Lot 13 is a prime example of how horror comics work in ways that films cannot. The premise thus far is a fairly simple ghost tale that involves your typical suburban family, however, the way it is presented on the page is such an efficient use of the medium. Niles script flows nicely, and Glenn Fabry’s artwork is so complimentary to the story it’s hard to imagine anyone else drawing this book. Without having to rely on CGI or practical effects, the story holds onto a Gothic mood rather than feeling like a modern low-budget horror film. Issue #2 drops today, November 28th, and I strongly recommend you check it out. READ MORE
DC Comics is giving it all they go this Halloween, launching a bunch of ripe new horror stories. Lot 13 is a book that has been on our radar for quite some time, combining the talents of horror masters Steve Niles and artist Glenn Fabry.
The series offers a new take on the undead, following a family who uncover something ghastly in a mysterious apartment complex. The artwork is absolutely stunning, it’s some of the best Fabry has put out which is saying a lot. Below we’ve got an exclusive preview of “Lot 13″ #1 that is set to hit the stores on Halloween day, 2012. READ MORE
Us folk know that Halloween is quickly approaching. It’s the one time of year we can spew out our horror knowledge, offer suggestions to non-horror heads, and bask in the glory of All Hallows’ Eve. DC sneaked Lot 13 into the October solicitations, a new horror story from Steve Niles, with art by Glenn Fabry. Bleeding Cool has been showing the book’s preview art for the last 2 years, and it’s finally hitting shops this year. Check out some of the awesome artwork below. READ MORE
This past weekend DC imprint Wildstorm made the announcement via their official blog that writer Steve Niles (“30 DAYS OF NIGHT”) would be teaming with illustrating mastermind Glenn Fabry (“PREACHER”, “HELLBLAZER”) for an all new original horror titled called “LOT 13″. When asked to talk about the series the artist seemed to have so much to say that he couldn’t find a way to convey it in a coherent manner, but from what we gather the series sounds like it is going to be bloody bit of fun just in time for the holiday. Details below.
Here’s What Fabry Says About The Title…
Glenn Fabry: “It’s the story of this poor unfortunate family who are having difficultly while moving house and they’ve decided they’re going to stop off at this motel in America. This motel thing kind of mysteriously appears. They’re tired, and they’re gonna stay the evening in this motel. But it’s haunted, and there are zombies and monsters — and zombie horses. I’m trying to find a way to get a zombie duck in there… We’ve got an enormous giant, who’s about four-hundred-feet tall. Little red people fall out of his chest into his crotch and land on the floor and explode. I’m basically trying for a combination of George A. Romero kind of horror and Spirited Away by Miyazaki, a germ of that kind of stuff. It’s actually the best work I’ve done for some years. I’m enjoying the project, and it’s looking really nice as far as I’m concerned. And it should be available in a couple of months, I think, the first issue. It’s gonna be six issues, and I’ve got my fingers crossed that it will sell well enough to be collected in a graphic novel. Then I can make a fortune and go away and rule the world from a private island.”
