I guess the best place to begin is with an introduction. My name is Eric Hobbs, and I’ve written a book titled THE BROADCAST set to be published by NBM later this fall.
Taking place during a treacherous storm, THE BROADCAST is about a rural Indiana town that loses power halfway through Orson Welles’ infamous WAR OF THE WORLDS broadcast having never learned the infamous radio play is a hoax.
Fearing the worst is upon them four diverse strangers band together in an effort to make it through the night. Tensions build, however, as long suppressed emotions and unsettled conflicts surface, and it isn’t long before all involved realize they have as much to fear from each other as they do the “alien invasion” heading their way.
I’ve teamed with artist Noel Tuazon for the project. His work on ELK’S RUN earned a Harvey nomination, and his most recent project, TUMOR, received critical acclaim across the board.
Here’s a brief look at what he’s bringing to the table with THE BROADCAST…
I don’t want to give too much away, but given that WE know there are no aliens… it’s pretty clear someone is lying, no?
