Comic Book Divas and Legends Of Heroes And Villains have tried to warn everyone that THE “SQUIRRELS” are coming and yes they are coming but a little bit later than expected. The Alfred Hitchcock “The Birds” parody “SQUIRREL” will be debuting in October 2012.
Due to unforeseen events, we personally think that the squirrel’s got to artists and owner’s of Legends Of Heroes And Villains Richard Zerga and Kristi Zerga; Comic Book Divas heard that the squirrels pummeled Richard and Kristi Zarga with nuts in an attempt to make them stop production of “SQUIRREL” Luckily the bushy-tailed varmints lost interest and left.
Unfortunately the incident Made Mr. Zerga a bit “SQUIRRELY” and keeps muttering something about cashews.
But Comic Book Divas and Legends Of Heroes And Villains have some exciting news to bring to Comic Book Divas and Legends Of Heroes And Villains fans,and “SQUIRREL” fans most of all.
First we are sure you are asking yourselves when and where is “SQUIRREL” going to be premiering, well the answer is “SQUIRREL” will be debuting October 17th at Empire’s Comics Vault in Sacramento California with a “SQUIRREL” #1 Release Party, where fans can meet artists Richard Zerga and Kristi Zerga and get copies of the comic book signed, plus they will have other “SQUIRREL” merchandise on hand plus other comics from Legends Of Heroes And Villains.
The “SQUIRREL” invasion doesn’t stop there, the invasion continues at the Dallas Fan Days 19th-21st, as “SQUIRREL” makes its first convention appearance, not only will te comic book be making its first convention appearance but it will be debuting with a “SQUIRREL” variant cover featuring actress Anajanette Clewis. Anajnette Clewis portrays the K-KOOL News reporter who reports the “SQUIRREL” invasion from the safety of the news room, but will she remain safe?
Anjanette Clewis will be on hand to sign copies of the comic book as well as prints and other merchandise.
Plus Comic Book Divas and Legends Of Heroes And Villains are announcing that “SQUIRREL” has been extended from one issue to two issues due to all the squirrel thrills and chills and all the extra goodies we have packed the comic book with including interviews, artwork, and much more; one issue just could contain it all.
“SQUIRREL” is the brain-child of Comic Book Divas owner Jeff Hughes and Richard Zerga of Legends Of Heroes And Villains after talking about how a security guard pepper-sprayed a baby squirrel at a Texas school because he thought it was a danger to the children; a video was taken and soon went viral and was also shown across the country on news agencies. As the two talked the conversation turned to the Alfred Hitchcock classic “The Birds” and what would happen if the squirrels decided to rise up!
Soon the two had outlined a basic story plot, Jeff Hughes then went to work on the script as Richard Zerga and Elisabeth Zerga went to work on the art work for the comic book, the basic synopsis for the comic a twisted but simple tale.
A campus security guard pepper sprays s baby squirrel in front of school children, the squirrel squeals in pain as the children watch in horror; one of the students named “Lily” grabs the baby squirrel and she and her babysitter PJ takes the squirrel to the vet.
The next day Lilly, PJ and the vet release the baby squirrel back into the field and campers back into the forest. After returning to the forest the baby squirrel tells the other squirrels and other creatures of what occurred, soon the sound of chattering fills the forest
Soon the horde of squirrels will descend upon the small town; attacking everywhere including the tranquil park where both old and young had gathered to relax, play, and feed the squirrels but now the squirrels want something other than peanuts they want revenge!
“SQUIRREL” is a parody of the Alfred Hitchcock classic “The Birds” where a flock of birds attack a sleepy Northern California community , creating chaos and death everywhere. The 1963 film starred Tippi Hedren , Jessica Tandy,Suzanne Pleshette, and Rod Taylor. The movie is famous for some of the inspirational camera angles and frames, and with some of the most
