Next month, Vault Comics will release “Deadbox,” a new horror series from Mark Russell (“Second Coming,” “The Flintstones”) and Benjamin Tiesma (“Dead Body Road: Bad Blood”). The book, the first horror comic by Russell, follows a cursed DVD rental unit whose films are dark reflections of the renter’s lives.
Here is what Russell has to say about the title:
“I wrote Deadbox as a horror story, not just about a cursed DVD rental machine, but also about the feeling of being trapped, boxed if you will, in a town that doesn’t get you and a place you will never feel at home in no matter how long you live there. As a kid who felt, in many ways, trapped by his upbringing and sought personal escape in movies, Deadbox tells a story that’s deeply personal to me, even though it’s about something as goofy as haunted movies. My hope is that as fewer and fewer Americans begin to recognize the place they call home, this will have a personal meaning for them, too. That we can each, in our own way, find a way to survive the horror of the everyday.”
We are thrilled to share an exclusive first look at the issue, which drops on September 1. Thanks again to Vault for the preview, and make sure to pick up the issue next month!
