Monster Massacre Anthology Returns to Comics


Back in the late-’80s/early-’90s, there was a huge boom in comic books.

Not so much the brightly colored capes that most readers are used to, but plenty of other titles hit their peak. I’m talking, of course, about characters like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Cable from the X-men, the Age of Apocalypse – these all have experienced a resurgence on comic shelves. Today, news broke that another ’90s property is about to come back to life, Dave Elliot’s Monster Massacre.

The monster-themed anthology series originally had such talent on it as Dave Gibbons (Watchmen), James O’Barr (The Crow), Kevin O’Neill (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) and Kevin Eastman (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).

No word yet on when the title will be released or who the publisher is, rumor however is that it’s Image. There are not details yet as to whether or not Elliot will be taking on an artist as a partner and shy away from the former format or if we’ll be getting a monthly anthology written by some of our favorites artists/writers in the business. Considering the other iterations of the comic had large teams of “A” game creators I don’t see why this time would be any different.
