From The Press Release
DC HORROR EXPANDS WITH ‘SOUL PLUMBER’
FROM ‘LAST PODCAST ON THE LEFT’ TEAM
Finally, exorcism made easy in DC HORROR PRESENTS: SOUL PLUMBER.
From Marcus Parks, Henry Zebrowski and Ben Kissel, the hosts of THE LAST PODCAST ON THE LEFT, comes a new six-issue series that dives deep into the sewers of the human soul—also, there are demons.
Edgar Wiggins, a disgraced former seminary student, is desperate to find a way to answer what he believes is his higher calling. He thinks he’s found it in a seminar hosted in a hotel conference room by the Soul Plumbers, who have a machine that could be the secret to delivering souls from Satan. Edgar’s too broke to buy in, but that’s not enough to stop this true devotee: he steals the blueprints and builds a pirated version with what components he can afford on his gas station attendant salary. Then he goes after a demon, misses… and ends up pulling out something much worse.
“My first comic book was Swamp Thing #32 when I was five years old,” said writer Marcus Parks, “so doing a gross, weird horror comic with DC, featuring art by John McCrea no less, is beyond my wildest fantasies.”
Writer Henry Zebrowski added, “My mom showed me a homework assignment I did in the first grade that asked ‘what do you want to be when you grow up,’ and I wrote comic book writer. This is a dream come true and I can’t wait for you to see the gross story we are telling with DC.”
SOUL PLUMBERS marks the second title in the DC HORROR imprint. “We want to create great stories for people to read, that are scary, creepy, and fun for fans of horror whether or not they’re already comics readers,” said DC Horror editor Katie Kubert. “We’re building on the legacy from classics like House of Secrets with something that’s gross, and scary, and just fantastic.”
With gorgeous art by John McCrea (Hitman; Judge Dredd), SOUL PLUMBER is a hilarious, horrifying roller coaster ride for fans of comics, fans of horror, and fans of horror comics (Tales from the Crypt fans, come on down!). Issue #1 will be available wherever comics are sold on October 5, and digitally on the same day for DC UNIVERSE INFINITE SUBSCRIBERS at dcuniverseinfinite.com. In keeping with the Comics Code Authority, this one’s not for the kids and has an age rating of 17+.
