Paranormal Activity: The Search For Katie, A Case Study by Dr. Johann Averys DMN is the title of the comic that picks off right where the movie leaves us all hanging. Where is Micah? What happened to demon-captured Katie? It tells the story of Dr. Averys, the demon expert who we were not acquainted with in the film, and his search for Katie and some concrete answers. It’s written by Scott Lobdell and drawn by Mark Badger. When Gizmodo questioned Lobdell about the need for a comic book sequel he responded:
Even before I left the movie theater my mind was racing though a hundred different questions! Where did Katie go? How long had she been in thrall to the demon? Why did he do what he did to Micah… or have Katie do it? What about the mysterious Dr. Johann Averys — often mentioned but never seen? Could the case he was working on in Europe have anything to do with the case in San Diego? What would the investigation into the murder be like? One part cop forensics, one part study in demonology? The demon seemed like it had much larger fish to fry to scaring young women… could it have followers? A lot of this is set up in the first installment of the online comic book, and I can’t wait for the opportunity to further explore the world of Paranormal Activity.
