A town is overrun with creatures straight out of your worst nightmares. Every creepy story you’ve ever heard? It’s true. The authorities refuse to acknowledge it. They may even be behind it. When all else fails, who’s left to save the day? A group of kids, living in an underground refuge for those the establishment has forgotten, are going to try. In the process, they’ll prove to everyone that they’re the real Urban Legendz.
Check out a preview of Urban Legendz, the first all-ages graphic novel by animators Nick Bruno, Paul Downs, and Michael Yates, below. Published by Humanoids, the hardcover retails for $14.95, and is due out in book stores and digitally next Tuesday, June 11th, and in comic stores the following day.

A group of young vigilantes roam the streets of Brooklyn solving supernatural crimes.
After his mother’s death, Dwayne is forced to uproot himself and move into the home where his mother grew up: a shabby apartment in Brooklyn. When your dad is a police officer, and your brother’s too cool for school, what’s an insecure teen supposed to do?
Dwayne’s personal problems are cast aside when he joins a new crew of young vigilantes, devoted to solving a series of sinister cases surrounding mysterious monsters that have been wreaking havoc throughout the city. What if all of the Urban Legends we all fear…were real?
