The Deadlys™ is the story of a monster family who live in the spooky realm of Necroblivion™. When they’re not haunting and hunting mortals, they live surprisingly suburban lives.
The series focuses on one family that consists of Jack, the serial killer father. Elizabeth, the vampire mother and Morgan and Viktor their two children.
The Deadlys™ was an idea that had been rocking around my desk for years in some form or another. I had grown up watching classic shows like “The Munsters” and “The Addams Family” and loved the idea of monsters and odd balls just being themselves despite what others thought about them.
At one point near the finalization of their designs, I had Jack as a guy who had a jack-o-lantern head. It was only when I decided on the mask that the whole thing finally fell into place.
Several months later, I was ready to reveal them to the world and add my take to the pop culture stream. The Deadlys™ were launched on Oct. 4, 2010 and we hit the ground running and have never looked back.
