It’s no secret that 12x Billboard charting rap group TWIZTID cross over heavily into horror, animation, comic, weed and gaming culture – the duo have released action figures, comic books, cosplay videos, sodas and even launched their own festivals and upcoming pop culture convention – Astronomicon – happening next year (read more below).
Now, TWIZTID is adding another massive event to their calendar – New York ComicCon! TWIZTID will host a signing of their brand new comic book, entitled Twiztid: Haunted High-Ons, written by the demented duo themselves and famed comic writer Dirk Manning, and featuring illustrations by renowned Italian artists Marianna Pescosta and Alessandro de Fornasari. The comic book is published by Source Point Press. In Twiztid: Haunted High-Ons, our duo have carved out a comfortable side-gig for themselves as fake ghost hunters… but what happens when a routine house call yields not only a ghost but a killer demon to boot? Hijinks and horror, of course!

TWIZTID says: “We have talked about doing a REAL comic book for over a decade and it’s finally about to happen. If that’s not enough to put a smile on the ol’ face, then the fact our comic book will kick off at the New York ComicCon via the Source Point Booth with us, writer Dirk Manning and the creative team, is enough to leave us all laughing like lunatics!”
Source Point Press Founder and Art Director Joshua Werner praises the art in this publication: “It’s hard to find an incredible team as skilled and professional as Marianna Pescosta and Alessandro De Fornasari. The colors are gorgeous, setting every haunting scene, and Mari’s phenomenal art captured every moment of humor perfectly through the characters’ body language and expressions. This book is a blast, we can’t wait for you to get your hands on it.”
