The Last Podcast on the Left Comes to Comics with THe Last Comic Book on the Left
After producing nearly 500 full episodes exploring the darkest corners of humanity and supernatural dread, horror-comedy connoisseurs Marcus Parks, Henry Zebrowski, and Ben Kissel are ushering their Last Podcast on the Left into the strangest realm of all: comic books. The trio has partnered with Z2 Comics to release a new series of graphic novels, beginning with The Last Comic Book on the Left Vol. 1, debuting Spring 2022.
The project will pay homage to the storied history of horror comics with a curated, interlocking anthology in the vein of Creepy, Eerie, Tales From the Crypt, and The Vault of Horror. Participating creators include the most innovative voices in the genre, including:
- James Tynion IV (The Department of Truth, Something Is Killing the Children)
- Rick Veitch (Swamp Thing, Miracleman)
- Bob Fingerman (Minimum Wage, Beg the Question)
- Tyler Boss (4 Kids Walk Into a Bank, What’s the Furthest Place From Here?)
- Ryan Cady (Machine Gun Kelly’s Hotel Diablo, Sublime: $5 at the Door)
- Eliot Rahal (Machine Gun Kelly’s Hotel Diablo, the upcoming Cheech and Chong’s Chronicles: The Graphic Novel)
- Morgan Beem (Swamp Thing: Twin Branches, The Family Trade)
- Noah Van Sciver (Grateful Dead Origins, the upcoming Cheech and Chong’s Chronicles: The Graphic Novel)
- Logan Faerber
Marcus Parks and Henry Zebrowski will also contribute a story to the project, illustrated by legendary artist John McCrea (Hitman, The Boys: Herogasm). Eric Powell (The Goon, Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done?), Martin Morazzo (Ice Cream Man, HAHA), and Bob Fingerman provide cover art.
Further embracing the podcast’s marriage of the sinister and silly, deluxe editions of The Last Comic Book on the Left will also come bundled with a series of prints, revolving around suspiciously erotic cryptids and other spooky surrealism. Artists and subjects include:
- Ian McGinty, Detective Popcorn
- Sean Von Gorman, The Jersey Devil
- Noah Van Sciver, Bigfoot
- Jenna Cha, Mothman
- Norzine, Aum Shinrikyo
- Martin Morazzo, John Wayne Gacy
- Logan Faerber, Black Death
- Courtney Menard, The Rendlesham Forest Incident
The Last Comic Book on the Left Vol. 1 will be available this Spring.
