Set for a 2010 debut, Abattoir chronicles real estate agent Richard Ashwalt, assigned the impossible task of cleaning up after a brutal massacre takes place at a mansion. As he cleans the blood-soaked grounds, a twisted old man journeys to the house with a sinister and terrifying purpose, and Richard is drawn into a web of shadows, murders and massacres that will shatter him to his very core…and make him run for his life.
Straight from Comic-con that Darren Bousman is going to develop the comic Abattoir for Radical publishing which is a prequel to the film of the same name. The story is about a man sent to clean a house after a horrendous massacre, but things go terribly awry. This series looks like it will be pretty fun. More info after the break.
Now available from Radical Publishing is Steve Nile’s City of Dust. Beyond the break you can read my review of the comic to see if it’s worth picking up.
