Glory for the Guenther
Zombies Get Ink & Utterly Sell Out
Evil Dead Live featured in SF Chronicle
Isotope enforcer Jared Guenther continues to dominate the SF zombie scene with his latest makeup and special effects work on Evil Dead Live which was spotlighted this week in the San Francisco Chronicle. With tickets for this off-Market stage adaptation of Sam Raimi's definitive zombie classic currently sold out for every single showing, your chances of seeing this play as slim as finding fresh flesh in a graveyard... that is, unless you email the folks at www.evildeadlive.com and beg them to extend this show into another weekend.
Check out more of Jared's work with an interview and photo cornucopia in this Comic Pimp profile on the Isotope's zombiefest launch event for IDW's Remains here and see even more grossness at Jared's official website 1000faces.com.
Cooke-ing with Gas
Darwyn Cooke @ SilverBulletComicBooks.com
Could we here at the Isotope love Darwyn Cooke more?
Cooke is responsible for some of our favorite moments in recent comic reading including such instant classics as Batman: Ego, Selina's Big Score, the utterly stylish Catwoman redesign... and created the mini-series that decisively proved that, yes, everything is indeed beautiful in the world;DC: The New Frontier, which just so happened to be one of the single best comics of 2004.
SBC's Markisan Naso gives us a substantial interview with the outspoken creator which is definitely not to be missed. Check it out here.
And in case you haven't already, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of:
DC: The New Frontier Vol 1
