Screamland

Imagine Frankenstein as a balding alcoholic how hasn't worked in the film industry in years.  Ot The Mummy as a suspected terrorist after 9/11 who flees the country.  Imagine a naked Godzilla trying to make a buck in the dot.com porn industry.  Welcome to Screamland, the funny, highly original comic book series by writer Harold Sipe and artist Hector Casanova.   I purchased the graphic novel which contains issues #1-5. Screamland takes the iconic horror characters of the 1930's and imagines them as aged-out movie actors looking for a way to make a living in a modern world that has long since forgotten who they are.  


If you have a love for Universal Studio's Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolfman and The Mummy, this Screamland is a must-read.  I found myself laughing out loud and this wickedly inventive little comic series that is beautifully illustrated and tons of fun.  You can get Screamland at your local comic store or order it online through Amazon.com [where there is free postage and handling if you spend at least $25.00].
