An interesting looking comic that’s coming soon is from Devil’s Due & 1First entitled Lord Of Gore from Hack/Slash artist Daniel Leister. All I have for a release date is Fall of 2016 but this looks like it will be one to seek out. Get more details down below.
From The Press Release
Former Hack/Slash artist Daniel Leister is returning to the horror genre with his new series Lord of Gore. Leister is teaming up with writer D.B. Stanley to create this series that delves into the idea of a popular slasher film franchise is secretly a true-life snuff film. Lord of Gore is scheduled to release later in 2016. Find out more about Lord of Gore on Newsarama.
“There are so many clever layers to what D.B. and Daniel have cooked up that it really grabbed me,” said Devil’s Due / 1First Comics’ Josh Blaylock. “There’s a classic slasher element, a murder mystery, and to top it off, this behind the scenes look of the horror film industry itself – the conventions, the politics – it’s just great.”
In the miniseries, a screenwriter is hired to write the latest installment of a horror film franchise called Lord of Gore, and discovers that one of the original film’s iconic death scenes wasn’t staged — but actually happened. Shocked by what he discovers, he begins to look into the situation further when he’s targeted by the real life serial killer that the film franchise is based on.
