Isn’t that the guy from One Tree Hill?

Actor Chad Michael Murray, most notable perhaps for his role as Lucas Scott in the CW drama One Tree Hill, has written a graphic novel entitled, Everlast, published by Archaia Entertainment and illustrated by Trevor Hairsine (X-Men), Andrew Huerta (Batman Beyond), Robbi Rodriguez (Moon Lake), J. K. Woodward (Fallen Angel) and Daniel Zezelj (Luna Park).

In this pre-apocalyptic tale, protagonist Derek Everlast has been chosen to guide others to a place of rebirth for mankind known as Haven. He’s received a gift–an instinct called the Nudge–from a higher power, which he uses to guide a little girl named Melissa to Haven before the End of Days, sweeping readers along on their wild and harrowing journey.

Books were available for purchase at the Comic Con, and Chad Michael Murray, photographed here on Friday, was on hand signing as he chatted with fans and posed for photographs with them. Although he did ask that fans neither hug nor kiss him nor request any body parts be signed, which to this reporter seemed fair enough and sensible, he was quite friendly and personable. Books are currently available for purchase via Murray’s official website’s online store.
