Official Press Release
Just in time for Halloween, El MacFearsome Comic Squares returns to the scene with RETURN OF THE LOVIN' DEAD. An original graphic novel from New Orleans troublemakers Vernon Smith & Karen Chen, RETURN OF THE LOVIN' DEAD seeks to answer the age-old question: "Can a has-been celebrity zombie find true love in a house full of girls picked by a television studio?"
"It's basically Rock Of Love meets Night Of The Living Dead." says writer/artist Smith of the celebrity love show parody book. The story showcases the ignorant behavior, the ridiculous challenges, and the backstabbing & betrayal the contestants go through in the hopes of finding so-called love. It's then made even more ridiculous by the fact that the love interest is more than just a washed-up musician who's twice their age, he's actually a creature whose only desire is to ultimately kill and eat everyone! "We wanted to do something fun and funny," says co-creator Chen, "both for ourselves AND the reader."
RETURN OF THE LOVIN' DEAD, a 166-page graphic novel retailing for $14.50 is currently available for pre-order in the July Previews catalog on Page 286 (Order # JUL101001) from El MacFearsome Comic Squares. Expect it in stores this October.
