We’re launching our new VHS COMICS imprint in style, folks, with two amazing new titles, based on the cult classic films LASERBLAST and MANIAC!! Pre-orders begin on OCTOBER 13th at 7PM PST!
The 1980s LIVES ON… with VHS COMICS!
If you live VHS . . . if you love the 1980s . . . then we’ve got a line of comic books for you, adapted from the most popular films of the era and re-imagined as you’ve never seen them before We have TWO NEW SERIES NOW ON SALE, each destined to blow you away!
First up . . . let’s talk about:
A psycho teenager with a death wish against his powerful father has stolen the most dangerous weapon in the galaxy, pursued by the cosmic cops in a breakneck space chase that crash lands in the scorching desert of California! The battle that ensues will decide the fate of humanity . . . for if the Kula-Zen Laserblaster falls into the wrong hands, it will mean doom and destruction for all! And it looks like thing are already going pretty badly. Because an earthling named Billy, who’s been pushed around all his life, is about to discover . . . THE POWER. Whoever holds it in his hands will destroy anyone and everything in his path, and finally transform into a creature beyond evil!
Based on the 1978 drive-in classic movie that became a VHS era tape in rental stories of the early 1980s and later a classic episode of MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000, our innovative adaptation of Charles Band’s LASERBLAST is a wild re-telling of the legendary “wolf man from outer space” story and a tribute to the glory days of analog video. It’s an ongoing series, written by Eibon co-founder Stephen Romano and illustrated by incredible Eibon house artist Pat Carbajal. But the fun doesn’t stop with just the amazing comic book art. Remember this is VHS COMICS folks. And so accompanying each issue’s full comic story is a wealth of VHS supplemental articles and pin ups that will laser blast your mind! And, as always, the comic comes encased in our patented EIBON SLEEVE, with incredible alternate art by KYLE HOTZ AND JASON MOORE—plus jaw-dropping VHS style extras you won’t see in any other book!

But that’s not all . . . because we’ve also got . . .
You can lock your door. But you can’t lock the madman OUT OF YOUR MIND!
JOE SPINELL is . . . MANAC!!!
Frank Zito has a little problem. He loves girls. He loves his mother. And they all tell him to do really awful things. Walking the line between nightmare and insanity, between happiness and hallucination, Frank’s desperate acts of love and loyalty to the dark specters of his own twisted mind bring about the bloodiest and most bizarre crimes in the history of New York City. Why does he do it? Where does he come from? We may never know for sure. Frank is, after all, one hell of an unreliable narrator. But one thing is certain: Once you’ve delved deep into the warped mind of Frank Zito, you will never feel clean again . . .
Based on the cult classic horror film of 1980 which became one of the top selling VHS rentals of all time, MANIAC is a comic book designed to blow the minds and upset the stomachs of even the most die hard horror freaks. The classic character of Frank Zito, as written and portrayed by the legendary character actor JOE SPINELL, is meticulously, painfully, terrifyingly re-created in comic form by artist PAT CARBAJAL and explored in even deeper, crazier depths by Eibon Press co-founder/writer STEPHEN ROMANO. Officially licensed from the film’s creators and adapted from Spinell and director William Lustig’s original screenplay, this is the ultimate tribute to the CLASSIC MOVIE which started it all. Yeah, we dig the remake with Elijah Wood . . . but Joe was first, and here you’ll see and experience him as you’ve never seen him before! It’s an ongoing series that begins with the film adaptation and continues, as the twisted adventures of the MANIAC live on!
And remember this is VHS COMICS folks. And so accompanying each issue’s full comic story is a wealth of VHS supplemental articles and pin ups!
