Eons ago, visitors from outer-space buried an item of unimaginable power in the primordial swamps of King Lake located outside what would become the town of Whisper. Millions of years later, an orbiting comet’s radioactive waves strike the Earth’s atmosphere. The extraterrestrial object hatches. And from the deep an alien murder monster that secretes brain slugs which causes their human victims to throw up their of near-unkillable zombie skeletons. But at its heart… Creature Feature is about payback. Jarrod Parker is an All-American Scholar Athlete all set to graduate when the body of his little brother, Issac Parker, is discovered on the shores of King Lake. His corpse mangled, Issac’s death was brutal. And Jarrod makes a vow of vengeance. He’ll find out who murdered his brother. Even if it takes him to the end of the world. Little does he know… that’s not too far away as the alien brain slugs descend upon the town of Whisper spawning a horde of screaming undead. It’s contemporary notologia. A made-up term that we are using because we’re assholes who make things that shouldn’t be allowed. Creature Feature is like: Return of the Living Dead/Attack the Block meets Moby Dick plus The Outsiders. It’s Spread/The Wilds/Swamp Thing/Sin City/The Beast at Wolfs Bay/The Runaways rolled into one five-issue miniseries.
