Comic book We Kill the Dead packed with indie movie slashers

05.29.2015by: Cody Hamman

Indie horror producer John Lepper is branching out into the world of comic books to write a four issue mini-series entitled WE KILL THE DEAD, which is about

a secret government agency whose mission is to combat thano-sapiens, undead killers such as Jason or Freddy. This first story of a planned trilogy entails Joanna, a survivor of a thano-sapien attack at her college, who enlists in the SSTB (Supernatural Special Tactics Bureau). Shortly after she joins, Jack the Ripper returns as a demonic being, last seen when SSTB leader, Nathan Scrimm, blew his head off with a grenade in the 80's. Now Jo, Nate, and the more-than-slightly-disturbed Agent Cooper race to discover the secret to stopping the legendary serial killer while battling an army of thano-sapiens under Jack's control.

The basic idea of a government agency that exists specifically to track down slashers is enough to get me intrigued, but things get even more interesting with the revelation that the book's army of slashers will be filled out by characters from several different independent movies.

So far, WE KILL THE DEAD has secured the rights to use the following killers:

Thorn from LEGACY OF THORN

Dollman from METHODIC

Gurdy from 100 TEARS

Porkchop from the PORKCHOP series

Black Knight from DEAD OF KNIGHT

Bowling Bag Killer from GUTTERBALLS

Billy from BILLY CLUB

Crinoline Head from CRINOLINE HEAD and DORCHESTER'S REVENGE

Bonesetter from THE BONESETTER and THE BONESETTER RETURNS

Jonah from JONAH LIVES

Verden Fell from FRIGHTWORLD

Jack-O from JACK-O

Stitches from STITCHES

Blood Widow from BLOOD WIDOW 

Mary Hatchet from BLOOD NIGHT: THE LEGEND OF MARY HATCHET

Evil Highlander from REDWOOD MASSACRE

Charlie from the short film project HIGH BEAMS

And there's more to come. I'm familiar with most of those films and characters, but some I've never heard of before, and this gives me incentive to seek them out. Mixing them all together within a horror/action comic book seems like a really cool idea to me. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

The art of WE KILL THE DEAD is being done by Bryan Revell, with Alex Giles handling the lettering. Lepper is hoping to get 5000 copies of each issue published, and to help make that happen he is currently running an Indiegogo campaign.
