President and publisher of E-Comix, Vince Brusio, has announced that Halloween 2012 will be ground zero for the release of the company's second self-contained full-color comic book, Autopsy: Feast For A Funeral.
As with the publisher's first title (Dying Fetus: Supreme Violence), E-Comix's Autopsy: Feast For A Funeral is a fully-authorized title by one of the music industry's biggest names in metal. Shown the cover and told the plot for the book at the 10th-anniversary Maryland Deathfest, AUTOPSY gave Brusio their go-ahead to start work on the project and bring to life their brand of chaos in a ferocious full-color nightmare.
The one-shot comic book tells the twisted tale of teenage kids who make a terrible mistake that they must suffer dearly for. When they play with stolen property at an impromptu field party, they open a doorway that allows spirits into our material world. Friends are abducted. A rescue is planned, but none of this is made known to rival biker gangs who don't appreciate their turf trampled on by strangers. Seeking vengeance, they approach an old abandoned house to wreak havoc on their party crashers, and learn too late that once the door to Hell is opened, it can't be closed.
"AUTOPSY have driven the hearse bringing the masses death metal since the late '80s," Brusio quipped. "It was a natural fit to fuse their brand of music with a grisly ghost story. So we took the cover image of 'Severed Survival', expanded on it, and developed a story that takes place on Halloween night. It's pretty gory stuff. As it should be."
Vocalist/drummer for AUTOPSY, Chris Reifert, commented: "It was great to meet and chat with Vince at the Maryland Deathfest. We're damn excited about this, and know it will be a real killer when it's done!"
"Autopsy: Feast For A Funeral" details how Hell came on Halloween night for Johnny and his girlfriend, Heather. Their head-over-heels endless love and foreplay would be replaced with meals on meat hooks, and ghosts greedy for murder once a ouija board, spell book, and radio were used for incantations and magic. Dead surgeons have returned to practice forbidden surgeries. And these monsters with masks are eager to practice evil. It will not be just another drunken Halloween night for Chris and his friends dressed in costumes. They have unknowingly resurrected psychopaths that were once a cult in search of eternity. Consuming the flesh of their patients, these satanists searched for the secrets of our souls. And now Chris and his friends have just made the guest list.
