Official Press Release
BERKELEY, CA -- From the demented mind of Rob
Zombie, comes THE HAUNTED WORLD OF EL SUPERBEASTO, a comic about the
strangest crime-fighters you've ever seen. With the animated feature
film starring Paul Giamatti, Rosario Dawson and Brian Posehn soon to
be released, Image Comics is collecting the entire hit series in one
volume. Now is your chance to pick up the madness right where it all
began! THE HAUNTED WORLD OF EL SUPERBEASTO is a 288 page trade
paperback that collects all of the adventures of Monsterland's avenger.
Rob Zombie stormed the cultural landscape as the lead singer and
songwriter of White Zombie. His gritty tales, gruff vocal style along
with his fascination with B-movies and horror comics quickly
attracted a huge and devout fan base. He has gone on to write and
direct the box office smash HOUSE OF A 1000 CORPSES and it's sequel
THE DEVIL'S REJECTS. With his long time love of comics and a story in
mind perfect for the printed page, Rob wrote EL SUPERBEASTO.
"When Rob Zombie writes a comic book, it attracts the best comic book
artists in the business. This book features Tony Moore, Dan
Brereton, EJ Su, Tommy Lee Edwards, J. Scott Campbell with Kieron
Dwyer as the anchor," says collaborator Val Staples. "Kieron is the
Michelangelo of alternative comics and kids are going to lose their
minds when they see this romp through Monsterland! "
"The great thing about comics is that there is no budget," says
Zombie. "You can do any crazy thing that you can think of. For
example: I need a giant swamp monster to shoot out of a mechanical
donkey's ass and attack a female space alien with DD breasts on top
of an exploding volcano, that's a tough call in a film, but in comics
it's NO PROBLEMO."
To celebrate the upcoming release, a contest is being held on the El
Superbeasto mySpace account where fans can win free prizes including
copies of the trade signed by Rob Zombie himself! Stop by today and
find out how to win.
