Award-winning graphic novel publisher, Archaia Entertainment has set a release date of September 28 for FEEDING GROUND, a stylistic horror graphic novel telling the story of a Mexican family chased by werewolves as they cross the Mexico-U.S. border. Debuting in both English and Spanish, FEEDING GROUND deals head on with the debate surrounding illegal immigration. FEEDING GROUND (paper-over-board hardcover, 184 pp, $24.95, ISBN English Ed: 978-1-936393-02-2, ISBN Español Ed: 978-1-936393-12-1) begins with a new nightmare plaguing the Mexico-Arizona border. A famine caused by Blackwell Industries drives Diego Busqueda, a noble “coyote,” to lead his family across the unforgiving “Devil’s Highway,” a desert cursed with blistering days and deadly nights. However, an ancient evil that has plagued the region for generations has emerged from the shadows. Pitting real-world border politics against a boldly reimagined werewolf mythology, FEEDING GROUND questions the very nature of survival. Available on Amazon.com and wherever books are sold.
