Horror Comic Quickie: New Line and Satan’s Three RIng Circus

The San Diego Comic Con is coming up and I came across a few fantastic comics over the past few weeks that I think you might want to check out while you’re attending the convention. Avatar Press started an incredible line entitled New Line Cinema’s House of Horror, which features one-shots of Friday the 13th, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Nightmare on Elm St. I read these issues and was astonished at how much writer Brian Pulido knows about these franchises! I was excited when i found out that these will become actual comic lines in the very near future. For more details click here. Another great book for your toilet hour is one called Satan’s Three Ring Circus by Asylum Press. The book is like a satanic version of Tales from the Crypt with tons of short fun stories to keep your active brain busy. Hopefully we’ll come across some more great stuff at the con, but until then read on for a look at some of these great covers and synopses…

With Brian Pulido writing and Mike Wolfer on art, you know it will be an violent bloodbath of carnage! On the shore of pristine Crystal Lake lies the long-neglected Camp Tomorrow, badly in need of rehabilitation. Charged with reforming the camp, ten teenagers have come to the site with the hopes of earning a quick paycheck and partaking in the most decadent party-filled weekend of their lives. But as their first night of debauchery commences, they begin to learn, one by one, that their surprisingly common family backgrounds are a little too coincidental… And that their presence has reawakened the curse of Jason Voorhees! Striking forth from the shadows in an unrelenting orgy of blood, Jason will defend his territory at all costs, but is he truly the hunter or actually the prey in a much larger and more sinister plot?
