just encourage the feeling even more. The Silent End is…ready to scare your pants off as it takes you on a journey with three high school kids who discover an unexpected creature in the woods, and it not only unravels their world but shows them that things aren’t always what they seem.”
—Stacie Sells,
THE MARY SUE

 

“Samuel Sattin’s The Silent End is smart yet accessible, creepy and hilarious, a vividly told novel both teens and adults will enjoy.”

—David Gutowski, LARGEHEARTED BOY

 

“If you're looking for a good horror novel, you'll want to keep your eye out for this one.”

—Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero, COMIC VINE


"I dreamed I climbed into a 1950s sci-fi rocket ship with Thomas Pynchon, Charles Dickens, H.P. Lovecraft, Jonathan Lethem, Rebalais, and the crew from Monty Python. You can't dream my dream, but you can get everything it gave me. All you've got to do is read Samuel Sattin."

D. FOY, author of Made to Break

 

“Some of the best horror tales tease what’s behind the curtain, giving the reader a taste of what to expect while keeping the reader on uneasy ground and wobbly footing. From the mystery of the Hat and why Eberstark’s dad is cavorting with him to the shifting reality of the town itself, Sattin doesn’t let readers feel any sort of complacency. This unease about the nature of reality parallels nicely with the struggles the book’s teenage protagonists are facing.

—Jed W. Harris-Keith, FREAK SUGAR

 

“Deeply melancholy, a little frightening…Samuel Sattin has written The Silent End for teenagers who are actually teenagers.”

—J. Wilbanks, GALLEYWAMPUS

 

“A creeptacular novel written in the style of Stephen King and which reminds me strongly of The Tommyknockers….It’s a masterful combination of horror as well as Young Adult literature which is likely to leave readers scared of their own shadows for a week. After all, you never know what’s hiding in them.”
BOOKIE MONSTER (5 out of 5 Bookies)

LEAGUE OF SOMEBODIES

 

Lenard Sikophsky’s father has been feeding him plutonium since the age of six in the hopes of making him the world’s first bona fide superhero. First, he must pass the unusual tests of manhood locked in the centuries old tomb, The Manaton, a secret relic passed down for generations. Falling in love with the beautiful, compulsively suicidal Laura Moskowitz doesn’t make his life any easier. But with the guidance of the Sikophsky men, the antiquated rulebook, and of course a healthy amount of plutonium, Lenard accepts his fate as an exactor of justice. . . .

 

Twenty years later, Lenard’s son Nemo is introduced to the same destiny as his father, only this time the violent entity called THEY are in dangerous pursuit. Lenard’s life and the legacy of his family are put to the test when he is forced to defend everything he loves.

 

PRAISE FOR  LEAGUE OF SOMEBODIES

 

"One of the most important novels of 2013."

--POP MATTERS

 

"League of Somebodies is so rich with originality that it's actually radioactive. If you captured Owen Meany in a literary time machine and fed him a strict diet of comic books and plutonium, you would come up with a main character a hell of a lot more well-adjusted than Lenard Sikophsky. Read at your own risk and beware: laughter is the first sign of infection."

Mat Johnson, author of Pym

 

“If there was an alternate reality where comics god Jack Kirby taught a postgrad "religion and superfamilies" lecture, this would be Sam Sattin's final paper.”

Evan Narcisse, Kotaku

 

"How to explain this mystic monster League of Somebodies? Part old-school epic, part coming-of-age tale, part comedy in the spirit of Mel Brooks's Young Frankenstein . . . Samuel Sattin is a mad scientist!"

Victor LaValle, author of Big Machine and The Devil in Silver


"League of Somebodies...has been earning praise as a smart look at hero-making that’s part old-school epic, part coming-of-age tale, and part comedy.
Tim Donnelly,
New York Post
