Story

 Do you like strange and bizarre tales of mystery that send your imagination soaring? Did you grow up loving Tales From The CryptTwilight Zone, Creepshow, Goosebumps, Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark and stuff like that? Being a child of forts made of clamps and sheets, flashlights, and late night scary movies, I have always loved a good creepy story. I have always been good at telling stories. Well, quite frankly it’s due to having a very strange and crazy life. I was raised with a loving family and good friends, but sometimes things we grow up thinking are normal aren’t really that normal. Like seeing a ghost in your room but not understanding why the ghost looks like your younger cousin. Then finding out the next day that your cousin died in a horrible roadside accident around the time of night you were seeing her ghost? Or, the tall creepy figures that would stand over my bed and watch me sleep at night. They were so tall and grotesquely skinny they had to bend down to keep their shoulders from touching the ceiling. They would twitch and move in different ways but still somehow in unison with each other. I called them “the crooked people,” but we’ll save that story for Strange Stories For Strange People Volume 2.

I have quite a few stories to tell that will give you the best chills you’ve ever had. You will get to read my first 5 in this book!

Each one of these stories is based on elements of true events that I have directly seen or encountered personally in some way. My life has been a crazy one, but never boring!

                                                                             – Dirk Strangely

Strange Stories for Strange People is an anthology of 5 beautifully written stories containing elements of fantasy, horror, psychological thriller, sci-fi, and drama. If Tales From the Crypt and The Twilight Zone had a strange little baby that grew into a graphic novel, it would be called Strange Stories For Strangely People.

You get 5 stories written by underground artist Dirk Strangely and illustrated by 5 talented master illustrators ranging in various creatively impressive styles. This 72 page Graphic Novel captures the essence of classic horror-style comics with a modern-day twist and new fresh stories that will captivate all lovers of horror and bizarre. I can’t wait for you to see the interior pages beautifully and masterfully illustrated in black and white with extreme attention to detail.

Dirk Strangely collaborated with four of his favorite illustrators in the comic industry. Miggy Aguilar, Mark Lyons, Jarrod Perez, and Hollywood storyboard icon Steve Werblun  are undiscovered gems. The BEST part about this graphic novel is that not only are these stories well-written and take you to the wildest parts of my imagination, but this book also has FIVE different masterfully illustrated art styles YOU WILL LOVE!

Austin-native artist Miggy is a staple in the world of underground comic illustration. He is always producing new work, and the quality of his work is never compromised. He lives and breaths his art and this is reflected in his illustrations.

Miggy’s illustration style leads us through the outsider, grimy punk underworlds of imagination. Miggy is a master of his own rare style. He is influenced by the likes of Robert Crumb, classic cartoon illustrators such as Walt DisneyTex Avery, and many more! His style is truly something you have to see for yourself!

Houston-native artist, Mark is a master of the technical pen. You have never seen detail and style like his before. Mark is influenced by David Lynch and various other underground creatives that no one knows about but really should. Mark is one of the most creative and mind blowing talented illustrators that most will ever meet. When you get your book, grab a magnifying glass and check out all of the detail Mark puts into his work. It will blow your mind. His style and mood set the stage perfectly for, “In the Dead of Night.”

Another Houston-native artist, Jarrod’s forte is the ability to whip out well thought out, lightning-fast, stylized illustrations. His photographic memory allows him to retain endless archives of images that he is able to remember and depict in his unique style. He is influenced by the likes of Bob Fingerman, Frank Zappa, and Matt Groening. He also enjoys kittens and playing bass.

Residing in Houston, Texas, Dirk is an underground fine artist. He is a mixed media artist with a taste for the bizarre, dead trees, cats, old weird prohibition music, and exotic junkyards. He lives in a box made of wood, sheet rock, and miscellaneous junk amongst a hive of other human and animal-based creatures. Dirk was born in Las Vegas, Nevada and spent the majority of his childhood rebuilding old radios and communicating with aliens.

He is known for producing impressive stylized art using not only traditional media but other various materials such as incense, coffee, and blood oranges. He is influenced by the likes of Tom WaitsEdward GoreyCaravaggioDave McKeanDr. Suess, and Ralph Steadman.

Residing in California, Steve is a Hollywood storyboard Rock Star. He has story boarded movies such as, Along came Polly, Equilibrium, The Day After Tomorrow, Batman & Robin, The Real Ghostbusters series, and he was also the Courtroom artist during the O.J. Simpson trials.

Although Steve has made a career of Story boarding movies and providing various Celebrity Court room art, he has never had the opportunity to do something he always wanted to do, illustrate a comic… Until now!

Strange Stories For Strange People is Steve’s first published comic debut!

His art is intensely detailed and stylized in a way only a master illustrator could depict. Steve’s work is incredibly creative and detailed. His attention to detail in his illustrations may lead you to using a magnifying glass to give his work a closer look. Seriously!
