You've heard the phrase “I'm dying up here” as it relates to stand-up comedy, but in Knock 'Em Dead from AfterShock Comics, that could prove very true. The publisher has announced this new series from writer Eliot Rahal, artist Mattia Monaco, colorist Matt Milla, and letterer Taylor Esposito, described as “a supernatural horror about comedy.”

Sometimes you kill. Sometimes you get killed. But no matter what, everyone dies the first time they go on stage. Pryor Brice has always wanted to be funny. And now, he’s taken the plunge and started doing stand-up comedy. Unfortunately, his older sister – Ronan – wants her brother to stop daydreaming and focus on his future. Pryor is determined to succeed…the only problem is: He totally sucks at stand-up. That is...until an accident changes everything, leading both Pryor and Ronan to discover comedy isn't all it's cracked up to be.

“I began my journey as a writer performing and writing stand-up comedy. I was a cast member at Chicago’s iconic Lincoln Lodge. And that experience was very formative for me. It’s the time in my life where I made the most mistakes.” says writer Eliot Rahal. “However, I did and still continue to have the privilege of knowing some incredibly talented/friends who have gone on to such amazing things. Also Stephen King and Jason Aaron’s work we’re huge influences on this. Along with American Werewolf in London.”

Knock 'Em Dead #1 features a main cover by Andy Clarke with colors by Jose Villarrubia and an incentive cover by Tony Harris. It's set for release on December 2nd, 2020.
