Described by artist Chuck BB (Black Metal) as
"...sort of Ivan Brandon's
and my homage to straight up, balls-out eighties action movies like Predator
, Commando and Rambo," Deathface
is one of several comics projects coming up this year from Offset Comics
. In my interview
with him at New York Comic Con last year, Brandon (Viking
, NYC Mech
) pitched Offset as a comics "lab" whose mission is "to discard logistical motivation" of the existing comics apparatus -- "pages are 6.875 inches by 10.437 inches based on bulk paper costs... Margins and trims are determined by the potential for printer error... Comics are expressed in eight-page increments, and so on" -- and be "100% creatively motivated."
Offset projects also include Double Cross
by Daniel Krall and Destroyer
by Ivan Brandon and Eric Canete, but the vengeance-themed Deathface
would seem to be the first project out the gate. Specific release dates and format details are forthcoming, but you can get a better look at Deathface
in the video below.
