Camp Dread

Description:

The "Summer Camp" horror trilogy was one of the most popular franchises of the 1980s. However, the decade ended and so did director Julian Barrett's career. Now Barrett plans to resurrect his gory series via a modern reboot patterned after reality filmmaking. With his former leading lady and an eclectic group of 10 young “contestants,” Barrett returns to the same locale where his old splatter-fests were filmed. When one of the campers is found savagely murdered, they realize there’s more at stake than just fame and fortune. Each of them is in a fight for their lives as they realize summer is over – forever.

Comics 




Nothing Eve 

Description:


Previously serialized, this never-finished (until now!) endearing graphic novel, which is about a young punk named Tom who learns the apocalypse is nigh, so he endearingly gets drunk and gets the girl.

This uniquely endearing take on the apocalypse is witnessed through the eyes of a young punk named Tom, who takes a remarkably philosophical approach upon learning the world is ending in 22 hours, deciding simply to do a few things he’s never done before. First up: get drunk. Next, go get the girl. But along the way, shit happens. The end-of-the-world milieu and Tom’s adventures that ensue make for compelling reading on their own, but it’s Wolfgang’s irresistible character designs, pitch-perfect dialogue, and the relationship between Tom and Edie (the girl) that make the reader fall in love with them. Wolfgang’s rubbery, crosshatchy style, reminiscent of early Peter Bagge, perfectly serves this sweet romance set against a hilarious, satirical twist on the End Times. Black & white
