A comic book anthology that embraces the gruesome, bloody, and manically fun horror section of an 80s VHS rental store…
If you’re old enough…or hip to awesome cinematic lore, you remember the joy of wandering the blissfully bloody aisles of the horror section of your local video store. We’re not talking about the big, brightly-lit stores like Blockbuster, either. We mean the hole-in-the-wall shops, where you could find some deep dive horror movies.
Well, welcome to Video Hell.
Lunchbox Press proudly presents Graveyard Slaughter…
The stories in this comic harken back to the dark, bloody, subversive horror yarns that sat in clamshell boxes on video stores shelves across the country. They’re gruesome and gory and fun horror tales, and we’re all psyched to be part of the book.
Once funded…we plan on delivering you the book by Halloween 2019.
Be kind. Rewind.
