Mockingbird Comic Art

Here is a sneak peak of the cover art of the upcoming comic book Mockingbird. The art work is created by Corey Bastiaans, who is adapting from the Playmaker Motion Pictures film.

Mockingbird is a psychological horror story about Catherine Lewis, who has found life difficult since her husband passed away. She misses her George, but she passes the time by taking care of the house they shared for over 40 years. She keeps his memory alive by talking to him every day. Now she can hear him talking back...calling her to the forest. 


Mockingbird is in production this summer and will be completed for Halloween 2014. Come back to the Playmaker Motion Pictures Web site for behind-the-scenes extras posted throughout the summer.
