I remembering first reading Faust as a teenager – certainly not for everyone – but no one can doubt Tim Vigil’s place as an explorer, an innovator and an icon in the realm of independent horror comics.
TIM VIGIL JOINS ASYLUM OF HORRORS
Asylum of Horrors #2 features new Tim and Joe Vigil work.
Asylum Press announces that Asylum of Horrors #2 will contain a new story from iconic horror artist/writer Tim Vigil. Vigil brings his highly stylized voice to a post apocalyptic wasteland in “Survival Extinction Z”. Asylum of Horrors #2 (DIAMOND: JUL090699) can be previewed HERE. Vigil’s story will be a 3 part series that will be continued in subsequent issues of Asylum of Horrors. Survival Extinction “Z” is written by Jeff Vigil with art by Tim and Joe Vigil. The second issue of Asylum of Horrors will also include stories from Frank Forte, Szymon Kudranski, Billy George, Darren Sellars, Patrick Shanahan, Nenad Gucunja,and Marcin Ponomarew. Tim Vigil burst into the comic book scene with co creator David Quinn in the early nineties with the creation of the horror comic “Faust”. Detailed artwork and Vigil’s over the top story line captured comics fans interest and held it tight for the better part of a decade. Vigil has gone on to work with Avatar Press, Glenn Danzig and many others. “Nominated for awards, works published all over the world, Tim is a god,” explained Asylum Press Publisher Frank Forte. “You say the word Faust to any comic horror fan and they smile.”
Asylum of Horrors #2 coming soon – The inmates at the ASYLUM continue with a new breed of horror. This anthology features “Jacked In” by Frank Forte where a programmer gets double crossed by a greedy girlfriend and he gets his sweet revenge. Part 1 of Tim Vigil’s new “Survival Extinction Z” a post apocalyptic horror tale. Part 2 of “Ruined Earth”, Billy George’s tale of giant worms and armageddon. In “Ecce Homo” by Darren Sellars and Patrick Shanahan, a race of creatures, almost machine-like in their brutal efficiency break free from the confines of a two-dimensional world and begin a relentless assault, wiping any and all resistance from its path. In “ Transformation” by Marcin Ponomarew, a desperate man takes an injection. In ”The Connection” a mad doctor tries to find the source of another voice inside his head, by Forte. Another tale of The Doctor and Boris and the horrid inmates. A great collection of disturbing tales for the discerning horror fan. Cover by Aly fell
