For a number of years a good friend and I have been kicking around ideas for a comic book project based on the Blind Dead film series from the 70′s.
His name is David Zuzelo and he has been a virtual mentor for me through the groovy transgressive landscape of obscure and wonderful horror films from the 60′s and 70′s. Since I’ve been obsessed with this stuff from a young age Ive always thought of myself as knowledgeable- but believe me, Davids command of the subject is encyclopedic! His enthusiasm and pure love of the genre has been a constant source of inspiration for me. He’s got a blog that I read daily.
Our first of what I hope will be a long series of collaborations is a comic book adaptation of his brilliant short story Ascension of the Blind Dead. Read his full text version here here. And Stay tuned for more of the comic series.
