The team that brought you the original “30 Days of Night” series is back together for a new project from 44FLOOD titled LUST. Following the wild success of 44FLOOD’s first project, “TOME”, the new publisher took to Kickstarter again this morning to help fund their second project. “LUST” is a 48-page comic/art/prose fusion book written by Steve Niles with art on one-half by menton3 and art on the other half by Ben Templesmith.
The team at 44FLOOD has been teasing this project for the past couple of weeks, and the book is said to explore virtues and vices of our world. This is the first time since “30 Days of Night” that Niles and Templesmith are teaming up, and that was almost a decade ago. The backing options for their Kickstarter offer a wide variety of original artwork from both Templesmith and menton3. I have a feeling this will be funded within a few hours. Check out the details after the jump. READ MORE
If you read horror comics, you know the name Ben Templesmith. Over the past decade Templesmith has solidified his spot as one of the top horror artists in the game. After a brief two year hiatus, he returned to the comics industry this past year with renewed appetite and vision.
Recently, Ben Templesmith co-founded a company called 44FLOOD alongside Menton3, Kasra Ghanbari, and Nick Idell as a way to offer unique comic/art fusion books. Their first project, an annual anthology series called “TOME”, was launched through Kickstarter, reaching it’s goal of $18,400 in only a few hours. Over the past week, 44FLOOD has been teasing a new project called “LUST” through their facebook page that will reunite Ben Templesmith and Steve Niles (more details coming tomorrow). Templesmith sat down with Bloody-disgusting at Montreal Comiccon to discuss his return to the industry, his excitement for the future of 44FLOOD, his views on art, and plenty more. READ MORE
