I found Screamland, a 2008 take on how famous monsters would handle retirement in Hollywood, a pleasant discovery when I read it late last year.
So I’m excited to hear that a sequel is on its way, this time as an ongoing series from Image. Screamland #1 is due out June 8 (preorder from Previews as APR11 0407), and to promote the series, provide a taste, and encourage customer orders, a 12-page promotional #0 issue has been released online. Screamland is written by Harold Sipe and Christopher Sebela and drawn by Lee Leslie.
It catches the new reader up on several key moments from the original story and sets up the premise for the new one — it’s the monster con circuit, and “monster porn” might ruin what’s left of a few careers.
