Though able to easily transition from writing My Little Pony to Lady Zorro, Alex de Campi is at her best when able to let loose and write without fear of restraint. That was obvious in the excellent 8-issue mini-series, Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight, which debuted last from Dark Horse and included everything from a female prison ship to alien insects.
Now Grindhouse is back for a second helping of 70s drive in movie themed-comics, with Alex once again scripting and a new series of artists helping her craft 4 more 3-part adventures.
Debuting November 12, the first two parter finds de Campi teaming up with well-regarded artist R. M. Guera (of Scalped) for a holiday-themed horror-fest called "Slay Ride," which is described as "a brutal holiday tale of revenge and supernatural terror."
The series this time is fully titled, Grindhouse: Drive in, Bleed Out and I for one can't wait to see just how depraved de Campi can get this year. If we start to get an annual helping of horror like this, I certainly wouldn't complain.
Dark Horse was kind enough to pass along the preview below, to whet your appetite. Enjoy, and don't forget to pick this one up on November 12th!
