Devon recently completed “Tales of Hot Rod Horror Vol. 2” with a variety of talented creators and “Josh Lobster & The Mystery of Aqua Park” with Chris Reilly.
His work on Kickstarter for Josh Lobster is described as “a little bit of Lovecraft, a little bit of Goonies, a little bit Jaws and a whole lot weird”.
Josh Lobster is the story of Josh and his sidekick Misty exploring the secrets of Goose Cove, Rhode Island. The traveling carnival comes to the island every year but this year something strange is afoot. The world’s population of sea life is making their way to Goose Cove. New evidence of 20-year-old murder comes to light. Vampire’s attack on the island cattle and the mysterious Barnacle Bill seems to be at the center of it all.
