Sortie du premier numéro en octobre.

[quote=“Alex De Campi”]As a catchall, I’d say over the top violence/gore, a strong sexual element, and gratuitous badassery. My grindhouse comes with a healthy side serving of John Carpenter. The series is 8 issues, and that’s four complete, discrete 2 issue stories, each one from a different exploitation sub-genre. BEE VIXENS FROM MARS is the alien invasion / small town / sluts one; PRISON SHIP ANTARES is the women’s prison film… in space!; BRIDE OF BLOOD is the rape-revenge one; and FLESH FEAST OF THE DEVIL DOLL is the teenage girl gang / succubus one. So: alien tits; prison tits; bloody tits; underage tits. Hm, maybe we shouldn’t print that.

We open with Chris Peterson on Bee Vixens, then Simon Fraser with our prison girls, Federica Manfredi for the much darker revenge book, and finishing off with Gary Erskine drawing hot teenage girls on mopeds. By the way, I have all the art, plus a couple lettered pages from Bee Vixens. I could easily do another four stories in this series. I hope to the stars it sells because then I can do the gonzo space story and the blaxploitation story and and and….[/quote]
