There is one thing that seems to be a common fear among many people, and that’s clowns. There has always been something terrifying about someone who puts on makeup to hide their true selves, creating fake personas and circling children. Pennywise would be the perfect example of why we hate clowns.
Source Point Press will soon deliver an new comic, titled Made-Up: Zombie Clown Circus, that will but readers to the test. While the comic, from writer Mira Mortal and artist John Rodriguez, may have a nightmarish villain, the comic’s art is a dream. I would even go so far as to say beautiful.

From the Press Release:
Source Point Press is releasing a new horror graphic novel titled Made-Up: Zombie Clown Circus digitally this month, and in print this May. Writer Mira Mortal and artist John “JAR” Rodriguez present this one-shot graphic novel that puts a fresh twist on zombie – horror and takes “wigging out” to a whole new level! A complete side-show of gore, suspense, hilarity, and circus pandemonium!
Hours before show time, a toxic ingredient in a batch of white make up has turned circus clowns into flesh-hungry zombies! Join the band of survivors, who use their unique talents to battle the horde: A renowned pair of high-flying Trapeze Artists, a fierce and fearsome Bearded Lady, deadly knife-throwing Dwarf Twins, a family of Contortionists
and more get in on the gory action as they try to get through the night–makeup-free.
“This is a very fun new take on a zombie story, it’s an absolute blast,” says Source Point Press Art Director Joshua Werner.
“Mira really utilizes the circus setting and characters to create unique situations, with some of the coolest kill scenes a horror fan has ever seen. John’s artwork is gorgeous, and is able to capture the heart of these characters and the horror
of the scenarios.” Editor-In-Chief Travis McIntire says “We’re excited to have Made-Up in the forefront of our 2017 horror releases. It’s available now on, and will soon be on ComicBlitz and Comixology as well. We’ll be debuting the graphic novel in print at Motor City Comic Con this May.”
Source Point Press is a Detroit-based publisher of horror, supernatural, occult and pulp comics, novels, and art books.
Founded in 2012 by Joshua Werner and Trico J. Lutkins, Source Point Press slowly paid their dues on the convention circuit, churning out titles.
