Feast your eyes on this teaser soon to be launched by Freaktown Comics. Writer and Freaktown impresario Russell Hillman is no stranger to weird fiction. Russell has an disturbed fondness for slasher movies and has studied the genre, fine-tuning and perfecting it, in comic book format. This one-shot comic looks to fit just the bill.
The Bowery, Lower Manhattan, 1980. The New York burlesque scene has faded away, replaced by strip joints, peep shows and porno palaces. One small club of indomitable performers – the Luxury Lounge – still holds out against the tide.
The art of burlesque is dying. For one person, it isn’t dying fast enough. As the bodies pile up, so do the suspects – could the killer be desperate club owner Mr Barnett? Cantankerous juggler The Amazing Ralph? Stale stand-up comic Martin Stevens?
A performer can die onstage a thousand times. Offstage, once is enough.
Deadly Burlesque is a one shot horror story inspired by the earliest of the first wave of eighties slasher movies. Written by Russell Hillman, art by Daniel Bell and letters by Sergio Calvet. 24 pages, full colour, £4.00. Deadly Burlesque will be released in November at the Thought Bubble Comic Convention in Leeds, England, with online release to follow.

Russell also has a story appearing in this year’s Hallowscream due to materialize from the gates of Hell on October 31st 2014.
