Having become a cultural phenomenon through Netflix’s documentary series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness, Joe Exotic is now heading to the medium of comic books this month courtesy of TidalWave Productions and the graphic novel Infamous Tiger King. Check out the Kraven the Hunter-inspired cover here…
The official description for the graphic novel, which is set to serve as a sequel to the Netflix series as well as an origin story prequel for Joe Exotic (a.k.a. Joseph Allen Schreibvogel), reads as follows:
“Infamous: Tiger King: During the Age of COVID-19, the world needs a distraction. Perhaps that’s why we’re collectively riveted to Netflix’s Tiger King. A murder mystery in the vein of Dateline, Tiger King introduced the world to the flamboyant Joe Exotic, a former magician, country singer, and zookeeper with a troubled past. Joe now sits in jail for planning to murder his rival, Big Cat Rescue owner and animal rights activist Carole Baskin, who he accuses of killing her husband and feeding him to her tigers. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction in this origin story of both Joe and Carole in a flipbook.”
Infamous Tiger King is set for release later this month, and you can take a look at a preview of the graphic novel over at TMZ.
