Screenwriter Michael Schwartz (Netfilx’s Gnome Alone) brings classic, supernatural horror back to comics with ARMORED. Featuring the art of illustrator Ismael Hernández, with covers by Matthew Therrien, Jae Lee, Nick Pitarra, Chrissie Zullo, Scott Kolins, and Jeff Dickson, and lettering by Ferran Delgado, ARMORED is the story of Andy, an orphan who discovers a suit of armor possessed by the spirit Sir William, the knight who wore it centuries ago. 

Granted mystical powers by the suit, Andy must train with Sir William to defeat an evil entity and his monstrous minions hellbent on seizing the armor, all while on a quest to get to the bottom of a mysterious death that haunts his adopted family. 

Andy comes face to face with Sir William in “ARMORED.”

ARMORED already has horror fans and industry insiders buzzing.

“Michael Schwartz writes a fear-packed, suspenseful, youthful adventure with a twist that entices us to continue reading more to come,” says comedy icon and Ghostbusters creator Dan Aykroyd.

Goosebumps author R.L. Stine adds, “[ARMORED is] a fun read and a great new twist on old-fashioned horror. I have only one question: What happens next?”

Schwartz and Clover Press recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund ARMORED, and as of this writing, they have far exceeded their initial goal. However, there is still work to be done to get ARMORED into the hands of comics fans. Tiers suitable for all budgets are available, with a variety of perks on offer, including original art, signed copies, prints and more, so pledge now!
