EL GIGANTE - Graphic Novel Free Preview

We've covered plenty of Luchagore Productions sick work in horror; each having been of the short film variety. Well, it looks like that's changing real soon, as the violently awesome 'El Gigante' will be making its way back to print in the form of a graphic novel. If you've had the pleasure of viewing the short film, then you're probably as giddy as I am right about now; more so when Hiro Fujii and Daiju Kurabayashi are directly involved.

From the press release -


"El Gigante", the short film based on Shane McKenzie’s novel Muerte Con Carne, has been a massive hit for Luchagore Productions, playing in festivals worldwide and receiving insane critical acclaim.  We are pleased to announce that the famous short film has now been turned into a graphic novel by the extremely talented team of Hiro Fujii and Daiju Kurabayashi from Japan!  The vibrant colors and eye-popping visuals of the comic perfectly capture the tone of the film, and this is sure to be a huge hit with fans of the story.  The BLOOD and GORE ooze from the pages, and will leave the reader feeling dirty and filthy, yet satisfied!"

You may have heard that LuchaGore Productions and Gigi Saul Guerrero have a full length feature film coming soon called, "El Gigante" which expands on the award winning short by the same name. What you may NOT know is that both are based on Shane McKenzie's novel, "Muerte Con Carne" (translated as "Death With Meat"). Highly regarded for it's no-holds-barred approach to the very dark subject matter, fans of films like "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" may do themselves a favor by heading over to Amazon.com and ordering a copy for yourself. It'll be interesting to see if Gigi can match the visceral carnage painted by McKenzie's text.
