Five feathered friend’s foray finds frights, freaks, family foes, finally….Featherface!
THE EGG-XAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, The latest in the “Feathered Frights” series of horror movie parody comics bring to life the classic movie as you’ve never seen it before.
A trip with friends finds Sally soon on her own as one by one her friends and family are picked off by the mostrous Featherface and his family of freaks, in all manner of grisly ways.
This book joins A Nightmare on Egg Street, Flyday the 13th and Ducky in Swampline’s library, written by Chris Allen with art by regular collaborator Juan Fleites this book will appeal to fans of the movie and those just looking for a great read.
This is an ingenious poultry-based parody of the much loved horror film, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974).
WRITTEN BY CHRIS ALLEN
Chris Allen delivers a creative script in which he has included tweaks from the original motion picture into this thrilling 20 page full colour comic. Chris has added some of his jokes into the story whilst retaining the thrill of the gruesome movie. Chris has also considered those who have never seen the original film and made this an enjoyable read! I like the way he can add a comment to make you laugh while characters are being killed all around. He certainly knows how to use the comic layout to his advantage.
This is another well written spoof, with birds replacing the original characters. I found fun and would happily recommend.
ART by Juan Fleites
The artwork is fun and shows great expression from the feathered characters! Once again it is clear to see that writer and artist work closely to bring this fantastic parody to life.
COLOURS AND LETTERS BY CHRIS ALLEN
The detailed colouring and lettering sets the tone of the comic. The lettering is perfectly sized throughout the story and draws the eye where it needs to be.
Swampline Comics have produced their Feathered Feature comic ‘The Egg-xas Chainsaw Massacre‘ with the original film characters replaced with birds. This gives a fun new look on an old loved horror. Once again Swampline Comics have delivered all you can ask for, and more!
