You may remember a few years back I published my review of the short film, El Gigante (my review). This is a terrific short that is as fun to watch as it is gory. Now, the makers of the short have released a horror comic book based on the same character and story. Read the press release below for more details:
We all recognize LuchaGore Productions for their gritty, gory, and incredibly entertaining films. But most of all, we love LuchaGore because of their most memorable and successful film called El Gigante.
El Gigante touched the hearts of horror fans world wide and now LuchaGore is proud to present “EL GIGANTE: THE COMIC” in both English and Japanese.
With its new GRAPHIC & BOLD colored take of Mexican Lucha Libre, it will leave you breathless, blood thirsty. A true revival of the film, only this time your imagination can run wilder and bloodier.
Daiju Kurabayashi & Hiro Fujii came together with LuchaGore Productions to create a new brand of Horror on paper. The artistic Japanese signature of Kurabyashi and Fujii mixed in with LuchaGore’s gritty Tex Mex, is a perfect combo of nightmares that will leave you wanting more!
