For those of you that love a good old horror/action comic filled to the brim with cameos from a whole horde of classic movie slashers and maniacs are going to love ‘We Kill the Dead’. The project is the brainchild of author John Lepper who is currently crowdfunding in order to get the concept pieced together into a full-on indie horror slasher comic. Joined on his mission along with artist Bryan Revell and Alex Giles on board for lettering the comic has been given permission to use a host of recognisable horror movie maniacs who will be popping up throughout the pages of this love letter to the slasher genre. For the full synopsis and rundown of 14 of the famous on-screen slashers that’ll be included in the new comic, with an extra special 15th A-lister, then head below.
“It is about a secret government agency whose mission is to combat thano-sapiens, undead killers such as Jason or Freddy. This first story of a planned trilogy entails Joanna, a survivor of a thano-sapien attack at her college, who enlists in the SSTB (Supernatural Special Tactics Bureau). Shortly after she joins, Jack the Ripper returns as a demonic being, last seen when SSTB leader, Nathan Scrimm, blew his head off with a grenade in the 80's. Now Jo, Nate, and the more-than-slightly-disturbed Agent Cooper race to discover the secret to stopping the legendary serial killer while battling an army of thano-sapiens under Jack's control.”
Amongst the 15 slashers on board are:
Thorn (Slasher House, Legacy of Thorn), Dollman (Methodic), Gurdy (100 Tears), Porkchop (Porkchop 1-3), Black Knight (Dead of Knight), BBK (Gutterballs), Billy (Billy Club), Crinoline Head (Crinoline Head, Dorchester's Revenge), Bonesetter (The Bonesetter, The Bonesetter Returns), Jonah (Jonah Lives), Verden Fell (FrightWorld), Jack-O (Jack-O), Stitches (Stitches), Blood Widow (Blood Widow) and that special 15th mystery guest!
