Bubba Ho-Tep is one of the most beloved horror cult films of all time. Now, you can own the comic book series from the minds of Joe Lansdale and Josh Jabcuga for a great price at Amazon!
Bubba Ho-Tep and the Cosmic Blood-Suckers is the prequel to the unforgettable Don Coscarelli film starring Bruce Campbell. From the talented Joe Lansdale, the book looks at the King’s life before he wound up in the Shady Rest Retirement Home in East Texas.
Josh Jabcuga has written the groovy IDW comic book series based on Lansdale’s work. Just as relevant and touching as the original movie, we get to see Elvis and Colonel Parker team up with the Nixon administration to fight aliens.
Also, the King forms a partnership with some other characters that almost makes this effort seem a little bit like The X-Files. The artwork is vibrant and psychedelic so you feel like you are right there in the 70’s with everyone.
If you haven’t had the chance to read this compelling series, you are in luck. Currently, Amazon is running a sale on the comics. You can get issues 1 through 3 for just $0.99 each. That’s less than $3.00 and just in time for the holiday season.
So, if you don’t know what to get that Joe Lansdale fan or horror movie lover for a stocking stuffer, these books make a terrific gift. For information on ordering click the following link.
Since the film is celebrating its 15th anniversary, this is another great way to honor the occasion by making it a double feature. Also, Bruce Campbell admirers should pick up the series since the actor announced that he was retiring from portraying Elvis this year.
