Steve Foxe and Piotr Kowalski latest collaboration promises to deliver creepy, giant bug action in their upcoming four issue mini-series All Eight Eyes from Dark Horse Comics this April.
The 1950’s-inspired giant monster mash takes place in post-9/11 New York City, where disaffected college dropout Vin Spencer stumbles upon a mysterious man’s war against hidden creatures stalking some of the the city’s most vulnerable residents.
Foxe says that “I’ve been obsessed with giant-animal horror stories ever since seeing Them! and Gila! as a kid. All Eight Eyes is both an ode to the thrills of watching oversized predators chow down on humans and a reckoning with how much NYC has changed—not always for good—since the turn of the century, drawing on my own time in the East Village and Alphabet City. I’m so thrilled to be making this arachnid gross-out alongside Piotr, Brad, and Hass. The detail Piotr brings to not just the creepy-crawly aspects of the book, but to every chipped brick and sticky sidewalk of NYC, is unmatched, and Brad and Hass match his skill page for page.”
