Niles Has Gone SAVAGE

Posted on 15th July 2008 by aaron in News - Tags: , , , ,

The boys over at Shock Till You Drop came across some news that Steve Niles (of 30 Days of Night fame) and company have created a new comic entitled SAVAGE.  The premise of the comic is as follows:  BIGFOOT vs. A PACK OF WEREWOLVES.  And if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a healthy dose of murderers and madmen.  This sounds like a pretty damn awesome project and I can’t wait to read it.  The book streets October 29th with the first in a four part series.  Check out the first issue’s cover art below:

Looking Forward To “New Year’s Day”

I’m kind of on the fence as to whether or not I like the Fear Itself miniseries currently running on NBC.  Obviously a watered-down version of Showtime’s superior Masters of Horror series (also created by Mick Garris), some episodes are absolute shit, while a few are nice little network gems.  The newest episode will air next thursday, July 17th entitle New Year’s Day.  The premise revolves around a woman, Helen, waking up in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by flesh-eating zombie fiends!  Wicked!  On top of that, the episode was written by 30 Days of Night scribe Steve Niles.  The episode will be directed by Darren Lynn Bousman of the SAW franchise, but I won’t hold that against it.  Check back here for my review.

Rob Zombie’s TYRANNOSAURUS REX Art

Ok, so aside from his work on the long delayed The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto, Rob Zombie’s also been working on an extremely secretive project called Tyrannosaurus Rex that, according to him, has nothing to do with the dinosaur.  There’s a ton of speculation that the movie will revolve around the comic that he and Steve Niles did entitled The Nail, a comic that revolves around a semi-pro wrestler and his family traveling the country and running into a bunch of satanic bikers.  Haven’t read it myself, but after reading up on it, I’m damn well going to.  In any case, much of the news around Tyrannosaurus Rex has been speculation as Zombie’s rather Hush Hush on the whole matter, but he has just released some artwork for the film.  Judging from this alone, the movie might very well be as kickass as The Devil’s Rejects.
