It was one of Bleeding Cool's favourite comics of 2013. And, after a brief one-sided spat with Kelly Sue DeConnick's upcoming Bitch Planet, Alex De Campi's Grindhouse: Doors Open At Midnight returns for a second showing. Just in time for Christmas.
Ho ho fucking ho.
As ever, we can expect an insane mix of trope and offense with a surprising amount of character emerging from the mix. With the return of the breastacular Bee Vixens From Mars by De Campi, Chris Peterson and Simon Fraser (who previously worked on the Prison Ship Antares strip)
And we have Bride Of Blood, a tale of brutal female revenge returning with Federica Manfredi and a personal favourite of mine, Gary Erskine.
This was a hard book to read and a great comic to fall in love with. A guilty pleasure for some, a proud rallying cry for others. And I have never seen a writer with such diverse books being published simultaneously as Grindhouse and De Campi's other title, My Little Pony: Friendship Forever.
How I long for a crossover. But Grindhouse 2 will be one of the best comics Cristmas presents I could have got.
