A crusader for the first amendment, the always controversial Fisher isn’t afraid to ruffle some feathers and in his first interview with Bloody-Disgusting he did just that. Fisher went in-depth about his highly influential comic book publishing house Boneyard Press, his new horror 24 horror channel (www.AmericanHorrors.com), and then exposed the crazy behind-the-scenes stories of comic book industry that the pros will never speak of.

Fisher unleashed and uncensored. READ MORE

“Do not confuse having your eyes open with being awake” Lapis tells Edith. And it’s immediately clear to me: this issue is Edith’s awakening. Menton3 has written a piece of work so gut wrenching and overpowering — I’m purposefully avoiding the word “profound” because it feels too cliché — that it sounds trite to call it a ‘comic book’. Not that comic books can’t be deep and insightful, but just like the characters that Menton3 has crafted in “The Memory Collectors”, this comic stands on a higher realm. READ MORE

The crossover will be handled by the regular creative teams of John Layman and Rob Guillory, and Tim Seeley and Mike Norton.
The two-issue miniseries will see Tony Chu as he ends up in small-town Wisconsin where there happen to be a bunch of people coming back to life. I’m ready to get weird. “Chew/Revival” #1 hits shops on May 28, 2014. READ MORE
