MATINEE is an all-ages action-adventure inspired by - and a deconstruction of - the swashbuckling films of yesteryear (Captain Blood, The Adventures of Robin Hood, and The Prisoner of Zenda) and the long tradition of masked pulp heroes like The Shadow and Zorro.
Set in a quasi-fantastical Hollywood in the 1920's, Matinee weaves fictional characters with real-life celebrities of the past in the vein of novels Carter Beats the Devil and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay.
Created by two-time British Comic Award nominated writer/artist Owen Michael Johnson (Raygun Roads, Best Comic; Beast Wagon, Best Comic) and rising webcomic star Mark Penman, Matinee is illustrated by Assassin's Creed & Doctor Who artist V.V. Glass. It is currently in production and is expected to be released in 2018.
