Halloween31 Days of DEATH WALKS THE STREETS: Day 3 – After my co-writer Ben Brezinski and I regained our freedom at the end of 2007, we set out to go a different route with the DWTS project, penning an all-new comic book prequel that was set a few years before the first screenplay, setting up the events of the MASSIVE world we’d created. Some were even calling it “the STAR WARS of horror,” and in many ways, that was probably an unconscious (or conscious) template. Now, we’d never done comics before, and since neither of us were artists, we had to hire a crew for the costly job of making our stories into reality, and we wound up with a team that included Guilherme Balbi (Dark Horse Comics’ PREDATORS, DC Comics’ SUPERBOY), Kurt Hathway (JUSTICE LEAGUE), Javier Tartaglia (ETERNAL DESCENT, Marvel’s FANTASTIC FOUR, AVENGERS), and Milen Parvanov (RESIDENT EVIL, GRIMM FAIRY TALES) among others.  All said and done, DEATH WALKS THE STREETS #0 was released to much fanfare at the Wizard World Chicago Comic-Con in 2008, with a Wizard-exclusive variant cover by Mark Kidwell (BUMP, ’68) and ended up being named “a must-have variant” by Comics Buyer’s Guide.  We released one more issue (the Halloween issue) before the publisher ceased operations. Talk about luck. One cool thing that the DWTS comics did have? A great theme song by Australian rapper KidCrusher. Grab it as a FREE DOWNLOAD below and add it to your 2014 Halloween Music Playlist…
