The cult-classic warrior-hero Deathstalker bursts into the comics scene from an all-star lineup of creators including Slash (Guns N’ Roses) and writer-director-creature-FX-wizard Steven Kostanski (Psycho Goreman, The Void)!

Deathstalker finds himself once again caught between forces larger than himself—a virgin worshiping cult, a sorcerer hell-bent on saving the world through mad science, and the pissed-off army of the Abraxeon kingdom…not to mention his ex-lover, Princess Evie. Monsters, magic, and mayhem abound…can’t a guy just swing his sword anymore?

The narrative is packed with monsters, magic, and mayhem, perfectly capturing the spirit of 80s b-movie charm.

Slash’s involvement in this project adds an exciting layer, bridging the gap between rock-n-roll and comic book storytelling. The collaboration with Kostanski, known for his work on “Psycho Goreman” and “The Void,” brings a unique blend of horror and humor to the table.
