Top Shelf Productions have just announced that one of Wicked Comics’ favourite creators; the wickedly talented Jess Smart Smiley has joined the Top Shelf family. His latest graphic novel which is the first in a series of comic books Upside Down: A Vampire Tale, was introduced in the Top Shelf Kids Club sampler at Free Comic Book Day. The 6″ x 9″, all ages, 144 page long, deluxe 2 colour graphic novel will be released in time for Halloween this fall.

Harold is a friendly young vampire who lives in a piano and loves candy. Pretty normal, huh? …until he sets out for a dentist appointment that turns into the biggest adventure of his life! Now he’ll face bats, witches, magic spells, vampire frogs, mad scientists, and so much more! It’s a wild magical romp for all ages, just in time for Halloween.

I really enjoyed Upside Down! It has a goofiness that reminds of Joann Sfar, and the simplicity of its art is like a sophisticated version of Ed Emberley.” — Gene Luen Yang, author of American Born Chinese
