over 1 year ago – Wed, Aug 25, 2021 at 09:49:28 AM

Hey Jumpers,

I'm writing to let you know that the first issue of my latest and greatest comic book series - a delightfully twisted Tokusatsu action joint, titled SUICIDE JOCKEYS - hits comic shops TOMORROW... Wednesday, August 25th!

If you can't make it to a comic shop, you can easily have the book shipped directly to your home by ordering online via MIDTOWN COMICS... or you can download the digital version of the book via Amazon or Comixology.

SUICIDE JOCKEYS will run for 4 issues, so tell your shop to order it every month.

Early reviews on the book have been overwhelmingly positive and flattering:

"You want action? Gripping storytelling? SUICIDE JOCKEYS delivers on every level. It’s guaranteed to make every reader a fan. You’ll be in it up to your beans and franks. Source Point Press has a monster of a series on their hands and you don’t want to miss it!"

-Jason Bennett - PopCultHQ

"Brilliant storytelling. High octane action. Delivered on an elevated level I could never imagine possible. This book is about as perfect as it gets."

-Brain Wayne -
Cheers to Comics

“Something to behold... Suicide Jockeys #1 entices readers with an escapist fantasy anyone in a post-2020 world would want to dive intoReading Suicide Jockeys #1 feels like experiencing a science-fiction action movie firsthand!"

-Jake Palermo - Monkeys Fighting Robots

Check out a full review over at PopCultHQ and peep the official press release from Source Point Press below. Trust me, you're in for quite a ride with this one!

Strap in for tokusatsu action with Suicide Jockeys from screenwriter/Ringo Award-winner Rylend Grant and Source Point Press

Ten years after a catastrophic mission gone awry, 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 of the proverbial and literal floors, slap his estranged, desperately-fractured team back together and right what once went wrong.

Creator Rylend Grant 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.

The film comparisons flow freely and easily from Grant, a screenwriter by trade, with a decade’s worth of experience penning smart, character-driven action movies for the likes of JJ Abrams, Ridley Scott, Justin Linn, F. Gary Gray, and John Woo.

Grant reteams here 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. Collider recently announced that Aberrant is being developed for television by 24 & Felicity Executive Producer Tony Krantz.

"Brad is our very own Tokusatsu historian/expert. While I work to make sure Suicide Jockeysappeals to a hungry American action movie audience, he’s making sure diehard Tokusatsu fans will have an authentic experience,” says Grant.

Warner and Grant also happen to be ordained Soto Zen Buddhist monks. Grant actually once taught Mike Tyson how to meditate. Warner is the best-selling author of books like Hardcore Zen and Sit Down and Shut Up.

“Our Zen practice is a major influence on Suicide Jockeys. It’s a big, poppy, action thrill ride, obviously… but we’re also wrestling with some of life’s big and hairy existential questions here. We’re just doing it in a fun, heightened way,” says Grant.

Suicide Jockeys will also feature variant covers from Fabio Alves and Edson Ferreira who were both nominated for Ringo awards for their work on Grant’s much lauded superhero noir Banjax. Banjax made a dozen critics ten-best lists in 2019 and was nominated for a total of 4 Ringo Awards including Best Series alongside Bitter Root and Something is Killing the Children.

Source Point Press is a division of Ox Eye Media, publishing books, comics, and graphic novels. Suicide Jockeys #1 will be available in comic shops and online at on Wednesday, Aug. 25, 2021.

  Hopefully, you're all enjoying those books. I'm just popping in quickly today to point you to another must-back campaign. My good friend David Pepose (Spencer & Locke) has just launched the campaign for issues 1 & 2 of his delightfully twisted fable set in the land of Oz... THE O.Z.

If you haven't check it yet, you're really missing out. It's a bonkers good time, one of the best Kickstarter books I've read, hands down. Do yourself a favor and GO BACK IT! RIGHT NOW!
