Following up the sell out of Tomboy #1, Damon Clark and Alyzia Zherno‘s The Circle #1 sells out completely at Diamond Comic Distributors. The occult horror thriller has clearly struck a nerve with fans.
The Circle revolves around a boy named Christian, a recent transplant to the sleepy coastal town of Shell Bay. What begins as playful shenanigans with “the weird kids” turns deadly dark as satanic spells unleash a darkness that can only be stopped by the ritualistic death of his “Circle” of friends.
In reaction to the news that #1 sold out, writer Damon Clark comments, “When I first heard issue #1 sold out, I thought there was no way this could be true. What kind of joke is this, am I being Punked? Ashton? Seriously, thanks to anyone that bought the book and thanks to Action Lab for putting it out there. I hope you enjoyed #1, ’cause that was only the introduction, it only gets crazier from there.“
THE CIRCLE #1 . Writer: Damon Clark Artist: Alyzia Zherno Cover Artists: Alyzia Zherno, Ivan Shavrin
After the death of his mother, Christian moves with his single father to the sleepy coastal town of Shell Bay. Upon being bullied at his new school, he’s quickly befriended by the group of “weird” kids. But what Christian doesn’t know is that their playful occult shenanigans may actually be rituals that damn his soul!
