Cute! Carny! Contract Killers!

Cute! Carny! Contract Killers!

Official Press Release

AUGUST 8, MILWAUKIE, OR—Dark Horse Comics is headed to the circus this fall with Victor Gischler’s latest wild ride: Clown Fatale!

Written by Victor Gischler (Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Spike—A Dark Place, Punisher MAX, X-Men) and drawn by Italian artist Maurizio Rosenzweig, with colors by Moreno Dinisio, Clown Fatale is darkly humorous and graphically violent, a vivid, stylish, cinematic tale of action and blood. The series will also feature covers by Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash, Ex Sanguine, The Occultist).
“I wanted to write a comic that was like the baby of Russ Meyer and Quentin Tarantino on whiskey and meth, and Dark Horse was cool enough to let me do it,” stated writer Victor Gischler. “I wanted something that was grindhouse but simultaneously a parody of grindhouse. Clown Fatale is the result, and Maurizio and Moreno are killing it with the visuals.”

In the world of circus folk, there’s nothing lower than a clown. So when the Femme Clowns are mistaken for contract killers, they abandon their shabby traveling circus for a world of violence and cruelty—with clown makeup.

“Tim’s covers also perfectly capture that grindhouse vibe. I’ve been having a great time pandering to my own base instincts. I think a lot of readers are going to file this one under guilty pleasure,” added Gischler.

Clown Fatale #1 is in comic shops everywhere November 13, 2013!
