New York Comic-Con 2013 afforded attendees their share of comic book debuts, ashcans and teasers in Artist's Alley, but only one featured an axe battle against an old man in a parka with a multi-fanged mouth for an eyeball. That comic? A teaser for Spread by writer Justin Jordan (The Strange Talent of Luther Strode), artist Kyle Strahm (Haunt) and colorist Felipe Sobreiro (Heavy Metal). Jordan and Strahm gave away a roughly 14-page teaser of the potential series at the show with hopes of seeing the "Lone Wolf and Cub in a world eaten by John Carpenter's The Thing" horror comic resonate with readers and potentially spark a fuller publishing plan. For those who weren't able to attend NYCC, the team has posted the full teaser comic in digital form as a free (NSFW) download through October 25. CA hit up Jordan and Strahm to see what's on the horizon for the title and its team... and also to see if they'd played putt-putt together.
Movies: AMC will screen all three of Christopher Nolan's Batman films -- Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises -- in a row on July 19 at select theaters. Tickets go on sale June 11.
Gritty, textured inking and horror comics go together like blood capsules and candy on Halloween, and Kyle Strahm is the kind of artist who knows how to make some delicious monsters. Strahm has done his fair share of comic book work for titles such as Tim Seeley's Hack/Slash and Claudio Sanchez's Amory Wars, but the heft of his sketch work is considerable as well.Over on KyleStrah
