One To Watch: Grindhouse: Drive In and Bleed Out #8 (possibly NSFW)

grindhouse 8

Ok folks here is an odd one. Grindhouse: Drive In and Bleed Out #8. Not a book that I would normally spotlight. I enjoyed the campy (Alex de Campi at that) series. This was the last issue. There are a couple of reasons to look at grabbing a copy.

So here is the deal with it.

Grindhouse: Drive In and Bleed Out #8 along with #7 were banned in Canada because of sexy content. But the thing that I missed last week was the cover artist. Take a look:

Did you see it in the lower right hand corner?

That’s right Milo Manara. The same artist that has been putting out sexy illustrations for years, but gained even more notoriety with the Spider Woman variant.

Manara has a good following, and this is the type of book that can be missed over by fans. This isn’t an overnight money maker. In fact, it is only going for about cover price on ebay. But leave this in the poly-bag (cringe) for a while and this on could be worth the nasty looks from your wife for holding on to it.

  1. My shop got shorted on the first half of this story and Diamond won’t ship it for whatever reason. They keep promising me I’ll get it but every week it’s still not there. I’ve been underwhelmed with this year so i’ll be dropping it after I grab issues 7 & 8.

    And I don’t get Canada banning this book. They have strip clubs….so you can see the real thing, just not the fake thing? I’ll never understand.

    1. Don’t worry about having to drop it. The book ends with issue 8. Also, I talked to Alex DeCampi about the book. She said this year didn’t go as planned as there were issues with an artist who messed them over. It derailed things and Alex said she had just kind of given up. I had pitched a hell of a story to her.
