MONSTER COMICS WORLD: BELA LUGOSI'S TALES FROM THE GRAVE #2 SNEAK PEAK

Kerry Gammill's second issue of the acclaimed BELA LUGOSI'S TALES FROM THE GRAVE is due on the spinner racks this coming July. That it coincides with the San Diego Comic Convention is no surprise. Independent comic books such as this are up against fierce competition from industry giants Marvel and DC, so it makes sense to capitalize on whatever marketing one can to promote a book.

I loved the first issue and am looking forward to the second. A special Halloween issue is in the works, too. The cover of issue #2 depicting one pissed-off Popeye is by none other than make-up artist extraordinaire Rick Baker. He rendered the digital image using the new super graphics design software ZBrush. Kerry Gammill added the background art for the finishing touch.

There is an article in the L.A. Times blog called "Hero Complex" that discusses more of the making of this excellent indie comic. Click HERE to read.
