GWAR to Release ‘Orgasmageddon’ Comic in June
The mighty GWAR are hard at work on a new album, which means this year's GWAR-B-Q won't be held. However, fans will be able to enjoy some new GWAR-related entertainment with the release of the GWAR: Orgasmageddon comic in June via Dynamite Entertainment. Check out a video preview above.
"It's awesome to have a comic coming out!" says Matt Maguire, also known as Sawborg Destructo. "When Matt Miner and I first talked, everything clicked and I knew we were going to do a cool project. We can't wait to show all of the amazing work that is being generated for this comic! With Dynamite in our corner, it's gonna be a big book!"
Writer Matt Miner says, "I always wanted to be the guy to help bring GWAR to modern-day comics. Most people when they get into comics want to do Batman or Spider-Man or write the next great Punisher story, but I really, really wanted to write my favorite scumdogs of the universe... the all-mighty GWAR! Although working on that other stuff would be cool, too."
As to the storyline of the comic, Miner says, "People who love fun comics are gonna dig this crazy story that dives into the past and shows how GWAR not only created humans, but shaped our history to what we now know as our actual modern day reality. GWAR fans are going to love that all the creators on the book are fans -- every single one, from me and artist Jonathan Brandon Sawyer, all the way to every single variant cover artist -- and GWAR themselves are contributing art and co-writing the book, to boot."
As to what GWAR fans will love most about the series, Maguire adds, "The blood... maybe the story... but mostly the blood. Oh, did we mention that Slymenstra Hymen is gonna be in it? And oh yeah -- blood!"
