Q&A WITH BRIAN PULIDO ABOUT THE UPCOMING LADY DEATH KICKSTARTER APOCALYPTIC ABYSS #1 !
Jimmy Calabrese of Coffin Comics sat down with Lady Death writer/creator Brian Pulido about the upcoming graphic novel, LADY DEATH: APOCALYPTIC ABYSS #1, premiering on KICKSTARTER on February 7, 2018 at 7:00PM Arizona Time.
JIMMY CALABRESE: Love that title Apocalyptic Abyss! It sounds so METAL! Where do you come up with these great titles?
BRIAN PULIDO: Haha! I spend as much time on the titles as doing the entire story, but I can’t take all the credit. Mike MacLean has come up with some rather cool ones too ( Damnation Game, Oblivion Kiss)! Mainly, I ponder the story’s theme. At the same time I actually have a list of powerful words standing by that I would like to use. Then I go looking at the names of heavy metal songs and lyrics and see how I can mix it all up!
JC: Can you tell us more about Hellraiders? The first time we heard that term was during the last Lady Death Kickstarter as the title of the comic book that Coffin Comics gave away as a stretch goal! Who came up with that name?
BP: Francisca Pulido coined the term Hellraiders. It captures the spirit of the characters and their goal: to raid Hell and bring Lady Death back to earth! Why Lady Death? You will have to read to find out!
JC: This story sounds like it’s going to be the most violent yet! Should we worry about some of our favorite characters making it out alive?
BP: You should.
JC: The fans love that you are back at the helm co-writing Lady Death. They love the art and the solid storytelling. How does that fuel you when you are writing Lady Death?
BP: It certainly bolsters my confidence. To know that I am connecting with the readers, fans and collectors really fires me up.
JC: Is there any truth to the rumor that the character Gunnar is based off the new Judas Priest guitarist?
BP: If you take a look at pics, you can see a similarity.
JC: It seems like everything has been leading up to this story! Lady Death while surrounded by Hellwitch and her army, in the last panel of Unholy Ruin, state that they will make a “final stand”. How important is this story to the Lady Death story’s arc?
BP: It is critical to her current time in Hell. It is the culmination of all of it. The Jake storyline, the Elders storyline, the Hellwitch storyline, The Jester storyline, the Marion storyline, The Hellraiders storyline – they all come to a head here. This is the one! No joke!
JC: Wow. So, what comes after Apocalyptic Abyss #1?
BP: This August 2018, we unveil the Lady Death: Nightmare Symphony #1 Kickstarter campaign. That is all I will say for now.
The NEW Kickstarter, LADY DEATH: APOCALYPTIC ABYSS #1 launches on February 7, 2018 at 7:00PM MST/PDT (Arizona Time) in conjunction with the month long celebration of the Lady Death #1 24th Anniversary release! Kickstarter backers will be the first to read the new story, months before it’s released to the general comics market!
