Superstar comic book writer Cullen Bunn has yet another project coming out soon, this one from Lunchbox Press. Bunn will team with writer Kevin Watkins and artists Javier Saltares, Blacky Shepherd, Gary Bedell, and Adam McLaughlin along with letterer Troy Peteri for a new anthology comic book magazine called Graveyard Slaughter. The concept: comics evoking the nostalgic feel of the sort of horror movies you could find at your local video store, back when local video stores were still a thing.
The project is seeking $6,000 in funding on Kickstarter, and it's nearly halfway funded at the time we're writing this. $7 gets a digital copy of Graveyard Slaughter #1, while $15 gets a print copy. Check out the Kickstarter here, and read the press release below.
Lunchbox Press proudly presents Graveyard Slaughter on Kickstarter in June. This will be the second title published by Lunchbox Press. Their first title, Listen to the Thunder was successfully funded on Kickstarter.
Graveyard Slaughter is comic book anthology that embraces the bloody madness and nostalgia of 80s VHS gore. Those passionately curated horror sections of the deep dive video rental stores. We invite you to get a membership at our video store…Video Hell. Graveyard Slaughter will be running on Kickstarter all through June. Once funded…we plan on delivering the book by Halloween 2019.
