Published under the creator's own Pathetic Aesthetic Comics, the books sees two comic book store employees abduct filmmaker Kevin Smith and force him to pen a screenplay about them.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Blakely explained that the book is dedicated to Smith's fanbase and cited the work of Brian Michael Bendis as a major influence on the project.
"It's more than just homage to [Smith's] work. However, the book is black and white a la Clerks and features many shots of two guys just talking, like most Smith movies," he said. "The book is more an homage to Kevin Smith's dedicated and obsessive fan base; after all, they are the ones who save the day in the story!
"Tonally, the book is similar to Kevin Smith movies in as much that it is full of vulgar language, some drug use, and features two best friends who complain about pop culture things. I guess my work is also influenced by Brian Michael Bendis' work on Powers, which can be a pretty dialogue heavy book."
Kidnapping Kevin Smith will be available in the US and UK in August.
