‘The Shawshank Redemption’ Meets ‘The Sixth Sense’: AfterShock Comics Announces ’10 Years To Death’ One-Shot

Described as “The Shawshank Redemption meets The Sixth Sense,” and inspired by a true story, AfterShock today announces 10 Years to Death from Aaron Douglas, Cliff Richards and Guy Major, coming this September:

A newly-hired prison guard, a notorious mass murderer finally incarcerated for his crimes, and the death that binds them together. What happens when the murdered becomes the murderer?”

As well as the standard edition AfterShock will also be offering a signed edition limited of 1000 copies signed by Battlestar Galactica’s “Chief,” and writer Aaron Douglas, selling at $19.99. There will also be an incentive cover and  signed cover edition both by Michael Gaydos.

As for to being based on a true story? Well, that “true story” is from Douglas’s own childhood, as he tells us in the accompany press release:

“This is a story born out of an experience I had as a young boy with one of my uncles and my dad. I snuck to a spot in the house to listen to my uncle relate his tale to my dad. It confused and terrified me at the time and to this day I still have a very creepy feeling inside when I tell it to people. I think it is a fascinating story and whenever I tell it people are enthralled and I want to share it with a wider audience. I hope this can achieve that.”

But, there are other inspirations too:

“As with all of my writing for AfterShock the inspirations come from CCO and Publisher Joe Pruett who demands more stories every time we are able to find each other for an evening out for dinner. I have a laundry list of stories and I piece meal them out to him hoping that he’ll fall in love with another one and want me to make it a book. He hasn’t failed me yet.” 

Now, let’s take a sneak peek at 10 Years to Death:

A creepy true-tale of horror coming just in time for the Witching Season from AfterShock Comics. And out September 29th, 2021.
