Here at the BCP Towers, we were big fans of Alex de Campi’s Grindhouse: Doors Open At Midnight and all its schlocky, exploitational awesomeness, so imagine our excitement at the news that come November, Alex is fixing to follow up the hit series with more of the same in Grindhouse: Drive In, Bleed Out!
Check out the official Dark Horse Comics press release below, which contains details about what to expect from the series (“bloody Chrismastime western“? shut up and take our money!), and let us know if you’re as excited about this announcement as we are.
Milwaukie, OR—From the perverted mind of Alex de Campi (Smoke/Ashes, Lady Zorro) comes the follow-up to Grindhouse, a sleeper hit and one of the most acclaimed series of 2013, just in time to celebrate the holidays in bloody style!
With alternating covers by superstar artist Francesco Francavilla, this series is just as excessive, gratuitous, and tasteless as the first—just like you love it.
Grindhouse is back from the dead, and it’s meaner, badder, and dirtier than ever! In the first of four new exploitation opuses, we join writer Alex de Campi for “Slay Ride,” a bloody Christmastime western with art and covers by R. M. Guéra(Scalped, Django Unchained).Drive
Future arcs include “Lady Danger: International Agent of B.O.O.T.I.,” a sexy espionage story featuring art from Afua Richardson; “Blood Lagoon,” a sequel to our very first story, “Bee Vixens from Mars,” with art by Chris Peterson; and “Nebulina,” a Barbarella-style space-bound sex fest, with art by Ulises Farinas (Catalyst Comix, Judge Dredd: Mega-City 2)!
Grindhouse: Drive In, Bleed Out #1 is on sale November 12, 2014, in comic shops everywhere (where it’s not banned)!
