B-movie Brood

American Blood by Benjamin Marra. Fantagraphics, 2016. 240pp. 9781606999523.

american-bloodThis is tasteless, B-movie madness in the best sense of the word, a collection of comic book length work by the creator of Terror Assaulter: O.M.W.O.T. reproduced, for some reason, in purple ink. You’ll find something to love here if you find joy any of the following: the most tasteless blaxploitation films, The Ripping Friends, the more tasteless episodes of Ren & Stimpy, Johnny Ryan’s Prison Pit, Blade, Korgoth of Barbaria,  Steel Dawn, The Blood of Heroes, the wooden dialogue in Krull , the carnage in Django Unchained, and big-haired porn of the 70s. (If you only like some of those things, you’re going to find something objectionable.)

Sarah: This is like a tasting menu of the tasteless and/or the start of a really fun theme party!

Here’s the back cover, which serves as a more specific pitch for each of the stories in the book. (Click on it for a larger image.)
