‘HIGH MOON’ RISING

Posted on 23rd March 2009 by aaron in News - Tags: , , , , , ,

Came across this story over at the Creepy Cool guys ‘n gals over at SHOCK TILL YOU DROP:

Production Weekly’s back with another quick, random update on a script currently garnering some form of attention in Hollywood (similar to their update on War – a script we’ve received since this report).

This time it’s High Moon. PW writes, “In Eddie Nickerson’s horror Western ‘High Moon’ a reckless outlaw is a small town’s only hope for survival from a vicious band of werewolves.” Those are the only details they’ve provided.

Our question: Is this an adaptation of Zuda Comics’ similarly-titled web series? (Zuda’s an imprint of DC Comics.) Created by David Gallaher and Steve Ellis, the story follows a bounty hunter who strolls into the town of Blest and finds himself neck-deep in lycanthropy and witchcraft.

We’ll do a bit of digging to find out more…

Bitchin’! I’ll watch that.  There seems to be a lot of potential for suckitude, but there also seems like a lot of potential for ass kicking.

THE STRANGE ADVENTURES OF H.P. LOVECRAFT

To know me is to know that my favourite writer of all time is H.P. Lovecraft.  I’ve read and re-read everything he’s written (almost, the selected letters have still eluded my grasp).  Well, it would seem that IMAGE COMICS have a new series going entitled THE STRANGE ADVENTURES OF H.P. LOVECRAFT.  Here’s the synopsis:

When an ancient curse transforms young H.P. Lovecraft’s darkest nightmares into reality, the timid writer becomes both an unwitting god of destruction and the only person who can battle the evil he’s unleashed into the world. One part biography, one part horror pulp, one part fugitive thriller and you have… one weird tale indeed.

Has the potential to either suck or be something interesting.  Check out one of the comic covers below:
