"This direction evolved following our WorldStorm launch a few years ago. Looking at the landscape of the industry, we realized we needed to move our universe in a different direction, something that the “Big Two” couldn’t, or wouldn’t, do for a long period of time. And we decided that direction should be toward a sci-fi/horror direction of a post-apocalyptic setting (to a degree, an almost logical extension to where the WSU has been headed for years). There have been “visions” of a devastated, bleak future in other mainstream super-hero books, but nothing with the lasting impact or direction that the World’s End books will be tackling."

"Originating in the ‘IDW’ Universe, the home Universe of CVO, Zombies versus Robots etc, there’s been a deadly viral outbreak. The infestation is making zombies out of organic and inorganic creatures alike! CVO fights to stop this plague, but disaster strikes and it escapes via an interdimensional portal, infecting OTHER iterations of reality... The universes of Transformers, Star Trek, GI Joe and Ghostbusters. Then the REAL fun begins!"

Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning did a few 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' comics for Wildstorm (I posted one last year for Halloween). As a fan of the franchise, it's my opinion that they 'got' the series and Leatherface to the point that it genuinely makes me sad that they couldn't have been on board for any of the recent films.

'About a Boy' was a one-shot focusing on Leatherface as a teenager. I remember being disappointed how the 2005 prequel completely skipped over Leatherface's early years. Abnett and Lanning's comic is exactly what should have been in the film.

Warning for gore and violence.

In 2006 Wildstorm gained the rights to publish comics off of the various New Line Horror characters (Freddy, Jason and Leatherface). Previously they were published by Avatar and as you can expect they were little more than gore porn. Wildstorm's output was a mixed bag but they published some genuinely good stories (one of them was the comic where Jason befriends a deformed boy which you can see in the archives).

In my opinion the best comic published from them was the initial series from 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning with Wesley Craig on art. It's one of the better horror comics I've read and it makes me genuinely sad that Abnett and Lanning never worked on any of the recent films because this would have been ten times better than the 'prequel' or the 3D movie that just came out.

As a content warning there's an included rape scene in addition to the usual gore and violence.

His style helped tell the tale with detail and fragility.

That clashed with the simple and solid depictions that'd come before in IDW's universe.

The clash was made obvious at the end of issue #3, when the protagonists met an antagonist.

Galvatron, seeking to raise dormant Cybertronians to fight the thing called D-Void, came to Dykayra.

There, he met a face he wasn't expecting.

" I-it cannot be! "

" Oh, but it is, Galvatron.. "

His familiar foe loomed. )

But not, sadly in a revived Marvel UK, but in the usual American Marvel.... though at least some British creators are involved.

The crossover is called

Wow, surprised no one has posted this yet, as the latest Journey Into Mystery refers to it.

Ah well, the conclusion and aftermath of the fun "Exiled" story arc.

Break the curse.  )

Ever have one of those days where you just need a good cry? Want to read something that just cuts deep, but leaves you feeling refreshed for having felt something so strongly afterwards?

Yeah... I gotcha covered.
