Show’s End: The Second Coming
Author: Anthony Cleveland – Artist: Jef Sadzinski –  Colorist: Fabi Marques – Letterer: Justin Birch

Synopsis: After the incidents of Show’s End Vol. 1, what’s left of Daxton Rickles’ Circus is now performing on street corners to get by, but a series of mysterious murders surrounding our troop forces them to head south for safety in a town operated and occupied by circus performers. However, the town is no longer what it once was. It is now ruled by a young, charismatic cult figure named Leviticus “Miss Levy” Jones, who believes those born “deformed” are the only ones truly perfect in the eyes of the creator. The longer the group stays, the more sinister the town is revealed to be. Meanwhile, a forgotten figure from Loralye’s past lurks in the distance and is coming to reveal her true path.

MEET THE CREATORS!

Writer, Anthony Cleveland (He/Him)
Anthony Cleveland began writing comics after departing from his position as County Coroner Deputy to pursue self-publishing. Shortly after, he was selected in Mad Cave Studios’ talent search and went on to write the hit series Show’s End, Stargazer, and a short in Grimm Tales from the Cave, a horror anthology showcasing many of today’s top talents in the genre. Anthony lives in Indiana with his wife and three children.

Penciler, Jeferson Sadzinski (He/Him) Jeferson has been working as a professional illustrator and comic book artist for over five years. His interest in sequential art first came from watching cartoons as a child.

Colorist, Fabi Marques (She/Her)
Fabi Marques is a Brazilian colorist from São Paulo. In addition to many independent projects, she’s done work for Brazilian and global publishers including Panini, Ubisoft, Mad Cave, Dauntless, Boom Studios and DC Comics. Her debut was 2016’s “The Secret of the Woods”, drawn by Felipe Nunes and written by Rafael Albuquerque. That same year she also participated in the anthology Femme Magnifique, a comic book anthology salute to 50 magnificent women who take names, crack ceilings, and change the game in pop, politics, art, and science which was nominated for an Eisner in the best anthology category. In 2020 she was chosen to represent Brazil in a special anthology called Batman: The World, which had groups of creators telling Batman stories set in their own home countries. In 2021, she was the winner of the coveted Angelo Agostini award for best colorist, a traditional award for Brazilian comics.

She is currently working on 3 multiple graphic novels she’s excited to announce soon.
Outside of comics, Fabi hosts the podcast 1001 Crimes that was just signed as exclusive by Spotify, and in her spare time she is learning how to play the guitar and likes to walk with her dog Ramona. She’s also a vegan, anti-fascist, and proud Latina.

She believes that colors can be to comics what soundtracks are to movies.
