hap-and-leanardShort, Scary Tales Publications (SST Publications) owner, Paul Fry is absolutely delighted to announce the signing of SST’s biggest deal to date. SST have acquired the exclusive comic/graphic novel rights to the entire series of best-selling and multiple award-winning author Joe R. Lansdale’s acclaimed “Hap and Leonard” crime books. The books will be adapted and illustrated by Finnish comic artist Jussi Piironen. They will be published as full-colour oversized hardcovers and also in oversized softcover and digital formats.

SST Publisher Paul Fry says: “This really is a huge honour for me and a massive deal for SST to have acquired the comic/graphic novel rights to Joe Lansdale’s entire ‘Hap and Leonard’ series. The books have ahuge fan base and are really incredible crime stories. It’s also fantastic for the series that Jussi Piironen will adapt and illustrate the books as he’s a long-time, massive fan of Hap and Leonard and will be perfect to adapt the books into graphic novel form. Our number one priority is to keep the graphic novels as close to the original books as possible. We really believe they need to stay completely faithful to the original work, and we really don’t want to let the fans down! The first title in the series, Savage Season is already in the works and we estimate a rough publication date of late 2015.”
