TCM.com Underground Gig

Those of you following the Twitter feed already know that I finished up the strip I'm doing for TCM.com as part of their TCM Underground Lost Scenes feature. The Underground is the late Friday night slot where TCM airs sturdy Psychotronic cult flicks like Freaks, The Terror of Tiny Town, Reefer Madness, Plan Nine From Outer Space and Spider Baby,  The "Lost Scenes" themselves are 3-4 page comic strips depicting fictional lost/cut sequences from the films, done by folks like Pete Bagge, Stephanie Gladden and Troy Nixey. 

Anyway, my bit is a prologue sequence for 2000 Maniacs, which will be on the April TCM schedule. 2000 Maniacs, for those who don't already know, concerns itself with a town in Georgia inhabited by, um...two thousand maniacs. These two thousand terrible maniacs do terrible things to five or six terrible actors, resulting in some terribly contrived death sequences (that, at the time of the film's release, were considered incredibly gory and shocking). The prologue I did shows the town hall meeting where the Mayor and residents of Pleasant Valley finalize their weekend plans. Parts of it are very Murder Family, if you know what I mean. Anyway, I'll let y'all know when it's a'comin'.

In the meanwhile, time for sleep.
