Superman, Dorian Gray reviews - interview with Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw 2)

Pow! Managed to get another one of these pages done. I've even penciled a whole bunch of the next page, too - might be a few days before it's inked and shaded. Cool part - this scene will be finally finished - it's long! The next few scenes are much shorter - and in fact, the very next scene will only be one page.

Anyhow - check out this link to see the latest page of Tomb of the Undead!

Hope you like it. I almost didn't have any backgrounds on this page - it surprisingly didn't take long to add them in, which is good. I might add the backgrounds in last as a regular practice next time. I kind of like the results.

An Interview with Darren Lynn Bousman | Abattoir graphic novel
Darren Lynn Bousman has spent the past decade, give or take a year or two, making movies. But it was in 2004, after pitching an ultra-violent screenplay titled “The Desperate” to H-wood execs, that Bousman was contacted by James Wan and Leigh Whannell to direct “Saw II.” Seems that although “The Desperate” closely resembled the plot of “Saw,” it was creative – and bloody crazy enough – to capture Wan’s attention. The story was adapted and, under Bousman’s lens, became the second in the “Saw” franchise.

Needless to say, work came quickly for the Kansas native after that, including a Mudvayne video, another “Saw” film and the cult hit musical “Repo! The Genetic Opera.” And he has a grab bag of various film projects in the works, including a sort-of-remake of “Mother’s Day.” But Bousman has taken a new direction of late.

He and pal Michael Peterson had an idea for a film, but the project was “too big,” so they scaled it down into separate packages, one of which is the upcoming graphic novel “Abattoir,” published through Radical Comics. Rather than belabor the point in a lengthy expository introduction, we’ll let Bousman tell the story.

This exclusive interview with Bousman is brought to you as part of our latest Horror Channel “What Scares You?” essay writing contest. The winner gets a free copy of the first issue of the six-part serial “Abattoir” (due in stores on Oct. 27), along with other Radical (pun intended) prizes. Read more here: click here.

The Picture of Dorian Gray : A Graphic Novel
I had no idea this was written by Oscar Wilde - none. I'd like to read this some time. Not the necessarily the comic, but the real thing.

“Youth! Youth! There is absolutely nothing in the world worth having but youth!”

The Picture of Dorian Gray is a graphic adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s classic work, stunningly re-imagined by writer Ian Edginton and artist I.N.J. Culbard. This Gothic morality tale is the story of a man who, taken by his own beauty, pledges his soul in a desperate bid for eternal youth. But when his wish is granted, things go terribly wrong. A painting of Dorian begins to age in his place, while Dorian himself becomes a dangerous narcissist who destroys everyone standing in his way until the day he is forced to come face to face with the ugliness of his own conscience.
