THE LAST COMIC BOOK ON THE LEFT Rises From Its Grave for VOLUME TWO!
Ben Kissel, Marcus Parks, and Henry Zebrowski Recruit James Tynion IV, Rick Veitch, Tyler Boss, for More Horror Anthology Atrocities
LOS ANGELES—Following the launch of THE LAST COMIC BOOK ON THE LEFT this summer, curators of the grotesque Marcus Parks, Henry Zebrowski, and Ben Kissel will return this Fall with a new volume stuffed with tales disgusting, disturbing, and perversely delightful. Alongside the clandestine organization known as Z2 Comics, the minds behind Last Podcast on the Left have recruited a new batch of
victims creators devoted to ushering terror and hilarity onto panel and page for THE LAST COMIC BOOK ON THE LEFT VOLUME 2. These conjurors of the profane will unleash new tales featuring Bigfoot, Philip K. Dick android, Gef the Talking Mongoose, the return of the Well Actually Killer, Alcatraz island, the Manson Family, and more sad, buttery goodness from Detective Popcorn.
What deviants are responsible for this debauchery?
• James Tynion IV (The Department of Truth, Something Is Killing the Children)
• Rick Veitch (Swamp Thing, Miracleman)
• Bob Fingerman (Minimum Wage, Beg the Question)
• Ian McGinty (Adventure Time, Invader Zim)
• Tom Neely (Henry & Glen Forever)
• Lonnie Nadler (Black Stars Above, X-Men)
• Brandon Montclare (Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur)
• Butch Mapa (Avengers)
• Masa Minoura (Genesis One: A Poppy Graphic Novel)
• Jensine Eckwall (Almost A Full Moon)
• Tyler Boss (4 Kids Walk Into a Bank, What’s the Furthest Place From Here?)
• Eliot Rahal (Machine Gun Kelly’s Hotel Diablo, the upcoming Cheech and Chong’s Chronicles: The Graphic Novel)
• Logan Faerber
• Bayard Morse
“Our insatiable hunger for ink and blood couldn’t be sustained with one volume,” Marcus Parks explains.
“We needed to see more Detective Popcorn. We craved more of the Well Actually Killer, let alone debuts from Gef the Talking Mongoose and Philip K. Dick android. This volume delivers all of this and more in an avalanche of paneled goodness,” Henry Zebrowski adds.
Like the first volume of The Last Comic Book on the Left, a series of prints will come bundled with deluxe editions of the book. Artists and subjects include:
• Koren Shadmi, Alien…um…accessories
• Ashley Ross, Hail Yourself
• Butch Mapa, The Birdman of Alcatraz
• Jenna Cha, Sexy Mothman
• Zack Pape, Jeffrey Dahmer’s Apartment
• Joefur, Last Podcast on the Left Medley
“The Last Podcast on the Left is such a sordid marriage of meticulously researched terror and sucker punch hilarity,” says Z2 Publisher and Editor Josh Frankel. “One book can’t contain that potent nightmare fuel—expect this and many, many more volumes to come.”
This deal was brokered by Z2 Comics A&R Liaison John Domingos, who joined the publisher following a decade plus working as a talent agent. “We set a pretty high bar for quality on the first book and are humbled by the fan response,” Domingos notes. “There are so many amazing creators that are also fans of the Last Podcast reaching out to be a part of this project that hopefully there will be even more to come.”https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/the-last-comic-book-on-the-left-rises-from-its-grave-for-volume-two/https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Z2-Comics-600x257.pnghttps://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Z2-Comics-150x64.pngNews
