Devil Kickers by Vincent Hunt & Daniel Marc Chant
Freelance exorcists Chris and Peter Idol have seen a lot in their time. From bell-book-and-candle jobs for the Catholic Church to their own mother’s fatal possession, the brothers know a demon when they see one. They’re the best at what they do, and it beats working in a call centre.
But everyone meets their match eventually, and when the Idols are called to a baffling case involving a young girl, they realise the Good Book just isn’t going to cut it. Accompanied by Sister Sarah, the most fearsome nun bar none, they set out to do what any right-minded exorcist would do: make it up as they go along.
Sadly for the brothers, this is no ordinary demon. Freed by the half-cooked rite, Satan himself takes over the entire town. As the citizens turn as one against the crew, they must team up with a group of local students to try and get things under control. Will they get them out of bed in time? Can they beat the Prince of Darkness himself? And will ‘get thee behind me’ ever stop being funny?
With nods to Invasion of the Body Snatchers, From Dusk Till Dawn and Shaun of the Dead, Devil Kickers is a diabolically dark comedy and is a unique collaboration between horror author Daniel Marc Chant and comic creator Vincent Hunt.
“What’s not to like about a story that serves up demonic ducks, possessed doom metallers and sprinting nuns alongside a legion of fallen souls thirsting for revenge?” – Ginger Nuts of Horror
