UDON Entertainment’s Casa Nostra Hits Stores
Pop Culture power house publisher UDON Entertainment has a rare treat for comic fans this holiday season as they release their new full color hardcover graphic novel, Casa Nostra.
What happens when a safe house and those that care for Chicago criminals are compromised? There’s only one solution — revenge. Writer Chris Sarracini (Street Fighter, Transformers) and artist Nick Kilislian (X-men, G.I. Joe) have ensured that the action and stunning visuals UDON is known for are brought to the table so old and new fans of the publisher will not be disappointed. The book hits direct market stores December 13th, 2017 and book trade December 26th, 2017. Casa Nostra will also be released digitally through comiXology.
“We’re very selective about what we publish, but sometimes you just look at a project and know it needs to be out in the world. Casa Nostra was one of those projects,” explained UDON Entertainment CEO Erik Ko. This graphic novel is only their sixth creator owned novel to be published in the fifteen plus years UDON has been in business.
