Monoxide recently shared with fans on Kickstarter, “It’s like Ghostbusters meets the movie Black Sheep.”
DETROIT (PRWEB) February 18, 2020
This past July, over six million viewers tuned into “The Boys,” within the first ten days of debuting and ranked in the top ten, as “Best Shows to Watch on Amazon Prime.” Three years prior, “Preacher” captivated audiences on AMC and went on for four strong seasons. The man, behind all of this success, Executive Producer, Ken F. Levin. Levin has his sights set on a new project, a comic book series based on alternative rap duo, Twiztid, called “Haunted High-On’s.”
“Haunted High-On’s,” a five book comic book series that follows the duo, Jamie Madrox and Monoxide, from Twiztid as they become ghost hunters. Monoxide recently shared with fans on Kickstarter, “It’s like Ghostbusters meets the movie Black Sheep.” Jamie Madrox adds, “It’s funny, there’s some hi-jinxs, the story will take you in a direction you didn’t expect.” This Kickstarter campaign was launched in October of this past year, to keep up with the reader demand. In fact, since the “Haunted High-On’s” was launched at New York Comic Con in 2017, comic bookstores have had a hard time keeping copies on the shelf. The fans demanded more and Twiztid listened. The Kickstarter funded 300% over the original goal, leading the duo to create a collected edition graphic novel.
This past July, Levin and Twiztid met up at the San Diego Comic Con at an introduction made by writer of the comic, Dirk Manning. The group instantly connected. “We asked Ken to come to our show later in the evening after the convention, and he showed up, Madrox recollects. Not only did he show up, he stayed for the entire performance. We hung out after the show talking comics and TV. Monoxide adds, “Right there we knew this was the guy we needed to represent our beloved comic franchise.”
“I’m very excited that NightSky Productions will have the chance to work with Twiztid, Manning, and the rest of the team developing “Haunted High-On’s,” for television and film, Levin shared. There’s a reason Twiztid’s music gets more popular every year and this is now reflected in the success of the comics as well. We’re grateful to make this partnership happen.”

The development deal is already agreed upon and in the works.
