Soon to be a feature film! Assaut survivor Emmie wants to change the world by creating her own superhero persona. Unfortunately her plans are limited, as being a hero takes more than a costume. In a strange twist of fate, Emmie forms an agreement with the most unlikely crime-fighting partner you could imagine. Now she can lay her own brand of twisted justice down on sexual predators.
Words by El Torres and screenwriter Jennifer Van Gessel, issue #1 features art by acclaimed artist Gabriel Hernandez Walta (Marvel’s Magneto, Uncanny X-Men, The Vision… and also The Veil and The Suicide Forest!) with interior pages by Nacho Tenorio and Sergio Mora (Dark Shadows, Army of Darkness, Rogues: Odd Parenthood).
To celebrate the release of the comic book based on the Unleash screenplay, Far For Everything Films presents a short teaser, shot in Sydney. Below is a teaser for the short teaser film 🙂

Alan is just a bodyguard trying to make a living. But this is the future, and to survive Alan Dracon must deal with high-tech industrial moguls, genetically modified organisms… and seductive corporates. And most of them want him dead.
Action and adventure in the not-so-near future brought to you by Stefano Martino (George R.R. Martin’s Doorways, Doctor Who).
Alan Dracon is the dear creation of Italian artist Stefano Martino, who worked on comic series such as Doctor Who, Warlord of Mars, Catwoman and George R.R. Martin’s Doorways. He is working on the European market on titles as Nosferatu and Oracle, but he never forgot his creator-owned sci-fi series Alan Dracon.

Alexandra Wagner is confined in an expensive asylum. She murdered her brother when she was a child, and has been jumping from an institution to another, thinking she’s protecting our world against monsters called The Feeders with the help of her deceased brother. Thomas Hayes is her psychiatrist, and he believes she’s totally mad.
Well, she’s totally mad. But she’s also right.
This volume compiles the acclaimed and really hard-to-find horror masterwork by El Torres and Guillermo Sanna!
This is what reviewers say about Straitjacket:
“The story inside was anything but common. El Torres strikes again (…) If you’re into horror or maybe you just like stories about the insane, then you’ll definitely want to check out Straitjacket.”
—Dustin Cabeal, Comic Bastards
“Horror is hit-or-miss for me, more so the cinematic kind. The absolute best depictions are the ones that play with your mind, have you delve deep into your psyche, so much so that you question reality as we know it after viewing.(…) The first entry to this four-part tale deserves an 8.5 out of 10 on the crazy scale!”
—Paul Miranda, Comic Asylum
“Considering that Torres is the current best horror writer in comics (yeah, I said it), it’s kind of neat that he takes one of his older horror comics (The Veil) and puts it in the same universe as this one. I love shit like that.”
_Greg Burgas, Comic Book Resources
“This story is amazingly well written and explores the boundaries of a world we both perceive and don’t at the same time. It makes us question what we believe in and in the treatment of those deemed different than ourselves. Horror has a new master and that’s El Torres.”
—Steven Leitman, Reading with a Flight Ring
“El Torres writes a stellar, gripping first issue to a series that looks to be the beginnings of a modern comics masterpiece of horror (…) This story is mesmerizing, and paired with Guillermo Sanna’s pencils, this book becomes an absolute home run(…) If Amigo Comics keeps this up, they will become the new face of horror in the comics industry. This book has “movie adaptation” written all over it.
RATING: 10 out of 10. “
