“We basically came up with the concept of a government agency that protects us from vampires, werewolves, witches, zombies etc, and how all the monsters decide to join forces and take over the world.”

Ryan Scifrin, writer and director of the popular cult film Abominable, revealed the secrets behind his newest project in an interview on ComicMonsters.com, “Where Monsters Dwell!” SPOOKS originated as a movie concept which Schifrin described as “a big epic fantasy action movie that is a love letter to my favorite holiday.” A few years back he and film producer Daniel Alter (Hitman) arrived at the idea over coffee. They decided that, as an entirely original concept without any existing media tie-ins, it should be developed as a comic book series first.

Schifrin began assembling a creative team to develop the four-issue series, which will debut from Devil’s Due Publishing in February 2008. Acclaimed fantasy author R.A. Salvatore (DemonWars) and his sons, Bryan and Geno, came aboard to help develop the monsters and their supernatural roots. Comic book writer Larry Hama (G.I. Joe) joined the team to script the series and add military realism. Artist Adam Archer (Friday the 13th) will provide the artwork, with colors by Jonny Rench.

Following its four-issue run, SPOOKS will be collected into a graphic novel with bonus content added. The full transcript of Schifrin’s interview—with details on the origins of the series--can be found at http://www.comicmonsters.com/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=867.
