Watch the new motion-comic Bottomfeeder Trailer!
Eibon Press is proud to announce the release of our most audacious and controversial horror comic series in an ALL NEW COLLECTED EDITION, which harkens back to the golden age of film noir cinema, combined with all the gritty excess of politically incorrect 1980's horror films. Yes, we’re talking about our notorious BOTTOMFEEDER series, once intended to be a feature film starring the legendary Joe Pilato of George A. Romero’s DAY OF THE DEAD fame as a grizzled bad lieutenant, locked in battle with a twelve foot tall horny fish monster right out of HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP. With Pilato having passed away recently, our new edition of BOTTOMFEEDER is both dedicated to Joe and, of course, “stars” the man himself, along with a gaggle of legendary horror stars from yesteryear, such as Joe Spinell, Zoe Tamerlis, Bill Moseley and Clu Gulager, all in “supporting roles,” illustrated with eerie exactitude by Eibon star artist Pat Carbajal (Lucio Fulci’s ZOMBIE, William Lustig’s MANIAC and THE BEYOND). The all-new FULL BLACK edition of BOTTOMFEEDER is a mind-blowing new look for the series: 172 pages of sheer terror and excess, in stunning black and white, with all-new gray tones that capture the mood and feel of a true film noir.
Series creator Shawn Lewis explains: “We had wanted to shoot the film in black and white because Joe Pilato thought it would be cool. I will never forget Joe's first comment after reading the film script, he said ‘this thing reads like CHINATOWN meets THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, we gotta do this old school and shoot it in black and white!' The original series, now sold out of its single issue run, was first produced in color for “commercial reasons,” but now reverts to its original intended medium. “When I saw what Stephen and Fatboy were doing with the new black and white color palette I was just floored. I wasn’t sure at first that it would work, but it’s even better in black and white. The gore is starker, the mood is creepier. It just fucking rules. It’s kind of like MAD MAX: FURY ROAD BLACK AND CHROME, where they stripped out the color and made it stark black and white.”
BOTTOMFEEDER FULL BLACK drops Friday June 19th at 7pm Pacific only at eibonpress.com and only 500 copies have been printed, making this new collection a must-have-and-get-it-now collector’s item. Each copy is sealed in our protective outer EIbon Sleeve and will contain an original Bottomfeeder SOUNDTRACK CD by Dave Neabore of the hip hop rock band Dog Eat Dog! The CD also features audio clips of Joe Pilato as detective Lieutenant Joe Angell. And the cherry on top: An all new INTRODUCTION by legendary author JOE R. LANSDALE. “Joe’s a buddy of Stephen’s,” says Lewis. “And of course Joe just loved BOTTOMFEEDER. It was a perfect fit.” Lansdale calls the book “Full flavor exploitation with a side of rancid butter.” And you can’t get any blacker than THAT.
