La Muerta #1: Primeval is only 2 weeks away from launching on Kickstarter!
So we sat down with La Muerta writer Mike MacLean to find out what more we can learn!
Coffin Comics: How does La Muerta: Primeval play into the Coffin Comics companywide event WORLD WAR DEATH?
Mike MacLean: After stealing Lady Death’s DNA, the HALO corporation created a slew of shadow labs around the globe to carry out nefarious experiments. One such lab was secretly built in the heart of the Amazon rain forest. But, consumed with arrogance, the HALO scientists failed to recognize that something else lurked within the jungle. Something so malevolent that it will forever alter La Muerta’s existence.
CC: How do you plan on topping the monstrous action that is La Muerta: Onslaught?
MM: It would be too damn hard to top the bullet-riddled mayhem of Onslaught. So instead, we embraced Cofin Comics roots and went creepy. At its heart, La Muerta: Primeval is a horror story set in the savage jungle and filled with unrelenting tension. This dread is brought to exquisite life by Joel Gomez’ amazing pencil work and Ceci de la Cruz’ incredible colors
But don’t worry, if Maria Diaz is involved, you can count on plenty of hardcore action. CC: What can you tell us about the first appearance of Temora?
MM: I don’t want to give too much away. I will say she is a sinister force to be reckoned with—nature’s seductive dark side. We, in our civilized cities, should consider ourselves lucky to never encounter her.
CC: Why would a fan of Lady Death want to read a La Muerta story?
MM: Everything you love about Lady Death—a beautiful, badass female struggling against dark supernatural forces—can be found in the pages of La Muerta. Give La Muerta: Primeval a shot. I’ll wager you won’t regret it.
CC: Why Kickstarter again?
MM: Coffin could go the traditional route and just sell La Muerta at your local comic shop. But then everyone would miss out on the pure insanity of a Brian Pulido kickstarter campaign. In the past Brian’s campaigns have boasted hordes of free bonuses, amazing variant covers, and chances to win super exclusive editions. There’s no telling what will happen next. CC Any final words?
MM: Once again, I want to express my gratitude to everyone who has backed a Coffin Comics project. We couldn’t create these books without you guys, and for that I am eternally grateful. SWORN!
FULL REVEAL!!! LA MUERTA #1: PRIMEVAL KICKSTARTER – THIS FRIDAY!
