BLOOD FEUD BRINGS DEEP FRIED HORROR THIS OCTOBER
Not content with writing about a million comics including – but certainly not limited to – The Sixth Gun, Terrible Lizard, and now Hellbreak, Cullen Bunn is adding another title to his plate this October with the release of Blood Feud from Oni Press. Bunn teams up artist Drew Moss and colorist Nick Filardi, who he has worked with on Terrible Lizard and Helheim, respectively. The book is a Southern tale of vampires, necromancers, horrific spiders, and family feuds that survive beyond the grave.
Writer Cullen Bunn adds, “Subtitled ‘A Vampire Yarn... With Spiders,’ Blood Feud is a book that means a lot to me on a lot of different levels. It's a story that's been with me for years, and the characters are, in one way or another, people who were important in my life, especially while I was growing up in rural North Carolina and Missouri. Spider Creek, the town in which this horrific little tale takes place, may be fictional, but it's also very real. It draws bits and pieces from towns like Newton Grove and Dudley and Koshkonong and Thayer to form a place that might very well be the location for an invasion of blood-sucking demonic beasties. Blood Feud is also my chance to re-team with Drew Moss and Nick Filardi. This is a story of humor and horror in the vein of movies like Fright Night and Phantasm and Evil Dead 2, and I couldn't think of two co-conspirators to bring this story to life!”
I feel like I only just found out about Cullen Bunn and I'm regretting that it took me so long to check out his work. I've been catching up on some of his stuff and it's all been great. Blood Feud seems to mix horror and comedy which is almost always a fun time. This book is also part of the March Madness series of announcements that Oni Press has been rolling out that includes a few other titles as well as an open submission period beginning in May.
Blood Feud #1 debuts on October 7th, 2015.
