Filmmakers Chris LaMartina and Jimmy George have unleashing a Kickstarter campaign for their new horror comic project ‘Burial Plots’. At the time of this writing, the campaign has already received funding well exceeding its goal and is still ongoing. Come on in for details and some rough sketches. If you like what you see, you can still get in on the action.
Inspired by creepy comics like ‘Tales from the Crypt’ and ‘The Witching Hour’, ‘Burial Plots’ contains thirty ghastly black-and-white pages, featuring two macabre adventures. With dread-inducing artwork and blood-soaked story lines, it is intended for creeps who like their fear mixed with fun.
In the segment ‘Bum Wrap’, a wronged homeless man discovers an ancient mummy and uses the decrepit creature to seek revenge. It’s a real rags-to-riches story!
In ‘Shapeshifters’, a scrawny recruit transforms after he joins a gym run by a pack of muscle head werewolves. Will this killer workout get him ripped in thirty days?
Since 2007, Chris LaMartina and Jimmy George have written and produced six award winning, critically-acclaimed horror features. With an anarchic knack for sharp wit and stylized bloodshed, their work has been praised by the New York Times, VICE, NPR, and MTV. Their film, ‘WNUF Halloween Special’ is currently streaming on Shudder and their Lovecraft comedy ‘Call Girl of Cthulhu’ tore up the international film festival circuit.
Illustrator John de Campos, aka. Ghostbat, has been producing artwork professionally since 2013. Specializing in show posters, album covers and logos, de Campos has covered a wide range of illustration needs while sharpening a versatile but accessible style. He is a founding member of the Baltimore Rock Opera Society.
‘Burial Plots’ will be the first comic from Baltimore-based Midnight Crew Studios.
