A wise cracking Elvis. Sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Oh, and vampires. If you aren't currently reading the comic mini-series Bubba Ho-Tep and the Cosmic Bloodsuckers, well, I can't change the past mistakes you've been making in life. But maybe I can show you the way back to happiness with this exclusive look at issue #4 of this glorious horror comic...
...Written by Joshua Jabcuga (The Mummy: The Rise and Fall of Xango's Ax), with art by Tadd Galusha (Godzilla: Rage Across Time), Bubba Ho-Tep and the Cosmic Blood Suckers is an IDW mini-series based off of Joe R. Lansdale's prequel novel. The story centers around Elvis (who never actually died), and a group of agents who take care of supernatural problems, as they are tasked with bringing down a horde of alien vampires from another dimension.
Some of you may remember the Don Coscarelli film, Bubba Ho-Tep, which is based off one of Lansdale's short stories, and stars the legendary Bruce Campbell. While Bruce has no influence on Jabcuga's comic version of Elvis, the character is still wonderfully written with a witty sarcasm that fits in perfectly with this clever horror comedy. Did I also mention that there is plenty of gore and gratuitous nudity to satisfy fans of traditional, over the top horror?
With issue #3 releasing THIS WEDNESDAY, Mr. Jabcuga was badass enough to send over this EXCLUSIVE first look at the cover for issue #4. Check it out below, and take a look at my interview with Jabcuga on the 5-issue mini series from back in July. Don't continue depriving yourself of outrageous humor and alien vampires, live like The King and get your hands on Bubba Ho-Tep and the Cosmic Bloodsuckers while you still can.
Also, make sure to follow Josh Jabcuga at @jabcuga for any updates on the series.
