‘Monsters Are My Business (And Business is Bloody)’ announced at Dark Horse

‘Monsters Are My Business (And Business is Bloody)’ coming out on April 10, 2024.

Press Release

Dark Horse Comics has announced a new four-part series, Monsters Are My Business (And Business is Bloody), by Cullen Bunn and Patrick Piazzalunga, coming with bloody horror and humor. The first issue drops into comic shops on April 10, 2024.

“Some time ago, Patrick and I were discussing working together on a new creator-owned title,” said Bunn. “He sent me some concept sketches of this big, burly biker type and a chainsaw-wielding, cigar-smoking koala bear. From there, we discussed building a story of elder gods, mutant cults, mercenary necromancers, and a lot of bloody good violence. Monsters Are My Business was born! I am just in awe of Patrick’s ability to fuse horror and action and comedy so seamlessly. Readers are going to dig this book!”

So what’s Monsters Are My Business (And Business is Bloody) about?

Meet Tanner “Griz” Grisholm. Along with a shrewd necromancer who wants him dead and a chainsaw-wielding koala bear named Cuddles as he wages a bloody war against nightmares from beyond time and space. It’s thankless work, but someone has to do it. And when a group of government contractors goes missing in the nightmare landscape of the Flooded Zone, Griz stumbles into a mystery he may not be able to carve his way out of. His old biker pals, the Howling Gargoyles, are up to no good, and the memories might be too much for Griz to handle.

“I’m very excited about this comic,” adds Piazzalunga. “Cullen and I discussed creating a horror comedy with tentacled monsters. We are big fans of 80’s horror films, Lovecraft, splatter and gore. Cullen did a fantastic job. When I read the scripts I was super excited and I enjoyed drawing, if you like all this, Griz and Cuddles are waiting for you with their chainsaws!”
