Have you ever wanted to have your artwork published in a comic book? Now is your chance as Radical Publishing has announced a new contest to test your illustration skills. Simply draw your best version of the villainous Jebediah Crone based on a scene from Radical’s newest horror miniseries, Abattoir, created by Darren Lynn Bousman and written by Rob Levin and Troy Peteri.

Read on for the details:

Radical Publishing will select a winner to be featured on a per issue basis, with five winners in total. For a chance to be featured in Abattoir #2, upload and email a link of your Jebediah Crone artwork to promotions@radicalpublishing.com no later than November 10th, 2010. Your illustration MUST be based on a scene of Jebediah Crone as seen in the pages of Abattoir #1.

Winner #1 will be announced on November 17th with runner-ups featured on Radical Publishing’s Facebook page. Each artist is limited to one illustration, and all illustrations are judged exclusively by Radical Publishing’s Art Director, Jeremy Berger.

That’s not all. After the release of Abattoir #6, Radical will hold a contest for fans to pick the best entry amongst the five individual winners. The winning illustration will then be featured in the Abattoir trade paperback collection.

Created by director Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw franchise, Mother’s Day), written by Rob Levin and Troy Peteri and illustrated by Bing Cansino, Abattoir #1 goes on sale October 27th, 2010. Taking place shortly after a brutal massacre occurs in a gorgeous house, real estate agent and family man Richard Ashwalt is assigned the impossible task of picking up the pieces and selling the property. As Richard inspects the blood-soaked grounds, a twisted old man journeys to the house with a sinister and terrifying purpose. Richard is about to be drawn into a web of shadows, murders, and massacres that will shatter him to his very core!

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Are Truth Seekers Playing by Slaughterhouse Rulez

Published

on

One of our favorite pairings of stars from the last twenty years is no doubt that of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Their chemistry is undeniable, and if you didn’t get enough of it in “Spaced,” Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul, you’re about to get a bellyful of it on both big and small screens.

Variety is reporting that Frost and Pegg will be starring in “Truth Seekers,” a half-hour comedy-horror TV show about a three-person paranormal investigation team.

According to the site, each installment of “Truth Seekers” will focus on a paranormal incident, a setup with clear monster-of-the-week potential. “Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something,” Pegg says. “It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown. Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London, and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.

That’s not all, though… the pair are also working on the feature film Slaughterhouse Rulez, a horror-comedy now in post-production. Directed by Crispian Mills and set in a well-to-do public school, the movie is “very satirical, very much about the U.K. selling itself off,” Pegg says. “It’s about fracking as well, and that unleashes some awful subterranean demon.

Both of these projects will be released under their Stolen Picture shingle. Stay tuned, kids! More as we get it!

Andrew and Sara are happily married and plan on spending some quality time together, but something sinister has other plans for their evening.
