“Freakshow - Escape dos Sentidos” is an initiative of the program 89 Freak Show, Escape Time and Editora Draco
In an unprecedented joint initiative, the escape game company Escape Time, the radio program 89 Freak Show and the Publisher Draco are launching the comic book “Freakshow - Escape from the Senses”, which has the plot inspired by a horror-themed escape room.
With script Raphael Fernandesart Daniel Canedo and artwork Omar Viñole, HQ pays homage to the films of the subgenres torture porn, like “Mortal Games” and “The Hostel” in 24 pages of pure agony.
In the story, the guitarist Mário takes the members of his band, Os Baudelaires, to play an escape room and, with that, recover their team spirit very shaken after the last rehearsal. However, what none of them imagine is that this game was developed by a psychopath, who uses people as guinea pigs for his sick experiments involving the limits of the five senses.
HQ will be launched on Comic Con Experience 2018 and can be purchased at Artists' Alley table A32-33. Afterwards, the comic will be available in the main bookstores and specialized stores, on the Publisher Draco, at Escape Time and on Radio 89 FM (directly with broadcaster Dane Taranha).
“Freakshow - Escape dos Sentidos” has 24 pages in black and white, cardboard cover, format 17 x 24 cm and costs only R$ 9.90.
“In order for the reader to experience even more the sensations experienced by the characters, the look of the story adds to the Indian artwork a touch of real elements through photo collages, exposing the distress and disgust of the macabre challenges.”
- Daniel Canedo
“Our perception of reality is totally based on our senses, but what happens if we are released from these sensory limitations. It was through the villain of the story that I put all this to the test and ended up finding really distressing ways of exposing the sensory system of the characters to the test. I want to drive each of them and the most sensitive readers crazy in the process ”.
- Raphael Fernandes
“Comics have always been present in my life. When I met Raphael came the desire to join the passion for terror with the universe of comics. Later, Escape inaugurated the Mortal Games room and we saw the opportunity to complete this project ”.
- Dane Taranha, from 89 Freak Show
