The new SIXSMITHS original graphic novel, written by Jason Franks with art by J. Marc Schmidt, has now been solicited in Previews for October release:
THE SIXSMITHS are a family of suburban Satanists who’ve fallen prey to the global recession. Now their life is in turmoil: Ralf needs to find a new job; the twins, Cain and Lilith, need to survive the public school system; Annie needs to keep them all sane and under budget. Meanwhile, their estranged elder daughter Jezabelle is having her own crisis of the faith. Will the Devil rise to smite their enemies, or will he damn them with hellfire and wrath?

Published by Slave Labor Graphics, the book is a 168 page trade paperback, black and white interiors, colour cover, retailing for $12.95 USD.
The book contains all new material, structured into chapters, rather than gag strips, but featuring the same characters and situations in continuity with the webcomic.
Franks and Schmidt have put two and a half years of blood, sweat and tears* into this book in order to create the very finest Satanic family drama ever published in comic format–now it’s up to you to propagate the Devil’s dark gospel.
*Not their own blood, sweat and tears, of course–the Devil prefers the sacrifice of innocents.
