“The Demons 3 comic book is a new and exclusive instalment in the Demons franchise that effortlessly delivers the third part in the trilogy the fans have been waiting for,” says Francesco Simeoni, Arrow Films’ label manager.
“Over the years, there have been many films bearing the moniker of Demons 3,” continues comic book creator, Stefan Hutchinson, “but none of them were genuine sequels. We tried to set the record straight with the Demons 3 comic book. The comic is a gruesome and violent horror tale that will show the first two films in a totally new light. With Jeff Zornow’s chilling artwork, we’ve created sequel that’s like a 70s Marvel comic book on crack.”
