Starting March 2018, Joe R. Lansdale returns to the world of Bubba Ho-Tep with a new prequel comic from IDW. Lansdale is co-writing Bubba Ho-Tep and the Cosmic Vampires with Joshua Jabcuga, and Todd Galusha will be handling the art. I love the idea of returning to this strange universe where Elvis Presley is a monster fighter. I’m just disappointed that we won’t get the sequel, Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires, that was promised at the end of the original movie’s credits.
Hail to the King, baby! Prior to the events of the original Bubba Ho-Tep cult story, Elvis was enlisted by President Nixon to defeat an alien threat unlike anything he’s faced before. IDW and award-winning writer Joe R. Lansdale present Bubba Ho-Tep and the Cosmic Blood-Suckers!
