Funny Book Splatter 035: R. Thomas Favino
This week’s guest is R. Thomas Favino, the writer of Voodoo Detective, a new breed of supernatural detective. The oversized first issue is currently on Kickstarter and features four separate stories, each building to a larger overall arc. I’ve had a chance to check it out already and it’s pretty cool. It’s a nice blend of horror and pulp that makes its way through the South.
In other news, October is a huge month for horror comics and I’ve got quite a few updates for you. Ben Grisanti is back on Kickstarter for issue #2 of Polybius Dreams, the series about a small town driven to chaos by a haunted arcade game in the 1980s. Phillip Sevy and Drew Zucker have completed their awesome digital series, The House and have just launched a Kickstarter campaign to release a collected edition. Finally, Michael R. Martin has also just launched a Kickstarter campaign for the second volume of the vampire series, Blood & Dust: Glenny Family Values. As always, I’ve personally backed these projects myself. I encourage you to do the same as these are some pretty awesome books right here.
