We’ve been teasing this one over the past week, and we are stoked to finally reveal Michael Moreci’s new series from Image Comics, “Roche Limit”. Joining Moreci will be Vic Malhotra on art. Look for issue #1 in shops this September.
Nerdist reports, “A hardboiled sci-fi noir story, Roche Limit takes us to the edges of the cosmos to the eponymous colony of Roche Limit, a grueling, dangerous place that sits on the precipice of a mysterious energy source and teems with criminal activity. When a girl, Bekkah Hudson, goes missing though, it prompts a search that reveals some terrible truths about mankind and even more terrible dangers facing them.”
I’ve been a fan of Moreci since the first issue of “Hoax Hunters”, but he has since outdone himself time and time again. His last book, “Curse”, from BOOM! Studios is a werewolf masterpiece, that nobody should miss. Given his track record thus far, “Roche Limit” should already be on your pull list.
Talented up and coming filmmaker Ryan Spindell is working hard to get his indie anthology project off the ground, and has resorted to assembling a really awesome short documentary detailing years of horror anthologies.
“We Come In Pieces: The Rebirth of the Horror Anthology Film” is a documentary short that chronicles and celebrates the past, present, and future of horror anthology films.
According to the press release:
When filmmaker Ryan Spindell (“Kirksdale,” “The Root Of The Problem”) set out to make his horror anthology film The Mortuary Collection (Kickstarter here), producers rejected it outright. Time and time again, he was told that horror anthologies are dead at the studio level, but the question no one seemed to be able to answer was, why?
To find out Spindell teamed up with documentary filmmaker Ben Hethcoat (Dead Dad, D.I.Y) and together they sat down with legendary moviemakers Joe Dante (Gremlins, Twilight Zone: The Movie), Michael Dougherty (Trick R Treat), Darin Scott (Tales From The Hood), Larry Fessenden (We Sell The Dead) and a handful of genre experts to discuss the horror anthologies they love, the current state of the format, and the future of the horror anthology film. In the course of making the documentary, Spindell and Hethcoat discovered that despite the studios reluctance to get behind the horror anthology format, the fans of the long-dormant subgenre are as fervent as ever. With renewed enthusiasm the filmmakers have set out to connect directly with those fans by launching a Kickstarter Campaign to finance The Mortuary Collection independently.
Being that I produced the three V/H/S films, I think I have a pretty good answer to his question, but it’s not something I can just spew out in one sitting. There are so many factors that get in the way of a studio getting behind a horror anthology – the main one being fear.
Whatever the case may be, this is a fun, well put together indie doc that any horror fan would enjoy. And frankly, Spindell is a good filmmaker who I’d like to see behind the camera some more. Go support his campaign and keep the horror anthology alive.
Earlier today we posted the first video interview from Rock On The Range and now we’ve got a second one for you!
