LAS VEGAS - April 14, 2014 - PRLog -- Low-rent private detective Ira Avery didn’t know what he was getting himself into when he agreed to take on the case of missing photojournalist Savannah Loy. In a city like San Hannibal, however, nothing is as it seems, and everybody—from Loy’s meathead boyfriend to punk rock singer Diane Thrax—has something to hide.

Debuting in comic book stores everywhere on April 16, San Hannibal is a five-issue retro-futuristic, hard-boiled crime series created by Dan Schkade, with art in the first issue by JD Faith. Featuring a look and feel unlike anything else—call it “neon noir”—San Hannibal is as visually daring as it is entirely engrossing.

Critics are already raving about the debut issue. Derek Royal of the Comics Alternative Podcast says the “neon intensity” of the artwork underscores “a noir tone. It’s like a harsh light has been cast on the subject matter, distorting appearances and affecting the way that Avery sees the world surrounding his missing journalist.” Gordon Dymowski of Blog THIS, Pal! calls San Hannibal “a sharp mix of futuristic cool and hard-edged detective fiction.” And Dustin Cabeal of Comic Bastards declares, “Not only do I want to return to San Hannibal, I wish I never had to leave.”

Schkade, writes and/or draws the web-based comics The Fowl and The Adventures of Stop and Go at Faith created the superhero webcomic Acrobat and illustrates the coming-of-age sci-fi thriller Just Another Sheep at

San Hannibal #1 is priced at $2.99 and will be available in comic book stores as well as digital outlets on April 16. For more information, visit To find a comic book retailer near you, call 1-888-COMIC-BOOK or visit
