Funny Book Splatter 021: Matt Miner
This week I caught up with Matt Miner. I’ve been following his work for some time, back to the punk rock zombie comic, Toe Tag Riot. Matt, along with Eric Palicki, is an editor of This Nightmare Kills Fascists, a new horror anthology framed around the current political climate. The book is currently on Kickstarter and it’s well worth your time. There are a ton of great creators onboard this project. In addition to Matt and Eric, there’s Ryan K. Lindsay, Ryan Ferrier, Justin Jordan, Christopher Sebela, Kelly Williams, Christian DiBari, and many more. I’ve backed the project myself and I urge you to do the same. You need to act fast though as the campaign runs through July 14th.
As if that wasn’t enough, Matt is also writing GWAR: Orgasmageddon through Dynamite Entertainment. I had no real exposure to GWAR prior to this book, but I am quickly becoming a fan after reading the first issue and talking to Matt about the group. He had me at “Penguins shooting blood out of their eyes.” You can pick up the first issue of GWAR: Orgasmageddon now and issue #2 is set to arrive on July 5th.
