Leaving the 'House' for Comics?

Leaving the 'House' for Comics?

There mightn’t be much movement on the “House of 1000 Corpses” sequel, but Rob Zombie’s definitely not shying away from movies. According to Variety, Rocker Zombie and author-cartoonist Steve Niles have created Creep Entertainment International, a horror-themed production company. The company will begin with three comic book projects that, down the road, are expected to be adapted for films: “The Nail” with Dark Horse Comics; “Bigfoot” with IDW Comics; and “Lords of Salem”, a combo music-comics project. All tales were co-written by Zombie and Niles. The books will be illustrated by some established comic talents. "Comics have become the storyboards for movies," Zombie told Variety. "All our comicbooks are stand-alones and are done in a movie way. We’re actually working backwards – these look like comic adaptations of films." Niles has already started to write “The Nail”, which is peopled with 1970s-style satanic bikers and wrestlers. Lords of Salem is based on a satanic band.
