MAR181051 Cullen Bunn discusses the upcoming SUBSPECIES seriesMedia Release — Fan favorite writer Cullen Bunn (Deadpool, Harrow County, The Sixth Gun) took some time to talk about his upcoming Action Lab: Danger Zone series that continues the cult classic Full Moon film Subspecies.

This book is a direct sequel to the Subspecies movies. We’re not rebooting anything or forgetting what has come before. It has ties that go as far back as the earliest scenes of the first movie. It’s a natural continuation of Radu’s story. I loved all of the Full Moon movies, but Subspecies is probably my favorite. I want to bring that love to this comic book and share it with other fans of the film series.

In this bloody tale, Radu rises to terrorize the innocent once again, only this time, there are FIVE Radus instead of just one. If you are a horror lover, then this is the book for you. It’s bloody and vicious and terrifying. JimmyZ and I really studied the Subspecies movies in order to tell a story that compliments, continues, and elevates what has come before.

For me, there are vivid memories of watching Full Moon movies for the first time. There was a thrill, a sense of subversion, a delightful fright. I want readers to have the same sense when reading this series. I want them to feel like they are sitting in a dark room, eating popcorn, and watching Subspecies.

Over the years, I’ve gone back and forth with the question, “Am I a horror writer?” A lot of other comic creators will dodge that definition. You know what, though? I’m a horror writer, by God. Horror–in all its forms–is where I live and breathe. The Subspecies movies helped to guide me down that path in some way, I suppose. So, this series is a “thank you” to Full Moon. For other Subspecies fans, here are the characters you love, and they’re coming from me, someone who loves them as much as you do.

The SUBSPECIES sequel will run for three issues. The complete volume will be available on May 30th, 2018. Preorder the trade paperback with the Diamond item code MAR181051.
