On Wednesday, August 25th, Source Point Press is releasing the debut issue of SUICIDE JOCKEYS! Screenwriter/Ringo Award-winning creator/writer Rylend Grant has reteamed with artist Davi Leon Dias, colorist Iwan Joko Triyono, letterer HdE, and producer RJ Hendricks (of Rising Spirit Entertainment), all of whom helped bring his Ringo award-winning political action thriller Aberrant to life. Dias, Triyono, and HdE are also featured on his successfully-funded Kickstarter campaign for THE PEACEKEEPERS.
Rylend describes Suicide Jockeys as diverse cast Tokusatsu for the contemporary action movie fan. It’s essentially Voltron meets The Fast and the Furious… with an extra dollop of heart and soul.
Suicide Jockeys is a Tokusatsu comic through and through. Inspired by classic Japanese action television like Ultraman and Super Sentai, Grant teamed with Toku Expert Brad Warner, who previously worked for over a decade in Japan as an executive for Tsuburaya Productions.
“Brad is our very own Tokusatsu historian/expert. While I work to make sure Suicide Jockeys appeals to a hungry American action movie audience, he’s making sure diehard Tokusatsu fans will have an authentic experience,” says Grant.
Here’s a look at the covers, storyline, and preview pages for

SUICIDE JOCKEYS #1
In Shops: Aug 25, 2021
Ten years after a catastrophic mission gone wrong, Denver Wallace, leader of the Suicide Jockeys – a poor, usually drunken, almost certainly mentally ill crew of monster-fighting, tank-and-aircraft-piloting suckers – must pick himself up off the proverbial and literal floors, slap his estranged, desperately-fractured team back together, and right what once went wrong.
