We Kill The Dead, theblood-shed’s first comic book project, is now in active production!
It is about a secret government agency whose mission is to combat thano-sapiens, undead killers such as Jason or Freddy. This first story of a planned trilogy entails Joanna, a survivor of a thano-sapien attack at her college, who enlists in the SSTB (Supernatural Special Tactics Bureau). Shortly after she joins, Jack the Ripper returns as a demonic being, last seen when SSTB leader, Nathan Scrimm, blew his head off with a grenade in the 80’s. Now Jo, Nate, and the more-than-slightly-disturbed Agent Cooper race to discover the secret to stopping the legendary serial killer while battling an army of thano-sapiens under Jack’s control.
The story is one that has evolved over almost a decade from an idea I had been when I was in high school and now I am making it a reality! I have always loved slasher films, especially supernatural ones like Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street. And another genre I love is military vs supernatural, the best trained soldiers humanity has to offer vs something beyond them. We Kill The Dead draws all of those great slasher films, as well as films like Dog Soldiers, Outpost and comics like Hack/Slash and pumps it up to the epic scale of The Avengers.
I have always loved the idea of a shared slasher universe. And that’s what has been created here. Setting a world record for most separately owned characters in a single comic book crossover, We Kill The Dead features cameos for 15 slashers from real horror films, all appearing in the same continuity!
The series is 4 issues in length and is written by myself with art by Bryan Revell and lettering by Alex Giles.
Perks of note in our Indiegogo include things like issues, prints, mp3’s, Indiegogo exclusive tee shirts, being written into the book as an SSTB agent or a slasher, being killed in the book by Jack the Ripper, or even having the WKTD team turn YOUR story into a comic book!
Every bit helps! We are already at $235 of our $8000 after less than 24 hours! If you can’t afford to contribute, then please share!
